A patched release was uploaded just before the official release, and
the two are very similar (if not completely identical).
Generally I'd expect the new package to be updated to Debian only
after the previous one has made it to testing. So figure on a
ten day delay.

The debian/ directory is stored in the CVS repository, and I usually
make a backported version for Sarge available within a day or two
of a new release - not done so for this one just yet, since i've been
extremely busy, but one will come shortly.
