@antony: This issue occured when there was already a "src" directory lying around from the last build.

I now changed the PKGBUILD to only extract from the JAR what is needed which solves this issue.

Cuurently fails to build:

@chicomag: The .jar file needs to be extracted because this is where we get the application icon get from, so extracting is actually intended. I don't see any disadvantage of this, because we package only what is needed (jar file, icon, start script, desktop file).

Please, add noextract=("JabRef-${pkgver}.jar") to the PKGBUILD, because makepkg is extracting the file, and this is not intended.

BibLaTeX mode is a file-based mode now. Switch the mode using File -> "Switch to BibLaTeX mode".

See also blog entry "April 19, 2016 – Release of JabRef 3.3" on (Sorry, currently no deep links possible).

@Moneysac: Will push the new version in a moment but please use the "flag out-of-date" function in future.

Regarding the BibLaTeX mode: I think the option just moved. In Preferences->General you can change the standard mode from BibTeX to BibLaTeX.

Version 3.3 is available. This package does not provide the biblatex mode which is important for online references.

anntzer commented on 2016-02-04 08:58 should just force Java 8 (like the jabref-git package does:, otherwise jabref will fail to start on environments where Java 7 is the default.

It seems that the 3.2 version has been released. Shall we update this package now?

The link is working now. The problem seemed to on Sourceforge, that did not have any mirrors available at that time.
