Gnome shell reached beta, so maybe rename package to gnome-shell-40beta, same for mutter

@maniacata I can't compile new glib2-git here at least for two weeks. Gnome shell neither. The version I kept is not updated with the latest development branches, but I can't compile the new ones. Mutter compiles ok, but the new one has runtime bugs, so I have to downgrade :/.

Is glib2-git compiling ok on your systems?

@wooque @ewout use the latest glib2-git from AUR. e.g.

yay -S aur/glib2-git aur/glib2-docs-git

New glib2-git dependency conflicted with glib2. Force removal of glib2 using # pacman -Rdd glib2 resolved it.

Getting this error mutter/ ERROR: Invalid version of dependency, need 'glib-2.0' ['>= 2.67.3'] found '2.66.4'.

@marcio Alternatively only forcing the uninstallation of mutter did the trick here. Shaves a few minutes of having to reinstall gnome-shell.

# pacman -Rdd mutter

Thanks for creating this package, allowing easy testing without VM hassle! :) The UX of the shell is much much more responsive, may Daniel van Vugt and Georges Basile Stavracas Neto be forever blessed for their contributions.

@bluebyt I had this problem here too. I was thinking that as long as I was installing both gnome-shell and mutter, aur helpers will resolve this. But anyway, I worked around this by removing gnome-shell before starting the processes:

# pacman -Rdd gnome-shell
# "aur-helper" -S gnome-shell-40alfa

I will be glad if you have a more clean solution.

I get this error: :: mutter-40alfa and mutter are in conflict. Remove mutter? [y/N] error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: removing mutter breaks dependency '' required by gnome-shell
