This repository publishes MRPT 2.x versions or, until the first stable 2.0.0 version is launched, MRPT 1.9.9 which is the 2.0 “pre-release” version.

PPA status.

Git branch: master (development, mrpt 2.0 branch) Older SEE/SSE2-only CPUs
Use this repository if the fully optimized packages raise SIGSEGV errors.
