Yes, should have been more precise. The 0.84 and 0.85 etoys packages  
are missing.

The latest packaged version is etoys-3.0.1916 from April 2008.

The 0.84 version was etoys-4.0.2206, the most recent 0.85 one is  
4.0.2318 (which works fine with all Sugar releases since at least 0.82).

The Squeak/Etoys Debian packaging seems stalled, there is a group page  
now but not much activity:


I joined the team list and posted announcements of new source  
releases, but nobody packaged them so far.
