I wasn't aware of KDE Ark, but I have tried dargui with spotty results.

@Aaron-xn There is and also KDE's Ark can open them if dar is installed.

@Aaron-xn I'm just packaging, please report your ideas upstream. I'm not aware of any gui, I'm using dar on servers.

I would really love to have a GUI for my dar archives. :) Just say'en.

From 2.6.x to 2.7.0
- new feature: zstd compression algorithm added
- added lz4 compression algorithm

These packages should be in dependencies, I think.

2.6.13 has been out since Nov. 8, 2020. It built fine on my 64 bit arch. Please update the pkgbuild.

pkgver=2.6.13 sha512sums=('f0f853db6e15f5abfabf87be06a1c374662c7fa7e1140eaaeef3e8c8c4d0049a00a8e74409d6805ea3ae5b2f3171f2eba27459e8acb4438c467c4f0bd0825c0c')

BTW, the default for --enable-mode is 64 bits. It does not need to be specified for that case. Only needed if specifying --enable-mode=32

I've submitted a PKGBUILD for libthreadar to the AUR so you could add it as an optional dependency for experimental multithreading support (run dar with -G / --multi-thread).

pls add pybind11 as optional dependency for python bindings (dar won't build them without it)
