I've RC1 packages for amd64 and i386 for both intrepid and jaunty in our
archive. It looks like the archive generation software is having a fit
producing proper control files. I've just tried re-updating them, so please
reload your package database and see if the new package version
1.3.5.dfsg~svn20090518rc1-1 shows up.



If it doesn't work you could manually install the deb from direct links:
