Yes and this is unfortunate, it's 8 months old software, months of
work is not distributed on this OS.
Despite of the fact that Kexi 2.9.x are all fix releases, with no
feature updates (one minor was in SQL), and Ubuntu had to offer such
updates, it does not.

This is why we need one or another way to give users ultimate option
to stay with their OS of choice and use fresh Kexi apps.

I am not saying you would need this tool. Because it targets more than 
just Ubuntu, it may be better investment, maybe even better than using 
Snaps. I did not test anything like that with Kexi though. You can 
also: - build Kexi by hand on your computer - build Kexi and package 
it (and share with others?) - use the https://build.opensuse.org/ 
service to do the same - ask someone else to make a package Finding 
people that _regularly_ help with packaging Kexi will help the 
project. Things will improve, just now the focus is on development of 
the new shiny Kexi 3.

Hi
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.

Hi,

The site you are providing here is a generic tool. Are you saying that I 
would need to use this tool to make a version of Kexi that will run in 
Ubuntu?
