> Shit, 0.59 is _seven years old_. It was superceded by two new releases at the end of 2014. I hope we can just let user's know they'll need to upgrade... Isn't the latest Ubuntu LTS our "officially supported platform"?

In general, you *shouldn't* expect users to require their OS to update everytime the newest version pops up just because it is inconvenient to you. Even for stable or LTS. There are valid reasons not to (e.g. no administrative rights on their machine or because people choose a stable OS because they *don't* want to update that often). There should always be a grace period and IMHO that should be until the official EOL of that OS release. For 16.04 that is 2021.

However, in specific I don't mind this minor inconvenience for our code beautifier...
