Miro 2.5 Ubuntu packages coming soon!

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

The Miro 2.5 release had a couple of issues that affected users with large databases. We've been working on those issues and helping those people out for the last couple of days. This work culminated in a Miro 2.5.1 release.

Because I was working out issues with Miro 2.5 release and helping users work through issues (more on that in a future blog post), I haven't worked on the Ubuntu packaging yet. My current plan is to wait until Sunday (tomorrow) and do packages for Miro 2.5.1 skipping 2.5.

I apologize for not getting packages out sooner, but I:

  1. was busy fixing Miro 2.5 issues and helping users

  2. thought it'd be better to hold off until the Miro 2.5 issues were worked out

  3. discovered World of Warcraft

If for some reason I can't/don't push out packages on Sunday, I promise I will do them as soon as I can. I use Ubuntu, too, so this affects me as well as all of you.

If for some reason this isn't satisfactory and you want/need it sooner than I can provide, I encourage you to build your own Miro from source. There are instructions here.
