Current version at 20160215
RAR 5.30 for Linux
RAR 5.30 for Linux x64

AUR was updated and improved (provides unrar) at 2016-02-13.

So please don't mark this OUT-OF-DATE.

That doesn't require even bumping the pkgrel, by the way.

Now that with pacman 4.2.0 [1] / AUR 3.5.0 [2] there is support for architecture-specific sources [3], you could use:

if [ "$CARCH" = "i686" ]; then
elif [ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ]; then

The AUR "Sources" section will then look like so:

[1] =
[2] =
[3] =

I think it's worthwhile to add rar.txt and whatsnew.txt to the package.
