Latest Evo version

Tom
Hello to all the specialists out there :-)

please forgive me for prayer wheel-like repeating a question that might arise every six months here, but: I know, to get current with Evolution requires a current stack. From past experience I know, that I was quite happy with current GNOME.
The question that might annoy you: Which distro usually comes with the latest evolution version at the moment ?

Hopeful but ashamed
Thomas

I think Fedora usually has the most up-to-date versions of Gnome and
Evolution, the most quickly after they are released.

Followed closely by the latest Ubuntu.  There was an unfortunate
tendency for a while for Ubuntu to ship the latest Gnome but provide
the previous release of Evolution, but I think that is no longer the
case.

IIUC the above link shows that some distros at the moment provide a
distro release, with the latest version of Evolution, that doesn't
necessarily mean that they always stay close to upstream.

Roughly speaking there are two kind of distros, release model distros
and rolling release model distros.

I'm using Arch Linux. Debian Sid for example is kind of a rolling
release, but not always that close to upstream. Arch Linux is a real
rolling release, most of the times in complete sync with upstream.

However, the Arch Linux approach has got some pitfalls. Funny enough in
my experiences Arch usually is way more stable, than almost all other
distros, but OTOH Arch Linux is everything but user-friendly and apart
from this, it too, could become unstable.

What distro a user should chose depends on the skills of the user, the
use case and some other things to consider.

Fedora has a strong base of Gnome developers and hence gets the latest
Evolution quite quickly, due to its 6-month release cycle.

You might check out flatpak at https://flatpak.org/setup/. I run 3.36.1
of evolution on a Fedora 31 Silverblue (
https://silverblue.fedoraproject.org/). Thereby you are somewhat
independent of the base operating system GNOME version.

no problem with me at least.

You can certainly do that, but be aware that Flatpak version run in
their own sandbox and don't communicate with the rest of your desktop.

Why are you copying a previous reply with no additional comment? Adding
an icon to the Subject line does not count and may reduce the
