There was a bit of slowdown in the development and Debian up-
dates stuff in the stable release only after a considerable
time for testing, but the newest version is, as far as I know,
in the "squeeze" (testing) version. On the othe hand building
the package yourself shouldn't be too difficult - it just might
be useful to deinstall the original package first to avoid
having incompatible versions of the header file and libraries
