Well, besides the slightly upgrade upstream version I was linking to
there seem to be no upstream upgrades any more.  I can't say whether it
is "officially" orphaned in Debian but there were no uploads for the
last couple of years.  I would only spent my time into upgrading the
package if there are people who confirm that it is useful.  According
to the popcon stats at


there is some use even if the number is not amazing.

So are there any users of drawmap lurking on the list???

Kind regards
