Thank for the quick response! Finally we got rid of the 32 bit bottleneck.

Regarding the version number I'd like to add that 1.14i is quite unspecific as it denotates actually Tsugio Okamoto's version from the year 2000 (LHa for UNIX V 1.14i 2000 Tsugio Okamoto) which is now quite dated and still contains all the bugs. The whole version number of Koji Arai's branch is actually 1.14i-ac20081023 + the git revision. Why that?

1.) There are distinct older versions by Koji Arai: 1.14i-ac20050924p1, 1.14i-ac20050924, 1.14i-ac20040929, 1.14i-ac20030921 and 1.14i-ac20020903

2.) 'lha --version' returns: LHa for UNIX version 1.14i-ac20081023

3.) It seems that Koji Arai stopped giving new -acDATE version numbers after he moved the code from OSDN to GitHub and just kept '-ac20081023', although he committed several changes.

Thus the complete version indicator in AUR should be: 1.14i-ac20081023.7c3cd95-1

@sl1pkn07 Since you're using git sources, the 'git' package is missing from makedepends and needs to be added.

"LHA for UNIX Version 1.17" by M. Ishii is a binary from a dead development branch of the LHa archiver. There is no access to its source code anymore and it likely suffers from a couple of security vulnerabilities (CVE-2006-4335, CVE-2006-4337 and CVE-2006-4338).

Luckily there is another branch by Koji Arai available on GitHub (1.14i-ac20081023 git rev: 7c3cd95) that is still maintained. It seems to contain a more efficient implementation of lh7 as the files it creates with option 'ao7' are slightly smaller than the files created by the binary from the dead branch.

The branch of Koji Arai is available at:

His branch is also used by Fedora:
