It's only 4 commits since 0.3.0, two of them being critical fixes. I could backport those two commits (just tried: no conflict); it feels needlessly pedantic however, compared to using "master" straight away.
I've contacted the developer, see if he replies within a few days. If not, I'll go ahead with the patches.
