The Debian package for byobu still points to version 5.112-1 from 2016-09-16 while there were several new versions released since then.

Is there any chance that the Debian package will get updated any time soon? And what would be the best way to get a more recent version installed in the meantime (if possible at all)?

Yes, indeed! I happen to be the author and maintainer of Byobu, and I've recently been approved as a Debian Maintainer, which enables me to upload to Debian now.

  • That's great news! Any comments on the 2nd part of the question, on what to do in the meantime? :)
