how can i send a request update of some software in 12.04

Asked by ken brockman on 2012-05-03

Any chance of Ubuntu updating some of it's choices of software? Like Eric 5 IDE, or the newest Monkey Studio IDE? How's about the newest version of Qt or other Python related stuff? Sorry if I'm off topic and if my posting is inappropriate maybe you could direct me to the proper place to ask.

Ubuntu locks the versions of software used in each distribution. Due to this fact, you have three choices in regards to updating software:

1) File a request to have the software made available in the backport repositories
2) Add the associated PPA repository for the package to your source list
3) Build the package yourself from the source code.

Hope this help
