Removing the epoch again now confused pacman again:

warning: downgrading package intellij-idea-ultimate-edition (2:2016.1.2b-1 => 2016.1.3-1)

I think now that it was there once, we need to keep it.

@rdoursenaud I don't think epoch version bumping is necessary. It also doesn't make sense bump epoch number when minor change is released.

I would rather use version 2016.1.2.b-1, which will not produce "downgrade warning issue" mentioned in previous comments.

I would also consider compatibility fix from openssl package to avoid having two version numbers in PKGBUILD:
# use a pacman compatible version scheme

That's exactly why there is epoch in PKGBUILD.

Also according to the wiki, you can use vercmp to make sure the version is seen as newer.

@uwolfer & @blmarket: Yes. Exactly. Pacman thinks the "b" means that the package is a beta-version. And since the last package wasn't a "b" version, this 'must' be a downgrade.
However, if you go to jetbrains download page ( ), they serve the "b"-version as the latest one.
So I suppose this thing is more of a "Who the heck uses letters in stable releases?" and "Who the heck adds letters to the next iteration of a stable release without bumping the numbers?" (to which the answer seems to include JetBrains)

pacman thinks 2016.1.2-1 is the newer than 2016.1.2b-1, maybe it regards 'b' as beta?

@Chewtoy: 2016.1.2b-1 is the newer version, isn't it?

Chewtoy commented on 2016-05-31 05:35

What's up with the revert? I now have a newer IntelliJ installed than AUR.
2016.1.2-1 (local) vs 2016.1.2b-1 (AUR).

Thank you @kageurufu.

Heres a patch for the PKGBUILD

It builds 2016.1.2b as 2016.1.2-2 for arch
