@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.

@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.

@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?

So what about updating this package?

Since this package has a -bin suffix it is okay to just fetch any binary package that is available. Especially because the debian package seems to be incompatible a switch to the .rpm is rational.

note to self and other maintainers: should we try to switch to the fedora packages, since the problem right now is that arch has switched to a newer version of fontconfig / other font libs that is incompatible. and fedora tends to be more bleeding edge than ubuntu.

It is crashing :-(
