Yes, that was the previous libmetadata-extractor-java update and the
associated API breakage. See the related discussion in the BTS:


libmetadata-extractor-java updates tend to requires changes in its
reverse dependencies: josm, gpsprune & tika. The latter is maintained by
the Java team like libmetadata-extractor-java itself.

Yes, I'd also like to get the experimental version into unstable. Just
beware that until JCS is packaged (#783538) no further updates to josm
are possible in Debian and derivatives.
