I've read a few posts from people frustrated at the problems with installing LibreCAD 2.2, so here's me as a non-programmer who hasn't learnt how to package software trying to do something about that problem.
Updating an Ubuntu PPA is an obvious way to get LibreCAD updates out to users. The 2.2 branch is getting updates so there are still plans for a release
I have sent the following email to Scott Howard https://launchpad.net/~librecad-devHi Scott
Sorry for writing to all your email addresses at once, I just wanted to make sure I got through. You have an Ubuntu PPA

Dion Moult has made a package of v2.2 for Gentoo but I'm not sure how long it takes for that to become available (is there really no way to tag people in this forum)
PS. If you're reading this and on windows then remember that you can install the windows build directly from github: https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD/releases
