Upgrading to latest openSCAD on Kubuntu 17.04

cacb
Hi,

I am running Kubuntu 17.04 and the default version of OpenSCAD I get is
2015.03-2

Reading from http://www.openscad.org/downloads.html I get that the
latest release can be obtained via

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openscad/releases
$ sudo apt-get update

I was a bit too quick and did this before removing the installed
openscad, so I removed openscad, repeated the above and tried a

$ sudo apt-get install openscad

However, I still have 2015.03-2 after this.

Is there an easy way to get a newer version? A deb file would be
preferrable.

Carsten Arnholm

There are some Linux-specific instructions for how to obtain a development build here:
http://www.openscad.org/downloads.html#snapshots

Building from source may be preferable :)

Got it, thanks a lot.  I missed the part saying the package name was
openscad-nightly instead of just openscad, I must learn how to read.

Now I have 2017.05.03.nightly running just fine alongside 2015.03-2.
Yes, building from source is an option, but this works fine!

By the way, I recently published 'xcsg' (Xml based Constructive Solid
Geometry) to github.

https://github.com/arnholm/xcsg

The xcsg wiki on GitHub documents the xml protocol. On the "releases"
page there are pre-compiled binaries for Windows and Linux.

In short, the xcsg program takes an XML file, performs booleans and
writes STL etc.

Nice, thanks. Yes the different name is intentional to make
it possible having both the release version from the distribution
and the nightly snapshot.

I've updated the download page to include Ubuntu 17.04.

ciao,
  Torsten.

Yes, I noticed. Thanks for that.
