1.9.0 is officially released and I've been using this for the past hour without any problems.

Having said that, feel free to blame me for any issues.

This AUR version of Atom works! Thanks!

Currently, the ATOM FROM COMMUNITY REPOSITORY v.1.10.2-4 is not working: there are problems visualizing the text in the editor (text not visible) and dialog windows don't appear when recalled from the main menu (I'm in Arch and Manjaro KDE).
Reading around, it seems that the cause is related to electron / freetype incompatibility. It's strange that the guys involved into the official community repository are not aware of this.

Anyway, your AUR version of Atom works, so why don't you propose it for the Community repository?
Thanks. /Saverio

Please add "atom" package (Community repository) to the "Conflicts", and maybe "apm" as well. When trying to install "atom-editor-bin" I got the following error:

atom-editor-bin: /usr/bin/apm exists in filesystem
atom-editor-bin: /usr/bin/atom exists in filesystem
atom-editor-bin: /usr/share/applications/atom.desktop exists in filesystem

As this binary includes Google Analytics which is proprietary, should the license of the package be kept to MIT?

Updated to 1.9.6.

Six point releases in five days. Wow, the Atom team are pretty busy! I'll be checking on this package more often.

Atom 1.9 has been released, hopefully this package can now be resurrected.

@all atom@1.9.0-beta0 updated electron which is compatible with the current freetype2 package. So the next update will be atom@1.9.0 as soon as github tags it as stable. If you want to try it now, I suggest using https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/atom-editor-beta-bin/ which I use on a day to day basis without any problems.

@xavier83 just tried that, actually it's pretty easy, just change the source and remove the first line in the build function. It's still segfaulting though... :(

@despairblue What about @forivall's suggession to use fedora package instead?
It would be a lot of work, I guess?

@hypnoglow: atom-editor-bin is old because the newer packages are incompatible with arch because they are linked against an old fontconfig version. It seems that 1.9 will be compatible with arch again and that is when the bin package will be updated again.
