Haven't got any more time tonight to investigate, but I did

sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade

and when i boot linuxcnc on my exsisting config it doesn't show a new version. Do i have to do a new config to get use the latest? Or has my update failed. It downloaded about 900mb and installed a bunch of things. How can i verify qtplasmac has updated correctly?

Thank you
Sam

It is shown in the window header. v.1.221.174 is the latest version as of right now.

So there is no requirement to do a new config, launching my existing config should show the latest QTplasmaC on the top bar of linuxcnc window?

Okay, thank you, I will investigate why it is not updating properly.

Which repositories do I need?

I am fully up to date usingdeb deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib
deb-src deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib

but in linuxcnc i am still on v1.221.165

Is there a way to download the qtplasmac upgrade directly and integrate it?

Thanks
Sam

I can't speak intelligently to how often the new debian distribution stuff gets updated, etc. as it's all really new.

If you're on a linux distribution that supports it, maybe it's best to go back to the buster repositories?

I don't think there is any need to go back to buster. I have not tried this but you should be able to  simply install the source and build the debs from the latest source code. You should have most of the required dependencies on your system. I would follow the instructions here:
www.qtpyvcp.com/install/bullseye.html
And start where it says "Install the dependencies"
Build the debs and install over the top.

I will try this

Debian is soon to freeze their repo development pending the release of Bookworm Debian 12. I am assuming that this will be the trigger to roll forward to V2.9 being the release version so QTplasmac will be up to date. I just hope Phil and Greg pick a sensible point to stop the near daily updates to Qtplasmac leading up to this. It can't live in Development forever.

Actually scratch this. Its quite easy:
Note I did not install the docs as thats quite time consuming and we already have a slightly earlier versionof them on the system. If you want them remove the no-docs flag to ./configure
cd ~
mkdir /dev
cd dev
git clone https::/github.com/linuxcnc/linuxcnc.git
cd linuxcnc/debian
./configure uspace no-docs
cd ..
sudo apt install debhelper-compat dh-python autoconf gettext intltool libboost-python-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libgtk2.0-dev libmodbus-dev libeditreadline-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libxmu-dev python3-dev tcl8.6-dev tk8.6-dev yapps2
dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i linuxcnc-uspace_ (tab)

Optionally install the dev package for mesaflash, halcompile, ethercat etc.
sudo dpkg -i linuxcnc-uspace-dev(tab)

This moved my version of QTplasmac from 1.221.165 to 1.222.178
Note that opening an older sim version generates an error with a missing .so file for the torch simulation.
The solution is to create a new sim by selecting from the Sample Configurations

Master branch will be continually updated, it is the development branch after all.

Of course, but hopefully soon master branch will be 3.0 not 2.9
