This package was updated to gnome 40, as maintainer promised.

For the ones who like me want to stick to gnome 3.38 for longer time, I forked this (and related) repo to new aur package:

@codic12 Thanks for using it.

@SamLukeYes Looks like you're right, thanks! Should be removed in pkgrel 3

Thanks for this package! Some notes: - When it's updated to 40, it would be great if you could separate the 3.38 into another package so those of us that like it can keep using it. - latest release is 3.38.6, if I remember correctly - gnome tweaks doesn't launch but it doesn't show any errors or warnings when run from the console, which is weird. maybe the oldstable of that needs to be packaged too.

Does this package really require gtk4? gnome-shell added this dependency when upgrading to 40.0:

@fabis_cafe: Ah, okay. That makes sense.

@yochananmarqos This is not tied to 3.38. Current oldstable version is 3.38, which is supported until late august. See After 41 release, 40 will be the new oldstable and this might be upgraded to 40 (if possible).

"oldstable"? Older packages are customarily suffixed by the version; i.e., gnome-shell338.
