You might want to take a look at the third post in this thread:http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 0&t=129719
Backporting the newest Freecad to our community repo looked like a lot of work, since it needs a lot of upgraded or wholly new libraries. I'll see if any of the others have newer versions upstream and if they will backport.
Edit: Librecad 1.0.1 is in Squeeze-backports already, and we apparently have the build-depends in M11 for the 2.0 beta in Experimental, so I'll try that one first.
Later: M11 packages are here. http://ubuntuone.com/6VFY5yrMqy4YrtSbmGZhZz
The -data deb installs first, then the program deb for your architecture. I'll also send it up to the CR.
