New release using upstream after FSMaxB's comment

Also I see that you use tags on Git so you should also provide cjson apart from cjson-git using latest tag instead of master

Sorry for this outdated packaging, the build was failing so I took ownership in order to make it build again from Sourceforge. If you use Archlinux often, you may want to take ownership of this package and tune it for using the new repo? (I don't know how to change ownership, maybe I should disown and you take it back)

Please reply so that I can disown and give you access to this, it is not a very difficult task imo (just create script that poll from github/master and done)

This is horribly outdated and contains security flaws. Also the license is MIT, not LGPL (yes, pohuguet put a GPL in the fork on GitHub, but the C Source files still contain the MIT license).

cJSON now has it's official home on GitHub ( and I made an official release since I took over as a maintainer.

Note that a lot of bugs have been fixed sind 2013, some of them quite relevant for security.

Took this package ownership as it was marked as orphan and updated it (fix from last comment + using git commit in pkgver()).

The PKGBUILD is currently missing the separate package() function and makepkg will fail. There is a very little patch I made you can apply here :
