I'm afraid there is no dependable pattern to when I'll get around to
upgrading PROJ/libgeotiff/GDAL/PostGIS to a new EPSG release.  You can
manually add them to your local epsg init file in the meantime.

I would hope to have issue a new release with up to date EPSG files
within 3 months, but no guarantees.
