As the title suggests I would like to confirm my assumptions and get a better understanding of the Ubuntu software repositories in terms of what is supported and getting updates. I will use GIMP as an example (but this question is NOT about GIMP) it’s a general question about repositories.
I know I can install GIMP from the USC and currently its version 6x
From another repository “add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp” I can install Gimp v8x
Are these assumptions correct?
- Both versions are supported
- Eventually v8 will be available in USC in the Ubuntu Repositories to install
- I may have future issues during updates using a PPA that is not in the USC.
