2018.2.1 is now available for testing and release...

a. i use kubuntu 14.04.5 but newer versions are supported...

b. if you are looking for the newest available FG for *buntu, you'll want to use saiarcot895's PPA... they have packages for 14.04, 16.04, 17.10 and 18.04... there's also daily and prerelease groups available...

I'm not maintaining the prerelease PPA anymore, so only daily and stable PPAs are available.
