Binance don't version their binaries. They simply replace the binance-amd64-linux.deb with a newer version. This means you will correctly receive a validity check error as the deb file no longer matches with the SHA sum.

Please confirm the latest Binance version and then mark this package as out of date.

Unless Binance change their release strategy or someone can come up with a clever solution, it is what it is.

Binance has versioned binaries at (https://github.com/binance/desktop/releases). (Someone else already mentioned Oct 2021.) The checksums match the text files at (https://ftp.binance.com/electron-desktop/linux/production/binance-amd64-linux-deb-sha256.txt). So check() function can be removed.

If desired, can use a prepare() function to notify users whether a new version is available:

prepare() {
    binancechecksums=$(curl -Ssf "https://ftp.binance.com/electron-desktop/linux/production/binance-amd64-linux-deb-sha256.txt")
    if [[ "${sha256sums[0]}" != "$binancechecksums" ]] ; then
        echo "New version of binance is available:"
        echo "   https://github.com/binance/desktop/releases"
    fi
}

@neoney, thanks for bringing that to my attention! The releases seem a bit few and far between, there was 7 or 8 releases between the two they have on GitHub. I'll keep an eye on their github and see how it goes.

@metaanon I'm pretty sure they've started to release the versions on GitHub https://github.com/binance/desktop/releases

I guess we could change the PKGBUILD to have the URLs as https://github.com/binance/desktop/releases/download/v${pkgver}/binance-${pkgver}-amd64-linux.deb

That should solve the validity check error.

@metaanon: Thanks, that explains it. I don't remember exactly when it occured when binance-bin was newer than this package, I guess I was just impatient that one time. :-)

metaanon commented on 2021-09-18 14:47 (UTC)

@veganvelociraptr

At that start of the year there were three binance packages on the aur. The aur mod team merged them all into this package.

Not sure why jkcdarunday felt the need for another package.

And I'm not sure what you mean about the updates? If you check the change log I've updated this package with every version Binance has released since I took over in March.

veganvelociraptr commented on 2021-09-18 13:58 (UTC)

How is this different from the binance-bin package? Other than that this package is now updated and the other one isn't. Last month it was the other way around...

sha256sums=($(curl -sL https://ftp.binance.com/electron-desktop/linux/production/binance-amd64-linux-deb-sha256.txt))

check() block should be removed

Does anyone else experience that the keyboard shortcuts for quick buy and quick sell (F1 and F2) suddenly stop working?
