New Linux binaries

It has been too much of a hassle to build packages and maintain my Ubuntu package repository, but I still want to supply binaries for users of different Linux distros. To that end I have replaced apt.gottcode.org with a personal package archive for Ubuntu packages as well as using the openSUSE build service to create packages for Fedora, Mandriva, and openSUSE.

I’m sorry for the inconvenience this will cause those who had used apt.gottcode.org, but I think that this will be a better solution in the long run.

    Wow! fantastic FocusWriter release. Just testing but seems to work very well. Timers and other new features are -very- welcome.
    Nice move to Launchpad.
    Thanks a lot.

    As far as I know, PPAs are generally considered better and more convenient than any other install method, by pretty much all Ubuntu users.

    Means that we can forget about updates and let the system handle it all; I was super happy to add your PPA.

    FocusWriter is, by the way, flippin’ excellent.
