This is maintained by employees of Mojang.

We have no "current" release for any Linux distribution, due to some issues that we are working on fixing.

As soon as we have any release, we will update this package. Note that any old versions (like this one, or current "new" one some people are suggesting to use) might stop working in the future, until we fix these issues.

"flite" should be added as an optional dependency; it is needed for the new chat narrator feature in 1.12.

Basically, what I have done is download the Linux version from minecraft.net, and I use the Jar file to launch the game when I want to play. That way works just fine for me.
The file is named minecraft.jar.

You say "This is maintained by employees of Mojang." I would say, it is unmaintained. Linux is neglected as always. Will continue using the old launcher for now.

If you don't have time to keep this updated could you please hand it over to someone that does?

./launcher error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Installing gconf solved this problem and resulted, for me, in a working launcher.o Maybe add gconf to the dependencies list.
