As far as I know, the original espeak project has been abandoned. I have heard the original developer passed away, but I can not confirm that one way or the other.

The latest developments have been added under a fork of the project called Espeak-ng:  https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng

This new fork has a lot of improvements and pronounciation fixes.  i wonder if it shouldn't be the one in the official repos now.
