FW: [hatari-devel] Hatari in Ubuntu's repository out-of-date

Hi All,

At the beginning sorry for 'stupid' question, I'm Ubuntu's newbie. 
I've tried to install latest 1.6.x Hatari (Atari ST/TT/Falcon emulator), unfortunately in Ubuntu Software Centre is out-of-dated version 1.5.x. I know that I can install it manually (e.g. from source-code) but I think that would be cool to have up-to-date version in Ubuntu Software Centre.

Could you please point me out how to do that? To whom should I write?

Many thanks

Best Regards
Cyprian Konador

Teemu is the *Debian* Hatari package maintainer ("Original maintainer"
in Ubuntu terms). "Ubuntu Developers" group is the package maintainer on Ubuntu.

I would assume that you can install the v1.6.1 Debian package to Ubuntu:

I have no idea why "Ubuntu Developers" group hasn't uploaded newer version of Hatari from Debian.

(Ubuntu gets most of its packages fairly directly from Debian so I don't think there that much effort involved.)
