Yeah we are overdue for a release. I'll shoot for getting one out by the end
of the month, and it will end up in Fedora 23 which will be released by then.

But whatever debian/ubuntu version you are using with 0.9.5... that version is
quite old, so you probably aren't on their latest distro release, maybe one of
the LTS versions. If you want latest and greatest packages you should update
to the latest version of your distro too
