Ubuntu packaging: still v18.10 (Cosmic) ?

The latest version of Ubuntu mentioned on the download page is Cosmic (18.10). This version was released two years ago. That's not terribly old, but since then we've had Disco (19.04), Eoan (19.10), and Focal (20.04 LTS). I'm assuming the Cosmic package works without issue on Focal? If so, if making a new package is unnecessary at this time, someone may want to update the text on the downloads page to make it clear which package is the newest, since the Ubuntu version numbers aren't present and Ubuntu doesn't clearly display the codenames on their site or in the GUI.

That's right.


Explanation: this project needs more volunteers.

I see. Well, Ubuntu 20.10 "Groovy Gorilla" is now out, by the way. I'd edit the Downloads page text myself but I don't see a way to do that.


Also, when I click "Set as solved", I get a message saying "Now allowed". Given that the thread is not marked as Solved, I believe this is supposed to say "not allowed".

Well, not exactly - deb package PlayOnLinux v4.3.4, downloaded from site or Cosmic repo, depends on "python" package, that is not available anymore for Ubuntu 20.04.

Fortunately, PlayOnLinux 4.3.4 is available now in official "multiverse" Ubuntu 20.04 repo, and can be installed right from there.
