Unfortunately I am not using Arch Linux anymore, so this package is now looking for a new maintainer. Please adopt blitz if you are interested in this package! In particular it should be bumped to version 1.0.2, which probably also involves switching to the new CMake-based build system. Good luck to the new maintainer!

Bumped to new release 1.0.1. Building still requires using --nocheck, because of a bug affecting Boost 1.61 to 1.65.1 (fixed in

Thank you for the info, I did not know about the new upstream. I updated the PKGBUILD, bumping to a patched 1.0.0 version. Building works here under GCC 7.1.1, but the testsuite is still broken (use `makepkg --nocheck`).

There is an updated version on GitHub: I put the bare minimum changes required here: `check()` still fails, but `make lib` seems to work.

Building with gcc (GCC) 7.1.1 20170528 fails. Complains about "incomplete type" errors and a missing "fastread()" function. Has anyone successfully compiled it with latest GCC?

Substitute python with python2 in check(). sed 's/python/python2/g' blitz/generate/Makefile blitz/generate/*.py

Indeed, the test suite currently fails to build, probably due to an incompatibility with newer GCC versions. As a workaround, you can skip the tests by commenting out the check() function in PKGBUILD.

I get an error when trying to build the package: /usr/include/boost/archive/detail/iserializer.hpp:246:17: error: ‘blitz::MemoryBlock<P_type>::~MemoryBlock() [with P_type = double]’ is protected within this context
