The current stable distribution (Debian Etch) ships with OMPI 1.1. It
has serveral known bugs and is that old due to inactivity of the former

The version in "unstable" is 1.2.3, and we expect it to move it to
"testing" soon. You can see the status on

6 packages are build from the source. Users can simply do "apt-get
install openmpi-bin" to install it.
