Libevent dependency Ubuntu 20.04

I’ve just installed Ubuntu Studio 20.04 (the same happens with Kubuntu 20.04). I can install the Seafile client without issues, but when I try to install Seadrive I get the following errors:

mike@corsair:~$ sudo apt install seadrive-gui

I see that this has been logged on GitHub: Please package for Ubuntu 20.04 #215

As we’re rebuilding our Linux client packaging infrastructure, it will take some time to make new packages available. We’ll release them when the work is done.

Thank you! How will I know when it’s been released? I’ve put Ubuntu 20.04 on hold… which is not really a great loss as I like to give new releases a few months to sort out their issues :grinning:

They should be ready in a few weeks.
