I'm seeing 0.99.1-1.el6 of the various (x86_64) bits in epel-testing,
so you could get it from there and update to the fully tested version
when it is released.

In general I think it is most important to keep your signatures
current. I don't get the sense that the changes between
[sub-]point-releases are earth shattering (despite the ominous
warning that you will see in your logs).
