Updating Geany on Ubuntu, using PPA (Personal Package Archive)

Since Ubuntu's version of Geany is 0.19, I ppdated Geany to 0.20 using PPA (Personal Package Archive).

1. Sources.
Geany Home Page: http://www.geany.org
PPA for Geany Developers: https://launchpad.net/~geany-dev/+archive/ppa

2. Add Geany PPA (ppa:geany-dev/ppa) to my Ubuntu.
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:geany-dev/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update

3. Install Geany
$ sudo apt-get install geany

4. Confirm.
$ geany --version
geany 0.20
