Ardour updates on Ubuntu
i've got an Ubuntu Studio install (8.04, Hardy Heron), and recently checked to see that it came with Ardour 2.3. i'd like to update to the latest version (2.7 as of now) but it would be annoying if i had to compile and install it every time there was a patched release. is there a repository i could add to the list in Synaptic Package Manager such that updates would happen automatically?
i noticed Ardour have a project page on Launchpad https://launchpad.net/ardour
i'm a bit of a linux noob, and i think it would make things quite a bit easier.
i'd rather stick with free software than resort to using Windoze or Mac.
