Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Bikeshed is a collection of tools, packed together because they were not accepted by other projects. After the components get accepted to other projects, they will be removed from the bikeshed package.
The latest version available is Bikeshed 1.52, available by default on Ubuntu 14.10, which comes with small changes and contains updated packages.
