You can ask for a backport on debian-backports mailing list. Or do a backport 
yourself. If there is a newer upstream release it may make sense to ask for it 
for unstable first and ask for a backport once it arrived in testing.

As to the maintenance status, I don´t know, you can try


for more details. Is maintained by Debian Extras KDE team, so I bet is still 
maintained, but can use help with packaging as the team has quite some 
packages I think.
