Can someone follow up on this ? That request says "it doesn't have huge changes but it would be nice to have it" is actually wrong since this v1.0 release actually adds Skylake support which is definitely a must-have rather than a nice-to-have feature. (At least for us).
Hmm, I can't update this in Debian unless I am NMUing the package of another maintainer, which I really don't want to do.
I could update this in PureOS, which would introduce a delta between Debian and PureOS.
The ideal solution would have been if the Debian maintainer had just updated the package...
