Yes.  The question I assumed was about the latest version (1.1) as there 
are debs already available for the others.

Actually, I left off the smilee in my note as well.  I had taken a quick 
look and thought "great !" when I saw the August dates on the debian 
directory, and actually tried to build it.  
Heh.  I took another look afterwards and realized my mistake.  ;)

Anyway, a checkinstall deb worked out fine for the time being to satisfy 
my curiousity.

all the best,
