I am trying to install the latest Bluefish 2.2.0 in 11.10 but all I find is the repositories for the older versions of Ubuntu. Is there any place to find the a PPA or deb package for 11.10.

I know your question has already been answered, but if you want, for quick reference, these are the commands to install the latest version of Bluefish (using Terminal):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:klaus-vormweg/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bluefish

The klaus-vormweg PPA is no longer resolving, so to get the newest version, I had to add flatpaks to Software Center:

sudo apt install flatpak gnome-software-plugin-flatpak gnome-software  
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo  

Then restart your computer, log in, and search for Bluefish in the Software Center and install the flatpak version (see arrow below):

At this time of this writing, the flatpak was on version 2.2.12, and the Ubuntu Bionic Universe repo was on version 2.2.10.
