        Hello there,
        Any improvements made in providing ability for Ubuntu users to upgrade 
        later versions? I'm still stuck in--

        Kexi Version 2.8.5
        I am sorry that ubuntu offers no such support for free software.
        Upgrading the OS can be an option.
        Or requesting support from ubuntu or someone who can develop a backport.
        This can be requested on an ubuntu forum.
        A modern way of distributing software may help us soon:


        Looks wonderful-- I am really looking forward to the day when
        I'll be able to upgrade kexi versions. The version I have
        right now is so dysfunctional. Any time the mouse crosses
        from the left side of the screen into the left side of the
        table, it makes the table jump to the top. This is endlessly
        frustrating and a huge waste of time. Say I am working in row
        #750, the mouse moves across the left border of the table and
        all of a sudden the table jumps to row#1. If there is any fix
        for this, please advise.

    ​ All this was long ago fixed.​
    ​ My advice is to upgrade the OS or install​ another copy in a
    virtual machine or different computer. Regardless of availability
    of the Snap packages, staying with outdated software on LTS
    platforms will be always a compromise. It's not a problem for
    apps that do not evolve much anymore but Kexi is actively
    developed and users are hungry for features :)

    We'll be looking for a way when practically every week new
    updates appear for Kexi.

    There are so many software packages which update regularly every
    week with the Ubuntu update manager-- it happens automatically. If
    Kexi could be incorporated into this feature, it would be great.

OK. Do you mean official packages from Canonical or do you have unofficial repositories added?

    As for upgrading the OS, the Final Version of the new Ubuntu LTS
    16.04 is coming out on April 21. My current LTS 14.04 is in all
    other regards functioning wonderfully, and I would have no other
    reason to upgrade given my own specific usage patterns and needs.
    Upgrading would only be done for getting an updated Kexi, and for
    me upgrading Ubuntu on a MacBook Pro is not a small job. So this
    being the case, let me just ask the following questions:

I can't see updates for even new Ubuntu on this web page, 2.9.7 is too old:

Does this mean that 16.04 is going to install an old version of kexi?

Or are you saying you don't know what version of Kexi it will install?

​ There's contact email kubuntu-de...@lists.ubuntu.com <mailto:kubuntu-de...@lists.ubuntu.com> to the developers where yo ucan ask for help.

​ But have you tried this advice?

Now this is very exciting indeed. I will definitely try this-- right now.

Do I need to first uninstall my existing version of Kexi? And if so, is it ok to use the Ubuntu software manager to do the *uninstall *?

Or can I leave the current install in place and install 2.9.11 alongside it?

    1. By upgrading to 16.04 LTS, will I get the latest finalized
    version of Kexi? Or if not, which version of Kexi will be included
    in Ubuntu 16.04?
    ​ ​

    2. Will the version of Kexi which is included have the following

    -Ability to add rows to the middle of a table which is already in
    -Ability to add columns to the middle of a table which is already
    in existence
    -Ability to change the name of a column in an existing table.
    (Currently this requires going into the data view, with the
    warning that making any changes will wipe out all the data in the
    -Ability to move existing rows/columns in a table which is already
    in existence

Have these features not yet been developed then?
