On Linux Ubuntu

Hi there,
how come the repositories version is still at 22.12.21? who needs to put the new version?

It is the not the developers of shotcut, who maintain the packages in different linux distributions.

The developer make flatpak, snaps, appimage and portable tar for linux, so the snap package is properly the easiest choice for Ubuntu.

It is hard to make distribution packages for shotcut, because it use a lot depencies that need to match the versions shotcut uses and that often conflict with the version there exist in the distributions repositories.

For Linux, I recommend using the portable package from the official download page. This is the package that we can support. There is no one on this forum who can support the packages for all the various Linux distributions.

Do you mean “Linux portable tar” or “Linux AppImage”? Which of the two automatically updates with each new version?
