evolution 3.18 not in 15.10

Asked by Javier Antonio Nisa Avila on 2015-10-15

Why notWhy is frozen in version 3.16.5 when it is as stable 3.18.1. The changes between the two versions are many. We are far behind. Is there any solution to have a more updated version but I continue to update the ubuntu channel. Or I have to wait for the 16.04 ??

Thank you.

I suggest you report a bug.

Wily is still not stable and not ready.

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.

I put it as a bug, but nobody answers me, I think a more advanced and stable version is required to adopt ubuntu. It is tested to spare the community and solves many of the more than 400 existing errors. Please acualicen to 3.18.1

You have to understand the Ubuntu release policy.

Ubuntu is no rolling release, and packages normally are not upgraded to higher versions when an Ubuntu release has been published. Only the next Ubuntu release might include the updated package. Furthermore Ubuntu is taking over several packages from Debian to avoid duplication of the packaging work.

see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WilyWerewolf/ReleaseSchedule for the timing of Ubuntu Wily, especially with respect to the freeze dates.

You will find most of the packages in Ubuntu Wily in the version that was the current one in Debian stable (eventually Debian unstable or testing) in August 2015.
As far as I can see, Debian does not have 3.18.1 in any of its versions yet.

Okay, you're right; according to schedule that was the last stable release on 20 August 3.16.5 - the first stable version 3.18.0 was following the 21 September.

So as I understand it; that version 3.18 or higher will be updated to the 16.04 ??

There are good chances to have evolution 3.18.* (or higher) in Ubuntu 16.04
(As long as Ubuntu 15.10 hasn't been published, you should not expect to get any information about the planning of its successor.)

Thank you, speak in a few months.

Thanks Manfred Hampl, that solved my question.
