Kubuntu CI: the replacement for Project Neon

Many years ago Ubuntu had a plan for Grumpy Groundhog, a version of Ubuntu which was made from daily packages of free software development versions. This never happened but Kubuntu has long provided Project Neon (and later Project Neon 5) which used launchpad to build all of KDE Software Compilation and make weekly installable images. This is great for developers who want to check their software works in a final distribution or want to develop against the latest libraries without having to compile them, but it didn't help us packagers much because the packaging was monolithic and unrelated to the packages we use in Kubuntu real.

FFmpeg Is Returning To Ubuntu With 15.04 Release

While FFmpeg has been absent from recent releases of Ubuntu Linux due to the switch over to Libav, with Ubuntu 15.04 it will return. FFmpeg is back to being packaged inside Ubuntu 15.04 and version 2.4.3 is found within the Ubuntu Vivid universe archive as of yesterday. Libav forked from FFmpeg back in 2011. Libav was favored by the Debian multimedia team but there's been work for bringing FFmpeg back to Debian. FFmpeg/Libav are widely used audio/video codec libraries. The FFmpeg details inside Ubuntu can be found via Launchpad. Read more
