You should rather use the packages from the Mate upstream repositories
for the time being since the packaging is still work-in-progress.

As you may know, Mate is split over several dozen packages and it
is practically impossible to package and upload all associated
packages within a short time frame and breakage is therefore to
be expected.

As for pluma, the package was just accepted into unstable as of
yesterday and is due to be upgraded to the latest upstream version
1.8.0 within the next days.

The reason why pluma is still on version 1.6.2 is because it has
been in the NEW queue for quite a long time and was packaged and
uploaded before Mate 1.8.0 was released. The idea was simply to wait
until packages in NEW would have been accepted before uploading the new
1.8.0 upstream versions. Thus, just wait a few days for pluma
to be updated.

Hope that helps!
