Debian does not upgrade any packages in stable releases (e.g. jessie)
except for security relevant or really severe bugs. It definitely does
not update to newer major releases of anything.

The 1.8 packages are in Debian unstable and testing, and you can find
them here:
(and gst-plugins-base/good/bad/ugly1.0, etc).

It might make sense to get 1.8 into the Debian backports for jessie,
but I don't have the time for that currently.
