In the past new upstream releases broke the ABI without bumping the
soname, which is the normal behaviour of development releases. I'm
asking upstream from time to time when the stable release is to be
expected but it's not the time yet.

Don't put this into unstable yet, most probably this has to wait until
after squeeze unless upstream hurries a bit or starts proper library
versioning for the development releases.
