RawTherapee 5.3 is the latest version.

Today someone asked this question in IRC:

> Hello, I am running Mint 18.3 and would like to know how I can upgrade Rawtherapee to the lates
version through my package manager ? I currently run 4.2.0.

I do hope RawTherapee 4.2.0 (from October 2014) is not the latest version shipped by Mint 18.3 (from November 2017). If it is, please update.

The latest version of RawTherapee to support GTK2 was 5.0-rc1. All subsequent versions require GTK+ >=3.16.

Hi, 4.2 is provided by the Ubuntu package base for Xenial (16.04) - I can't speak to why that would be or what may have held it back at the time, but it looks as though the upcoming new LTS (18.04, which will be Mint 19's new package base) will have 5.3 - https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rawtherapee.

This, unfortunately, happens from time to time, as a consequence of using a long-term-support base.

If the latest Linux Mint provides RawTherapee 5.4, then please close this, else do something about it.
