 Replying to [comment:9 wenzeslaus]:
 > How do I install it? I can't find .deb, PPA or instructions at the
 [http://www.pdal.io/download.html official website].

 Wait for the package to reach the mirrors, and then install it on a Debian
 unstable system with: `apt-get install pdal libpdal-dev`.

 The former gets you the `pdal` commandline application, the latter the
 headers, libraries & `pdal-config`.

 There is no PPA for Ubuntu, the package will be synced from Debian
 unstable into the Ubuntu release after xenial.

 The PDAL website doesn't mention the Debian package because it is new and
 part of the distribution and not a 3rd party repository.
