Hi cr1lle,

Thanks for the heads-up. The year in the license file has changed (Copyright © 2003-2019 > Copyright © 2003-2020). I've updated the checksum.

Using pamac-manager, I get the following error

Great, thank you!

Hi joelostblom,

I intentionally set permissions for all files in the PKGBUILD to prevent propagating potential file permission errors in the JabRef source archive that is otherwise used without any further checking. I have added the executable bit for the python script to the PKGBUILD. Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks for creating this package for Arch! After I installed, I had to set executable bit of /opt/JabRef/lib/ manually for the jabfox addon to work. I noticed this is already the case in the main repo, but it was not in the file installed on my system, so I thought I would report it here also in case the permissions are modified by the arch package upon installing.

Hi alleut,

I mistakenly set the current version to 4th of January when updating the PKGBUILD, the last nightly build however is from January 3rd. I was able to fix this issue.

There is something wrong with the version number in this update:

-> Unpacking 'Jabref-20200104.tgz' with bsdtar
==> Running pkgver()...
==> Updated version: 'jabref-latest 20200103-1'

Done. Thanks for pointing that out.

The retrieval of pkgver in PKGBUILD must be modified "Last-Modified" -> "last-modified"

pkgver() { curl --silent --head \ | grep "last-modified" | cut -d' ' -f2- | date -f - +%Y%m%d }
