Is there a reason "dvd-slideshow" is fairly old in the Ubuntu repository?

It seems 0.8.0-1 is out (and there are .deb packages)

Description: tools to create dvd slideshow with menus
 dvd-slideshow This is the main script. It generates a DVD-compatible
MPEG2 video file with audio from a text file input listing of pictures
and effects.
 dvd-menu Creates a simple DVD menu with buttons that link to MPEG2
files generated with dvd-slideshow or ones that you have created
 gallery2slideshow Instead of a GUI to create slideshows, I already
have almost everything set up from my web page that uses the Gallery
program. I figured it wouldn't be that
 hard to just get a listing of all the images in a given album
(sub-albums not supported!) and to generate an appropriate input file
to dvd-slideshow.
 jigl2slideshow Does the same thing as gallery2slideshow, but works on
a jigl gallery
