That's the latest version, AFAIK.

Until the LGPL3/GPL2 issue is resolved, those are the latest versions
that we can have in Debian, or else we'd have to get rid of Terminal.app
(and a few other packages) from Debian.

Yeah, there are a couple of build failures that I need to look into for
Renaissance 0.9.0 on powerpc and hppa.  I'm hoping that Renaissance
0.9.0 will be in Lenny.

> GORM.app [current version in Lenny: 1.2.2 Sid: 1.2.2]

AFAIK, the latest GORM.app needs newer -base/-gui, so this is also stuck
until the LGPL3/GPL2 issue is resolved.

If we have a resolution to the LGPL3/GPL2 issue soon, then I can get the
unstable release into Lenny (although I would much prefer if we had
something that the GNUstep developers bless as "stable").  Otherwise,
we're stuck with what we have right now.
