The kernel was updated with r1, but not to a newer upstream. In principle 
Debian does not do that, although adding a newer kernel is being considered 
for roughly the beginning of 2008.

For info about what updates are included in point releases, you should check 
their release announcements which are linked from the home page under
"News": http://www.debian.org/News/2007/20070817
You will find the kernel listed their for security updates.
