Yes this package must be upgraded, at least in Hardy

Here's my quick .deb for those who don't want to wait any longer. It's built on Hardy for python 2.5. Again, this is by no means a release candidate, I just built it so I could have a deb to install.

Well it turns out I can't just make an incomplete package... so here's one that would work as a release candidate :)

Built for Python 2.4/2.5 on Hardy.

Nice one :)

Now if only ubuntu would put it in their distro...

Yes, please upgrade this, even for Gutsy (I've invested too much in it to want to go to Hardy any time soon; at least on this partition).

I second this. Please upgrade it.

It would be very nice to have this, we've been waiting years for the new release of pygame, and now it's finally here it's a great shame not to have it included in Hardy.
