Hi @Mystic_Mirage, sorry for the late response - I've been on vacation for a few days.
Let me start by saying that I'm sad to see you go, I have no doubt you've been a huge help to many Ubuntu users over the years.
About the unity menubar: we have a PR open from you for the unity menubar patch which we are hopefully going to be integrating for Komodo 11. Thanks again for submitting this!
As for a Ubuntu specific build: I cannot currently commit to this but we are always mindful of new distribution options. Unfortunately with distributing to a new platform comes creating new builds, maintaining new builds and supporting new builds. There's a lot that goes into it that you aren't aware of as an end-user. I say this for the benefit of anyone reading this, because I'm sure @Mystic_Mirage knows exactly what I'm talking about after having maintained a Komodo edit build for a couple of years.
So in short, we may yet have official Komodo IDE and Edit builds for Ubuntu, but as of right now I cannot commit to this. That said any Ubuntu user can download our Linux distribution of Komodo IDE/Edit and have it running in minutes. This distribution is pre-compiled, all you do is extractit and run it. It's not as convenient as apt-get, but it should be sufficient for any existing users.
@Mystic_Mirage what happens to users that are currently using your distribution? Does apt give them some sort of heads up that a package isn't maintained anymore? Additionally, does Komodo's auto-update functionality continue to work in your distribution? I want to make sure these users don't end up stranded with the last version you maintained.
