K-3D 0.7 for Ubuntu

Hi
I want to install the latest version from the Ubuntu repo but I see that the latest version that is available from Ubuntu is 0.6.7. Is there a plan to provide v 0.7 in the repo ?
thanks

K-3D 0.7 for Ubuntu

We don't create releases for the various Linux distributions, the distros manage that themselves. Ubuntu is waiting for the 0.8 release, hopefully we will get it out in time for them to make their next release. So your best bet in the near term is to build K-3D on Ubuntu yourself, which is straightforward - several of our regular contributors develop on Ubuntu.
Cheers,
Tim

Hmm, it looks like 0.8 has not made into Ubuntu repo.

Yeah, we didn't make the deadline for Ubuntu 10.4. One of the K-3D developers - Bart Janssens - is going to look at creating a PPA distribution, so Debian / Ubuntu users can keep more up-to-date. We're also switching to a 6-month release schedule for K-3D, so you should be getting more regular releases, even if Ubuntu lags behind.
Cheers,
Tim

Timothy,
Thanks for the follow up. If we can get regular updates on Ubuntu and Debian that would be great. This way we can keep very close eye on the latest updates.
thanks
