(Ubuntu) New packages of Pharo VM

Damien Cassou announced today 

Hi, I'm happy to announce a brand new packaging of the Pharo VM. The packaging works with all officially supported Ubuntu releases, both 32 and 64bits (see this list of Ubuntu support dates: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_%28operating_system%29#Releases). I pushed these new packages to a different PPA so I can test without impacting current users : https://launchpad.net/~pharo/+archive/unstable/+packages If you are using an old version of Ubuntu (e.g., Precise 12.04 or even Lucid 10.04), you should try with this new PPA. Please report problems by email to me directly. An advantage of this new packaging is that it should become much easier to create Ubuntu packages for your own Pharo projects. I will talk about that later as I try these new packaging mechanism on the Launcher, Pillar and Phratch projects.
