ochosi has set up this ubuntu ppa which tracks git master. Note that it contains some small changes from my branch, in particular the default layout and icons.

You are strongly encouraged to backup your music collection if you edit tags in m4a files, as it has not been widely tested yet.
Layouts settings (such as window/panel/column sizes, displayed columns, ...) from previous versions (v1.0.x or v1.1.1) will be wiped, due to a redesign of the widget option system.
