The versions in debian bullseye/stable and above are all 1.5.0, the most 
recent CRAN package is 1.7.1.  For my purposes I can just use the 1.7.1 
CRAN version.  I might file a bug against the debian r-cran-shiny package, 
but I assume the maintainer will update it in due course anyway...

Thanks a lot!
