Yeah, I knew that already. My point is that LogMeIn probably considers v2.0.0.11 to be more stable than v0.9.9.9, given that the latter no longer works on some Linux distributions. I'm guessing that's why they've removed all links to it from their website.

They might just be stating that v2 currently isn't stable to avoid any potential legal issues if it fails. In any event, some might argue that since Arch Linux is a bleeding-edge distribution, this package should be upgraded to the v2.0.0.11 beta edition now :-).

LogMeIn clearly states that v2 for Linux is in beta and that it's not stable [1]. Moreover, it also support v0.9.9.9 still on it's website even if it has cut down the advertisements for it [2].

It's good to know that we all agree on creating a separate package, one way or another :-). The next release of Quamachi will feature basic support for Hamachi v2.

If LogMeIn still considers Hamachi v0.9.9.9 to be stable, why have all references to it vanished from their website? It's now failing on other Linux distributions and LogMeIn probably realises that it's not so stable anymore!

Ape commented on 2010-07-09 07:04 is still the stable version. Please create a new package for the new version.

I think a separate pkgbuild is the better solution. Then at the moment a gui for the new hamachi doesn't exist.

A link to the tarball of the v0.9.9.9 edition is no longer advertised on the Hamachi website. I think this is an indication that LogMeIn wants Linux users to upgrade immediately. Based on this, it's still my opinion that you should do as I suggested below relatively soon.

"this is Beta software and is in no way meant to be used in a production environment."

As v2.0.0.11 is still a development version it should not replace this stable package yet. Instead you should create a new package called hamachi-beta, hamachi-dev, or hamachi2 etc. When it goes stable it will replace this package.

The v0.9.9.9 edition has been replaced by v2.0.0.11, which is available here: Before upgrading this package, it should be re-uploaded to AUR as 'hamachi-legacy'.
