Will Ubuntu include binary packages for OCC 6.5?


Current Ubuntu includes binary packages for Opencascade6.3. Will Opencascade support Opencascade6.5 on Ubuntu?

Thank you for any info. on this.

Hello Jane,
Ubuntu is not supported by OCCT (See paragraph "Supported Platforms and Pre-requisites" of "Release Notes" http://www.opencascade.com/pub/doc/Release_Notes_6.5.pdf).
This question is rather to be addressed to Ubuntu team.

The Ubuntu Opencascade package was automatically made from the Debian package. As Debian now has Opencascade 6.5 package, it will soon come to Ubuntu *Natty*. You have to ask ubuntu people, what is the policy of the Debian to Ubuntu automatic package migration, to know exactly when it will happen.

I was wrong. It was too late for Ubuntu Natty packages to be built. Opencascade 6.5 will be Oneiric (http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/oneiric/opencascade).
