I tried to build version 0.8.0-1 with makepkg -si and got this error: (BTW: how can I format text as shell output, like dmp1ce did ?)

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

We will skip the 0.8.1 release as there have been some major changes in the build configuration and building this release is most tricky.

The changes from 0.8.0 to 0.8.1 only apply to new installations anyways, as they reduce the startup time when run the very first time on a system.

If you insist on upgrading, please use the bisq-bin package instead.

(Bisq 0.9 is coming up with lots of changes anyways...)

0.7.1 isn't building for me so I'm not releasing it. Possibly an upsteam issue with the 0.7.1 tag. Here is the errors I'm getting. bisq-git builds for me.

I noticed the fix. I was able to build but I am currently traveling so I won't be able to make a new release until tonight or tomorrow.

@dmp1ce upstream issue #537 has been resolved yesterday ;). Thank you!

dmp1ce commented on 2018-05-14 13:50

Waiting for a fix from upstream for version 0.7.0.

Thank you dmp1ce, curiously that worked for me as well. It built successfully after reinstalling jdk8-openjdk, jre8-openjdk, and jre8-openjdk-headless, and then rebooting. I also cleared out the build directory, to start fresh.

I also saw a crash yesterday but today Bisq is building OK for me. I'm not sure what caused the crash for me. Maybe I had updated Java and rebooted which fixed the issue for me.

Usually Bisq builds fine, but sadly I just had a build error appear. Here is the terminal message:

The error log is obviously MUCH larger, so I have not included it here, though I can share it if it is useful.

@robertfoster, bisq-bin is different because I'm using upstream .desktop.
