Your interpretation is correct; I took a git snapshoot a couple of weeks
ago to fix a handful of irritations. I've just uploaded a proper 2.80
package in its place, should flow through to testing next week.

However, it won't reach Ubuntu because they're in deep freeze now and a new
release is unlikely to make it into the archive. Ubuntu users should be
able to use the version from Debian without any changes, although I haven't
tested it (yet).
