please restrict again to amd64/i386 for now. I hope I will get around
building the new version in time before the next freeze. The big
advantage of the newer versions 2.x + is support for GPUs. To support
that will be quite a lot of effort though. Given that we'll have to
build against the non-free nvidia stuff for GPU support, will this
require the package to move to non-free as well (at least the GPU variants)?
