How to install Darktable 2.2.0 on Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10

darktable 2.2.0 released  when updating from the currently stable 2.0.x series, please bear in mind that your edits will be preserved during this process, but it will not be possible to downgrade from 2.2 to 2.0.x any more. Well over 2k commits since 2.0.0, 298 pull requests handled, 360+ issues closed

Darktable 2.2 Changelog:
  •     Add new automatic perspective correction module
  •     Liquify tool for all your fancy pixel moving
  •     A new image module to use a Color Look Up Table (CLUT) to change colors in the image
  •     In Highlight reconstruction module, the mode LCh reconstruction was completely rewritten, and is no longer useless!
  •     A new tool, darktable-chart, that goes along with the CLUT module, to create styles for the latter
  •     Exposure fusion in the basecurve module to lower the dynamic range of images
  •     Add new raw overexposure indication
  •     Darkroom: the preview (in top-left corner) is now no longer pre-demosaiced (but just downscaled without demosaicing it at the same time), thus the preview, color picker, histogram show the proper results, especially when there is highlight clipping.
Read the announcement for more details.
