Quantal repository published

The GetDeb.net repository for Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal is published.
The new Ubuntu version will be published next week and I am glad to say that the GetDeb.net repository is up in time.

New applications will now be published for Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 12.10 on GetDeb.net because Ubuntu 12.04 is a LTS release and Ubuntu 12.10 is the latest release.

Have fun with the new repository.

Notice that the following applications are not available in the repository:
Domotiga
http://www.getdeb.net/software/DomotiGa
Upstream authors are still working on porting the project to Gambas3.
Gambas2 which it still uses has now been removed from the official quantal repositories:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gambas2/+publishinghistory
The upstream progress can be seen here:

Flash for Linux
http://www.getdeb.net/software/Flash%20for%20Linux
The sources are from 2005 and it seems that the project is dead. It does not compile on Ubuntu 12.10 because it depends on QT3 which has been removed from the official repositories:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/qt-x11-free/+publishinghistory

Lince
http://www.getdeb.net/software/Lince
The application fails to compile on Ubuntu 12.10:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/lince/+bug/1064608
Just wait for upstream to fix this.

End of support for Ubuntu 10.04 and 11.10
After the release of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS it is now the only supported Ubuntu release because per policy always the latest Ubuntu release and the latest LTS release is supported which both now is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
No updates for Ubuntu 10.04 and 11.10 which were supported before are now release any longer.
