The situation will probably change in at least the next couple of weeks 
if not sooner. FLTK1.3 is in Debian unstable now, and a development 
snapshot of Dillo 3.0 is in experimental. Final release of 3.0 is 
supposed to be out sometime by the end this month. Soon after it'll 
probably make its way into Debian unstable, though it'll be too late to 
be included in Ubuntu Oneric. I would expect that it'll be available in 
a ppa not long after its final release.
