SDL 1.2.14 Update-Ubuntu Repositories, WHEN?

Hi,

Anyone know when new versions of:

  • SDL
  • SDL_image
  • SDL_ttf
  • SDL_mixer
    will be updated to Ubuntu repositories?
    (I mean the 1.2.x branches)

Thanks…

Jesse

You might want to take that up with the Ubuntu package maintainers, as
they are the ones for maintaining their binaries of the packages.

According to packages.ubuntu.com, SDL 1.2.14 is already in the "lucid"
distribution.On Sat, 2010-02-20 at 10:58 -0500, Jesse Palser wrote:

Very, very rare that Canonical updates its stable distributions.

They only update librarys or apps to a later version when it is easier
for them to fix security bugs with that, than patching the source itself.

Firefox is such an application that gets updated
to a newer version to fix security bugs, instead
of patching the source.
