Problem seems to be xsltproc:
a2x: ERROR: "xsltproc" --stringparam 0 --stringparam 0 --stringparam admon.textlabel 1 --stringparam 0 "/etc/asciidoc/docbook-xsl/manpage.xsl" "/tmp/yaourt-tmp-matt/aur-i3-kde/src/i3/man/i3.xml" returned non-zero exit status 5

xsltproc documentation says "5: error in the stylesheet", this has to be some stricter handling of xslt files by newer versions of xsltproc because the repo hasn't changed in a while.

I have no arch installation anymore because i switched to opensuse a while ago, so i can't try myself.

Have you tried manually building a recent version of upstream i3?

a bit late but finally found time to merge 4.12

please report back if you experience any problems, i've switched to opensuse a while back so i don't have an arch installation to test the build.

i3-wm (v4.12) has been released a month ago. Please update this package. thanks.

I was thinking about updating to upstream some time last week but i haven't found the time so far.
Expect an update within the next 1-2 weeks :)

can you please update to version 4.11. This will fix the jumping menu windows issue: . I tested this with the Airblades' fork . But his fork creates a new issue with the plasmadesktop. It will shown on top of the first workspace and I have to kill it with "$mod+shift+x". As a result all widgets are also away.

So, I (maybe we) need your kde patches :) .

Everything still necessary ported to 4.8. I left out the close window on middleclick feature, if anybody really needs this drop me a note then i'll put it in.

You might wanna read the at for more information and configuration instructions.
