The ntp-stable branch last saw a release in 2011. If there are no objections, I'll switch our ntp package to the ntp-dev branch, where all development effort (new features, bug fixes) has happened since.
I felt we had reached a good enough consensus after those three months without any objection, so I have pushed this update to [testing].
There has been a few good feature changes upstream (such as ntpdc being deprecated in favor of ntpq) but their impact is minimal to the average user so I do not believe an announcement is warranted.
