Unlike Xiphos 3.1, and unlike Bibledit 3.7, BibleTime 2.0 is not yet 
released :)

Only alpha, beta and (maybe?) release candidates of BT 2.0 have been 
released so far.  There are BT 2.0 beta2 packages in the 
developer-testing PPA, at


If you want to help us test those, that would be great -- just be aware 
that they are only intended for testing by developers, and are just test 
packages of a beta release of BT, not released software versions 
intended for end users.

Once the final BT 2.0 is released, and we have packaged it, those 
packages will appear in the main ~pkgcrosswire PPA.  Martin has posted 
the timeline for the BT 2.0 release to this list already, I think.
