I wounder how the availability of these packages will effect Ubuntu. If Debian can really be agile and current it might be nice to see Ubuntu work from within Debian as a great preconfigured desktop option. Basicaly get rid of the *-ubuntu packages and use Debian main line.
Unfortunatly, this probably won't happen.
Ubuntu freezes Sid when they release, and thus there may be no equivilent package in Debian.
- 1.0-1 is uploaded to unstable, but doesn't reach testing due to it not building on $arch_which_ubuntu_ignores.
- Ubuntu snapshots Sid
- 1.1 is uploaded to unstable, which fixes some bugs, and introduces some more features. It reaches testing.
Now Ubuntu has a version which Debian doesn't and won't be able to provide security support for.
