Updated. I've been using it all day and it seems to work just fine. Let me know if there are any problems.

Network notifications don't work with me with the current version anyway, regardless of screen or tmux backend. I say go ahead and update it!

Adopted. I'm strongly leaning toward updating this to the latest version. It seems to work fine, but I did notice the network notifications in particular don't work well (or at all).

Orphaned, as I don't use it anymore and it tends to be difficult to maintain.

As a note for a future maintainer, my last attempt at upgrading the package (byobu 5.7) resulted in notifications being unstable (that is, they sometimes showed up and sometimes didn't).

Please update to latest version. I'm affected by this bug that's been fixed in v5.2:

@fuhry: thanks for the update

However, after a quick testing, it looks like notifications don't work correctly (most notably, the network ones). They even disappear after a few seconds.

If somebody is willing to debug, see what's wrong, submit a patch to upstream and update the AUR package, I'll gladly orphan it.

Please don't flag this package out-of-date unless there's a specific feature that has been included recently.

I know it's nice to have the latest version, but byobu's upstream tend to release very frequently, even when there aren't a lot of changes. So if you're 3 or 4 versions late, you should usually not be missing anything.

Sorry, I forgot to remove that file.

It should work fine now.

I tried updating byobu from version 4.46-1 to the latest (5.0-1) just now but I get an error:

What can I do to solve this?
