Help getting to latest version of Evolution


Good evening, all. I am a relative newcomer to Linux. Using Mint 18.2 Sonya with the Cinammon 3.4.4 desktop environment. I have Evolution v3.18.5.2 installed as my messaging client, and would like to upgrade to the latest stable version, v3.26.x according to the Gnome web site.

However, the current stable release doesn't exist in Mint's repo (I already have the latest version in the repo), and can't find instructions on how to upgrade to the newest stable release. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

On the other hand, if anyone is aware of a more robust, full-featured messaging client, I'm not opposed to changing clients either. I am looking for something I can use to access my Gmail accounts, store or sync my contacts, and sync my calendar (all in Gmail).

Thank you.

Sorry. Don't know the answer to your upgrade question, but:
Thunderbird.
I use it to pop and imap, has a built-in calendar I use with Google Cal.

If you have to ask, you probably shouldn't do it (or be prepared for a lot of breakage). However, as one who routinely ignores his own advice, I sugest checking out this site (look under Ubuntu 18.04). No guarantee that this won't require other packages that will totally bork your Linux Mint installation; for those you might need to go to the Ubuntu 18.04 repositories.

Sean, where did you get your calendar from? I installed Thunderbird came installed with Mint, but the version I have doesn't have a calendar. Did you download and install an add-in to get calendar functionality?

Thanks.

My bad. Yes, I'm using the Lightning add-on and the Provider for Google Calendar add-on.
