It's at version 0.7.2 already, but it hasn't been added to the stable repositories yet. Please consider adding it to Ubuntu directly, since Debian isn't likely to do it after so long.

Well its been six years since Debian was supposed to have this "shortly".

I dont think its going to happen.

Which is a real shame since this is the only sane music player I have seen on Linux.
