The 1.19 release fix missing desktop integration files and icons in Linux packages. Then the "install desktop file and icon" step in the pkgbuild can be removed.

SciDAVis 1.18 has been released (some improvements/bug fixes since 1.17):
I believe that you will not need scidavis-qwt5.patch to build this version.

Best regards.

SciDAVis 1.17 has been released.
The patch "fix_wrong_values_on_parameters_errors.patch" is not necessary anymore.

By inspecting the PKGBUILD, I noticed that you are not enabling Python scripting and Origin import support. These are features that makes SciDAVis more useful and powerful. If you want to enable them, just add CONFIG+="liborigin python" to qmake:
qmake-qt4 CONFIG+="liborigin python"

Best regards.

Unfortunately there is no new version for SciDAVis.
That information about the last update may be due to anything modified in the SciDAVis page on (this is a "problem" in all project pages).
In order to check for new SciDAVis versions see:

you have a wrong md5sum in your PKGBUILD for scidavis-qwt5.patch

If I check the md5sum of this file, I get 4166c8637deb81bce31d5ee511586245

qt-assistant-compat is no more a dependency(dropped after scidavis-1.D9)

Fix: always crash on trying to plot
