Update request: ghostwriter version 1.6.2

#1 Post by nanoSYS » Fri May 11, 2018 6:00 am

Would it be possible to update ghostwriter to version 1.6.2 (Apr 15, 2018)?
Current version in repo is 1.5.0 released on May 13, 2017.

"ghostwriter is a Windows and Linux text editor for Markdown, which is a plain text markup format"

Must have missed the original post. Will check it out today--looks pretty straightforward based on what's in their PPA.

No problem with MX 17 builds, but apparently it now requires a newer version of Qt 5 than the 5.3 that MX 15/16 has. Sending to MX 17 test repo now.
