We added Debian packages for 1.6.4 to our repository. Sorry for the
delay. We are updating our infrastructure to have automatic package
builds in the future. Packages for BIRD 2.0 will likely be released
with the next release.

We plan to have some transition in packages to keep both 1.6 and 2.0 as
independent packages in repository without automatic update, similarly to
how grub->grub2 transition was done in Debian.
