No, because as Matthias pointed out in the the bug release below it is
not included in the default install. There's a chance that given the
comments made by the development team the maintainer will re-consider
upgrading to this release.

No, its a technical decision not to ship an unstable release. That
said, Fedora *is* supposed to be cutting edge stuff and if the only
argument against version bumping is upstream's versioning system
(since dismissed on their mailing list) I agree that its high time to
up the game a little. :)
