There may be any number of reasons for this: 

* Maintainer is doing additional testing to make sure the update
  doesn't cause problems to the older stable release. 

* Maintainer may be waiting for some additional patches/fixes to land
  so the update can include all of them as well as that fix. 

* A new upstream release may be pending, and the maintainer may want to
  wait and push that. 

I'd suggest being polite and understanding and simply note that you are
still waiting for an update for an older release. There are sometimes
good reasons not to simply push the same change to all branches and
update them at the same time.
