On Ubuntu 16.04, I installed gitg using apt-get. Running
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install gitg
tells me that:
gitg is already the newest version (3.17.1-1).
However, https://git.gnome.org/browse/gitg shows the latest version to be 3.26.
The installation instructions are straightfoward enough.
Can I install 3.26 directly, bypassing
apt, without breaking anything? Are there any consequences down the line in doing so?
