Hi Dag sorry for the late response,

Perfect, then, as Fabien suggested you can easily install the stable 
from PPA as indicated here:


Remember that first you must remove the Gambas already installed.

If one is willing and able a way to contribute can be found, perhaps not 
right away but later when one has become familiar with this fabulous 
language. :-)

  I like to play with Gambas, since very early,

Don't worry now almost everything works, examples from Farm and lessons 
from the German book, there are a couple of errors in Fabien's test*.

If you don't already know, you can download from here:


the folders containing both Gambas Master (development) and Stable (to 
unzip use 'extract here' from right-click).
Inside the folders is Benoit's Gambas code for the IDE and whoever 
created the components in Gambas (e.g., Fabien for gb.chart).
To see the IDE code, start Gambas and navigate like this from inside the 
unzipped folder:
gambas-master > app > src > gambas3
To see Fabien's code:
gambas-master > comp > src > gb.chart


as I told Dag there are a couple of glitches on the test (FTest) of the 
gb.chart component
MTools reports the error: "Not an object" on line 288 and Type. 
ColumnsLineCombination shows only the lines.
The rest works fine.
