7.8.2 is a bit on the old side, but there's a 7.8.7~dfsg.1 build
available in Sid (which is installable in a Wheezy environment, and
supposed to work - Jan 11 was just too late to get it included into
the yet [deep] frozen release).

For those living on the bleeding edge, and to speed up getting "stable"
into production:
What about building (ht)condor packages for the next stable a.k.a. testing
distro, in development at least?
I'd be very happy to test the latest 7.9.x(+) in a wheezy and/or jessie
environment even at a very early stage - this would eventually save the
"another 8 months" (although at the moment it feels like winter is already
here) until a Condor version for Debian Stable becomes available.
What does the Condor Team think about that?

Better a clipped port than none at all.

What's a bit confusing at the moment is the two version numbering schemes -
the deb package in the official repo (due to the "~") _always_ has a lower
version than the one in UWisc's repo. (The longer I think about it:
this might be fully intentional, indeed...)
