Yes it is scheduled. Moving from 1.6 to 1.8 is not immediate, because
the current package needs a deep analysis and rewriting, already done
for HDF4. Consider that we - as DebianGis - get the maintainership
of HDF5 library quite late and it is not a package for a faint of heart.
So, please stay tuned...
