Its that time of the year again. I was just thinking about the new ubuntu release this weekend. I'm looking to tag both SoapySDR and Pothos releases (and a bunch of modules). And I thought it would be nice to do that first rather than upload the current release and do it all over again. Theres also gr-osmosdr updates and Limesuite features to get out.
@csete How do you feel about starting to go after this w/ me? I was thinking about the following:
1) upload any dependencies like misc sdr drivers
2) upload soapysdr and modules to 0.6 ABI
3) tag and upload limesuite as well
4) backport gnuradio/rebuild gr-osmosdr
Any idea which packages we need for 1) on this latest release to stay up to date? After that I can probably take care of 2) and 3) by this weekend. And we should be able to split up 4) and some other gr-packages at that point.
Looks like current releases are 17.04, 16.04 (LTS), and 14.04 (LTS). 16.10 is nearly EOL and not worth updating IMHO. I was also thinking about not updating 14.04 (LTS) trusty since we already have the newer LTS 16.04. One recent LTS ubuntu is probably good enough for most people. Interested to hear any thoughts on that though.
