Final version in xenial of redmine?

Asked by hkais on 2016-01-06

I am wondering and searching if redmine will get upgraded to the latest version in the xenial release?
Since the current planned version of redmine is in the version of the year 2014 and would be a bit outdated if it is forcing ubuntu LTS user to stick for at least two more years on the "aged" version of redmine?

Is there any why how I could help to get the latest redmine version integrated into xenial?

I suggest you report a bug. If the bug and security fixes are significant in the new version, then the package will be updated.

@actionparsnip it is not about security updates. It is about current versions in the current distribution.

trusty/14.04 LTS has 2.4.2 redmine integrated (from the year 2012/2013)
xenial/16.04 LTS has right now planned 3.0 redmine (

The current release of redmine is: 3.2.0 (
so xenial will start already with two versions behind the current release (as of january)

Therefore I am asking if there is any plan to get a newer version of redmine into the ubuntu, and if how can I support it?

if there are no real gains to the new version then it will not be updated. Ubuntu is rarely bang up to date (especially in LTS releases) so the fact that there was a release in January is moot. If the gains are slim then it will be left and packages with issues / have EOL versions and so forth are targeted. Ubuntu is not a rolling release and stability is champion over getting the latest packages into the distribution.

Can you help with this problem?
