I found this
Yeah, 0.98 is packaged, just not uploaded. There's not much point in
uploading it now, at freeze time.

Since Squeeze goes stable today/tomorrow depending on your time zone, if it is in unstable or experimental it may be moving up relatively soon. I will see if I can find it in experimental and report back.

Another option would be compiling from source: http://cdimage.debian.org/mirror/gnome. ... rine/0.98/

Checking at the debian package search site: http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_packages
I see that Sid (unstable) had murrine 0.90.3-2 in alpha in the i386 and amd64 architectures
In experimental there is 0.98.1.1-1: alpha for the same two architectures.

There is no testing repository at the moment, Squeeze just went stable and no packages have graduated into testing yet.

I'm running LMDE64, but using sid repositories (I'm impatient, testing takes too long).

My work-around was to download gtk2-engines-murrine_0.98.1.1-2_amd64.deb from the packages.debian.org website and install it manually. Once I installed the gtk2-engines package, murrine-themes updated normally through apt/synaptic. I'm guessing this shouldn't break any functionality for future mint-artwork-debian updates (not sure how version specific the dependency is).

Not that it matters much as I'm not currently using a murrine theme, but nice to know I have the option to down the road.
