The Debian maintainer (Hi Doug) hasn't gotten around to packaging it. But
as he righly pointed out to me in private, 1.2.3 hasn't changed that much 
from 1.2.2 on architectures other than the Mac. 

Note also that you can always build your own .deb from the tarball(s) on the
CRAN sites which is particularly helpful if you want to try the pre-releases.
I am running pre1.3.0 on one of my machines. Mail me if you need a hand
rolling your own .deb.

That being said, it would be nice if the apt-get'able archive was populated with
a new released version.   Maybe someone else at U Wisc could roll that?
