Launchpad PPA for QuTiP releases

Installing QuTiP on Ubuntu just got a lot easier. Using our new PPA on Launchpad, QuTiP and all its dependencies can now be installed using the following commands:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jrjohansson/qutip-releases
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install python-qutip
On a desktop/laptop system you'd probably also want to install the package texlive-latex-extra:
$ sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-extra
For subscribers of the qutip-release PPA, new releases of QuTiP will be automatically available through the Ubuntu update manager.
There is also a PPA called qutip-trunk, which provides access to daily builds of the latest development version of QuTiP.
