FYI I ported diffpdf to Qt5/cmake:

Let me know if you will update this package, otherwise I can create a different one (diffpdf-qt5 or something).

Very good comments @dice and @catalin.hritcu.
So sorry for the delay in updating.

Nevermind, that script is supposed to show packages that depend on libstdc++, and that's the case both before and after the rebuild ( Sorry for the noise.

This package shows up on the list of packages that need to be rebuit after the recent switch to C++ dual ABI.
Unfortunately this happens to me even after rebuilding and reinstalling the package locally, which is quite puzzling.

I would like to propose to use the following link for the Upstream URL:

The current PKGBUILD does not find the diffpdf.desktop file because the path is wrong.

'git diff' of my Solution (also mentioned by xduugu earlier):

Ready! try it now.

I wrote to the author about this situation, if there is no response it could raise the source file to my dropbox account, but I guess that violate safety standards.
