  • bat

    A cat(1) clone with wings.

    For instance, bat, an alternative to cat, is available in apt for Jammy at version 0.19.0, despite the github having a .deb for 0.21.0 and the Kinetic (22.10) repo also having 0.21.0. The .deb from github installed on my 22.04 system with zero issue.

  • yt-dlp

    Unofficial daily builds for yt-dlp. DO NOT OPEN PULL REQUESTS HERE (by ytdl-patched)

    It's even worse for yt-dlp. Jammy is stuck at 2022.04.08, and until a couple of days ago, the jammy-backport was stuck at 2022.05.18. This is despite the fact that a working .deb for the latest version (maintained by Unit 193 same as the others) exists on the kinetic (21.10) repo.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
