I updated the package. It should compile and work with the current gnome-shell version.

However, I don't think Taijian's suggestion should be incorporated. Removing the upper version bound when equal to the current version already was a sort of workaround as many extension developers do not update their compatibility list when the extension keeps working with a future version without change. When the extension is actively tested against new versions I would like to trust the developer on their compatibility statement.

This indeed means that sometimes the extension may only work with a version newer than already present in the Arch Linux repositories. In the case of coverflow, this is often the case as changes that make it work with a newer version break compatibility with an earlier version. If that comes to my attention, I would prefer holding this package on a specific revision until the new gnome-shell version hits our repositories.

This is no longer out of date. Can you update that?

With the latest update there is a version check mismatch in line 78 of your PKGBUILD - because git is compatible with shell version 3.38 but we only have 3.36 yet, the check fails. So instead of if [ "$max" != $(, you should use if [ "$max" < $(.

Trying to install this on shell 3.34.1 gives an error message wrt a non-supported shell version even though support for 3.34 has been merged upstream - at least in git, but not in a stable release yet...

The newest update makes it work natively with gnome-shell 3.14.

New git repo, works with GNOME 3.4.

Extension doesn't work yet with GNOME 3.4.
