Need current version of Adafruit GFX, PIO keeps installing prior version

The PIO library registry reflects the current version of the library in the manifest (1.4.4) however not matter what I try I cannot get PIO to install this version. It insists on installing 1.4.3.

I need the fix included in 1.4.4 to continue my project. How can this be expedited into PIO?

E.g. when I deleted the library from my project and did a CLI install this is the output:
Looking for Adafruit GFX Library library in registry
Found: https://platformio.org/lib/show/13/Adafruit GFX Library
LibraryManager: Installing id=13
Downloading…
Unpacking [####################################] 100%
Adafruit GFX Library @ 1.4.3 has been successfully installed!

The commit has been made 17 hours ago and the crawler re-crawls the libs every 24 hours. In a few hours the new version will show up. In the meantime, specify lib_deps = https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-GFX-Library.git to instruct PIO to download the latest git version.

Thanks for the help! I have several situations where I can use this approach so it is very helpful. I had searched and not found this answer.

See further documentation on https://docs.platformio.org/en/latest/projectconf/section_env_library.html#lib-deps.
