@Francois_B, I would like to update to 7.4, but I can't get pylonviewer to detect USB3Vision cameras in 7.4. I can't tell if something regarding installation/packaging changed or if this is just an upstream bug.

Anyone who wants to find out, try this PKGBUILD:

Updated to 7.0.0. Also removed the version number from the application path (/opt/pylon7 -> /opt/pylon). If this causes any problems, let me know.

Updated to 6.2.0. I checked that pylonviewer is working, but I don't have a Basler camera at the moment, so please report anything that may have broken here.

Basler seem to have changed the download link to ..ab_testing_1.., which suggests, that they may start offering different builds under the same link. If this starts to happen, the checksums will fail and we'll have to think something up.

Version 6.2.0 is out. Can we update?

Nice. Thanks for keeping this up-to-date!

My bad, messed something up while moving changes from my repo to AUR.

Will comment again, once it's fixed.
