That is because I am preparing roughly 2 major updates per year,
preferably shortly after a FreeBSD release. The other changes to the
port are to maintain compatibility and fix whatever problems users may

To pre-empt the inevitable question: Yes, there will be a new version
before the end of October.
Do you miss a specific feature in the current port or why do you press
for an update?

Best regards
