I’ve been installing Panda on a new computer, and have that while packages for recent versions of Ubuntu include the SDK, they don’t seem to include the runtime. As far as I can see, the most recent non-“dev” package that provides the runtime is for Ubuntu “precise”. However, hunting around archive.panda3d.org indicates that there do seem to be builds of the runtime for more recent versions of Ubuntu.
I daresay that the version made for “precise” is perfectly fine, but I’m still a little mystified as to why the more recent packages don’t provide these presumably-more-recent builds. Is there a problem with them? Has it just not been done yet? Something else?
