[Pkg-lirc-maint] Bug#777199: Not updated to latest upstream

Package: lirc
Version: 0.9.0~pre1-1.2

The lirc sources used (0.9.0-pre1) is now very old (2011), lagging two 
major and several minor releases behind upstream.

I'm filing this in my capacity as the upstream maintainer. The very old 
sources used by Debian are becoming a problem also for us, since it 
makes a substantial part of the user base using sources we don't 
maintain any more.

I'm perfectly aware that the decision to update, to what and when, is up 
to the Debian maintainers. That said, if I as the upstream could make 
anything to make an update easier, please let me know.
