For support issues, please go to the GitHub page at This PPA is for packaging only, so contact the maintainer only if your issue is clearly with packaging.

NOTE for Bionic users: since middle of May 2020, the desktop client code does not support Qt versions earlier than 5.12. Since Bionic includes Qt 5.11, builds are not produced for it anymore.

NOTE for Xenial users: because Xenial contains some outdated libraries, such as Qt5.5 and libssl 1.0, that the client code does not support anymore, as of early May 2020, the client is not build for Xenial.
