Thanks for your hints. I will look into the JRE thing as soon as I find some time.

Look at CLion package. You can do the same for Idea. Make split package so everyone can install only parts they need.

According to JetBrains we should use the bundled JRE:

> Starting from IntelliJ IDEA 16 and the most recent versions of the lightweight IDEs, we are bundling custom JRE with Linux distributions, just like we've been doing for Mac.

@Light2Yellow: Have you tried following what IntelliJ suggest? Running it as root and then update it?
I personally don't do this and have never tried. But could be worth a shot and see if it works if updating from AUR is a hassle for you.

Running anything as root should be done with caution though. So do as you will.

What can be done with "inline" updates, I mean patches from GUI? It is a bit uncomfortable to download and untar the whole 800 MB package every time.

@jshap70: Do you think downloading the checksum from the same source as you retrieve the download is really safe? If you have write access, you can manipulate both source and checksum.

I will look into the JRE bundling later. I don't really like the idea of having a bundled JRE, but it seems that JetBrains is "forced" to do that...

bumping @Teedee 's comment about including the JRE. Also, take a look at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/intellij-idea-ue-eap/ 's pkgbuild to automatically get sha256 sums from jetbrains. You just add .sha256 onto the end of the .tar.gz url.

The new font ligatures feature in the upcoming release relies on the bundled Jetbrains JRE. It seems more of a hassle to change the pkgbuild to download the release with the bundled Jetbrains JRE (also have to deal with checksums etc) than to just have a commented line in the pkgbuild which removes the bundled JRE after download. I suggest switching back to the download with the Jetbrains JRE bundled.

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:
{code}
_ver=1.0.2h
# use a pacman compatible version scheme
pkgver=${_ver/[a-z]/.${_ver//[0-9.]/}}
{code}
