Delay between hackage upload and cabal-install seeing package

I've uploaded Takusen-0.8.5 to hackage, and it's visible at

but "cabal install Takusen" still tries to get 0.8.4. Is there a
separate database/file for cabal install which is rebuilt
periodically, and it so, how often? i.e. how long is the delay between
upload and being able to test cabal-install?
