We have released zorp-0.7.9, here's the NEWS entry:

zorp 0.7.9

        * new protocol proxy: finger
        * new option: --version, displays version and compilation info
          (try: zorpctl version)
        * POSIX 1003.1e capabilities support, Zorp drops all capabilities,
          and enables them only when needed. (for now only
          CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE (for binding low numbered ports) and
          CAP_NET_ADMIN (for transparent proxying) is used)
        * HTTP: implemented CONNECT method, needed to use HTTP in 
          nontransparent mode with https urls.
        * proxies written in python actually work, an example:
          doc/examples/python_proxy.py was added which implements
          a finger proxy (alternative to the one implemented in Zorp)
        * new flexible Zone class, backported from the 0.9 branch. Changes
          policy interface.
        * updated documentation and examples to reflect changes in
          policy interface
        * moving towards the new logging mechanism (look at --log-spec and
          --log-tags in zorp(8))
        * and as always: bugfixes

Debian package building is currently broken at the moment. It'll be fixed
in the next release.
