Rationale makes sense. Seeing that this request comes from the Kubuntu release team and the packages are seeded on Kubuntu only, I guess it makes sense to get it done ASAP. FFe approved.
** Description changed: New upstream release of Kstars (2.9.4) Blog post: http://knro.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/spring-season-kstars-v294-is-released.html Full changelog: https://cgit.kde.org/kstars.git/commit/?id=0ab4cf66373bde19e2a0ee6e2b128192371f3c91 - New upstream release of stars (1.7.1) + New upstream release of libindi (1.7.1) Changelog for 1.7.0 and 1.7.1: https://github.com/indilib/indi/releases Kstars is mostly a bugfix release, but does contain one 'feature'. From IRC: [10:43] <Jasem[m]> acheronuk: It's mostly performance + bug fixes really. Maybe using SEP in Guiding module is a new feature. [10:45] <acheronuk> Jasem[m]: Guiding module? is that enabled if not built with libindi? [10:45] <Jasem[m]> acheronuk: nope libindi must be there. Hardly anyone would use KStars without libindi We have for some time had too low a version of libindi in ubuntu to build kstars with support, and as you can see not doing so removes one of the largest benefits of kstars. So we would like to update kstars with new libindi together. Upstream developers recommend the latest bugfix 1.7.1 of libindi as the latest kstars is tested with this. The packages have been test built and can be found at: https://launchpad.net/~rikmills/+archive/ubuntu/kstarsffe ** Changed in: libindi (Ubuntu Bionic) Status: New => Triaged ** Changed in: kstars (Ubuntu Bionic) Status: New => Triaged -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1763448 Title: [FFe] Kstars 2.9.4 with libindi 1.7.1 for Bionic To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kstars/+bug/1763448/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
