Ubuntu: Update gitg without apt-get? Will I break something?


On Ubuntu 16.04, I installed gitg using apt-get. Running

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install gitg  

tells me that:

gitg is already the newest version (3.17.1-1).  

However, https://git.gnome.org/browse/gitg shows the latest version to be 3.26.

The installation instructions are straightfoward enough.

Can I install 3.26 directly, bypassing apt, without breaking anything? Are there any consequences down the line in doing so?


The only thing that could happen is that there are missing dependencies for v3.26, other then that, remember to apt-get remove gitg before installing the higher version.

If something does go wrong, which I highly doubt will, you can always reinstall the previous version.
