    Unity 6.8.0 on Ubuntu 13.04

    Hey guys!

    Why is Ubuntu 13.04 still using Unity 6.6.0 when Ubuntu 12.10 has Unity 6.8.0?(Or some other version) I created a USB with a persistent space on it. Installed all of the Ubuntu 13.04 updates, and it was still on Unity 6.6.0. Since Unity 6.8.0 was released all the way back in October it seems like we should have the latest Unity version. Anybody know why?

    To check the version of unity that I have I typed this into my terminal:
    Code:
    unity --version

    synaptic says the unity verson for raring is "6.12.0daily13.03.01-0ubuntu1", I think its reporting the wrong version with that command or something, maybe a bug?

    Are you sure your system is fully updated?

    13.04 is currently on Unity version 6.12.0.

    Maybe a bug, maybe just doesn't matter & no one changes it in CMakeLists.txt for each minor release
    #
    # Base bits
    #
    set (PROJECT_NAME "unity")
    set (UNITY_MAJOR 6)
    set (UNITY_MINOR 6)
    set (UNITY_MICRO 0)
    set (UNITY_VERSION "${UNITY_MAJOR}.${UNITY_MINOR}.${UNITY_MICRO}" )
    set (UNITY_API_VERSION "6.0")
