Yes, bugzilla is the proper place to make such requests.  It would be
an enhancement request¹, often '[RFE] Update to foo-1.1' or a similar
summary.  Some maintainers already get notifications of new versions
automatically, so checking http://bugz.fedoraproject.org/<package>
would be good.

Also, depending on how large the change is in a new version or how
quickly upstream makes new releases, many maintainers choose not to
push every new version to released versions of Fedora.
