The python-pygame package contains version 1.9.1release, but I need features from 1.9.2. Is there a PPA available for the latest pygame release?

Thanks in advance!

Probably not, so I recommend just downloading the source for now and wait for this version to hit the repos. It wouldn't really make sense to create a PPA for this, since it will be in the actual repos in just a couple of months.

Download the source here at its new bitbucket home. Some instructions are also available on the wiki for compiling and installing pygame.

Still isn't as of Nov 2015. – Timtro Nov 25 '15 at 17:59
