Ok this is still getting flagged as out of date so I'll explain it again:

This package is the official stable package you get when you go through the Minecraft website, which still points to "http://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/launcher/Minecraft.jar"

If you want the new launcher check the https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/minecraft-launcher package that is maintained by Mojang themselves.

And if you want this package to be the new launcher, just ask Mojang why 2.x is not deemed stable yet and if it is if they could update their links on the official website.

I trust that in time I will be able to update this package to the latest launcher but right now it will stay on this version.

Thank you for your understanding.

Updated https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Minecraft - Minecraft client (game) works fine even with java version 10, but the actual launcher starts only with java version 8.

@BombStrike My apologies. Your response to my request (and recent comment) helped me to understand why things are the way that they are between the two packages.

@BombStrike: I see, my bad!

@Brottweiler The tweet mentioned do not talk about the download link, but about the version file and my package already points to the link requested by Dinnerbone: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/minecraft?h=minecraft#n11

I flagged the package out of date now because the source URL is still not updated to the new one, which means this package could break randomly at any time when the legacy URL is removed.

I don't see any reason why you should place the new launcher here at all. As there already is a package with the new launcher maintained by Mojang, it would result in having two packages for the same thing, which is just useless.

The source URL needs to be changed, more info here: https://twitter.com/Dinnerbone/status/981978843178323968

You can pin your comment and hopefully then it will stand out so no more out of date flags.

If you're like me and got confused about the linked issue page: it seems the permalink has stopped working. Go to the "All" comments section and read by LightWayUp; basically saying to remove "-XX:+CMSIncrementalMode" from your profile's JVM arguments, also mentioned below.
