[ccache] New release (with color) any time soon?

It's been an unusually long time since the last ccache release.
I've just upgraded to Ubuntu Utopic (beta) which ships gcc-4.9 with its
nice coloring support, and ccache-3.1.9 which is unable to leverage this
feature. Fedora 21 is about to ship these versions, too.
Coloring support has been in ccache git for almost a year now. I've just
simply compiled and installed it, overwriting Ubuntu's package, and it
works like a charm for me.
Distros are very likely to pick up new mainstream stable releases, but are
very unlikely to start cherrypicking from their git branch.
Could you please consider releasing a new stable ccache in the not too
distant future, like maybe in a month or two? It would be really cool if
the next release of distros (e.g. Ubuntu V V 15.04) shipped the coloring
feature out of the box.
Thanks a lot,
