Re: [PLUG] Linux distributions without version upgrades

Have you tried the PPAs for some of those packages?

No. I was aware that some existed, though I never got around to coming up with a list. Thanks! I also would have sworn I looked for Liferea and didn't find it...
for LibreOffice on Lucid you have to remove OpenOffice packages

I have been using these (except liferea) with no issues. You get
security updates too. There are many other PPAs out there but these are
by the same packaging teams that handle the newer releases so I am
assuming these are safe.

That's a great list, I'll try them when I have a few moments...
