yes. the classic ui is shipped with the icinga-1.5.0.tar.gz while the 
new web using the new doctrine web api is shipped as a seperated tarball 
named icinga-web1-5.0.tar.gz

both tarballs provide a basic spec file for building your own rpms. 
official packages by their respective maintainers should hit upstream 
when they finalized the changes introduced in 1.5.0 and pushed new 
versions (i've changed a lot to make our packagers life easier - see 
CHANGES section https://wiki.icinga.org/display/Dev/Icinga+Core+Changelog)

IDOUtils provide the database backend required as data source for the 
new web. The classic ui still uses the native status.dat, objects.cache 
and log files as data source and can't make any use of IDOUtils backend.
