Sorry, I asked the wrong question. I just realised I was comparing
versions in a personal branch which I had updated locally in 2015 to 0.8.

The version in master was updated to 0.3 back in 2010 and the maintainer
at that time doesn't appear in the git log again since then (although
there have been some small script changes by admins since then). I'll
try emailing the maintainer about an update - if I hear nothing back in
a week or so (and no one objects), I'll take it over and update it.
