What is latest Version That will run on Linux Mint?

The OpenCPN.org website seems to indicate that version 4.6.1 is also available for Linux platforms. Is this the case?

I was running OpenCPN 4.6.1 on Windows 7, but have now set up a laptop with Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 32Bit, Cinnamon v2.8.8, Linux Kernel 3.13-0-24-generic. Installing the software from the PPA has only resulted in OpenCPN version 4.0.0. Is that the latest version I can expect to find? Is there somewhere I should be looking for a later version?

Also where can I locate a list of known bugs/limitations for the latest Linux version?

Re: What is latest Version That will run on Linux Mint?

Linux Mint 17.3 is based on Ubuntu Trusty aka version 14.04.
This version is very well supported by OpenCPN. Generally Linux is well supported as many developers actually are using Linux for their development.
I have never used Mint and don't know the particulars, but check that you are using the right PPA for your version. I would be surprised id you can't get at least 4.6.1 installed.

As for all operating systems the place to check would be the OpenCPN bugtracker https://www.opencpn.org/flyspray/
