Could we get a 4.1.2 build?

Asked by Meowsus on 2018-04-05 has releases listed newer than what is in this PPA. Would you mind putting a newer build together?

Much appreciated.

What do you mean "this PPA"?

What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a


I can't find a PPA with any version of the package you named.

First of all, to answer your question, I'm running Artful.

~ $ lsb_release -a; uname -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 17.10
Release: 17.10
Codename: artful
Linux gigbib 4.13.0-37-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Wed Mar 7 14:13:23 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Secondly, I'm sorry for jumping to the conclusion that this project had a PPA already set up. The version currently offered through apt for Ubuntu is 3.5.1, whereas 4.1.2 is the most recent version. I was hoping that there would be a way to add an apt repository and point it to this PPA in order to download a more current build of the game easily.

Unfortunately not. You can report a bug. If the bug and security fixes are significant then the package will be updated.
Ubuntu is not a rolling release distribution and packages will be left if there is no real benefit from updating. Packages are often left in favour of stability.

Ah! Okay, thanks for helping me understand the purpose of this project a bit more.

I am encountering an error, so I'll link it here.

Thanks again!
