How to install Julia programming language in linux/ubuntu

How to install Julia programming language in Ubuntu:

First make sure you have git installed:
sudo apt-get -f install git

git clone git://github.com/JuliaLang/julia.git
cd julia
make

I was missing gfortran and g++ so I had to install those to make the make command work:

sudo apt-get install gfortran g++
make

Now try:
./julia

It seems this installs the new (unstable) version of Julia. Any way to get the stable 0.1 version? (sorry, I'm a noob)

Stable 0.1.3 is in Ubuntu packages for Ubuntu 13.04 :

sudo apt-get install julia
