Package hamster-applet based off old source

The package `hamster-applet' [0] is based off the (very) old 2.91.3
release tagged in Nov 8 2010, though it seems to incorporate some more
recent code from (upto?) 2012 (git commit b9fec3e1).

The project has since advanced considerably, in particular there have
been 7 releases since the old 2.91.3.

Is there any reason why the package available in the Ubuntu repositories
has been kept back? Are there, perhaps, any incompatibilities/issues in
hamster's recent versions?
