I don't have any such plans, and I doubt the maintainer does either at
this late stage. And without pulling in the new upstream release, I don't
believe we get the new license, so it stays in non-free and we don't have
the packages built on most arches.

It's been like this for nine months, so let's just get it off the RC count,
and when the maintainer has time, the new version can go into unstable of
his own accord.
