I’ve created a few PPAs (Personal Package Archive) on launchpad.net to make Ubuntu users easy to install some applications which are either not yet available in the Ubuntu repositories or the Ubuntu repositories only provide an old version.
So far, following apps are available in my PPAs:
Cantata MPD Client: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntuhandbook1/+archive/cantata, easy to install the most recent build of Cantata MPD client. Supports Ubuntu 13.04 (stuck at v1.2.2), Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 14.04.
