It is likely that this won't happen until Jessie is released. As of
now, the focus is on the release and, anyway, there is no chance that
a new upstream makes its way into Jessie (one may think this is sad,
but that would have to be done way prior the freeze, noot after).

Even uploading a new release in unstable would be a bad idea because
it would make the upload of a possible RC fix to the current release
more difficult to do.

Eventually, one of the pkg-fonts maintainers may work on uploading the
new upstream release to experimental, this is about all what we can do
for now.
