Just to check, <> gives a 404 Not found error?

if any of you are in need of the package, just go to and check for the current release and the modify this PKGBUILD to use the current version and skip the integrity check.

If you'd like the old PKGBUILDs to keep working and not 404, please upvote this issue asking Signal team to not delete old packages:

I think it would be a good idea if this package would have a provides and conflicts with signal-desktop-bin in the PKGBUILD.

The deb file gives a 404 error.

Use this PKGBUILD for latest beta (September 7):

v1.11.0-beta.3 is a security fix, please upgrade.

@andres: I'll try reducing dependencies for the next release.

It would be really convenient if this package was a drop-in replacement for signal-desktop-bin when testing out bug fixes. Currently, signal-desktop-beta-bin has more dependencies -- does it need them? Similarly, a /usr/bin alias such as could be convenient but whether that is something for a PKGBUILD to add is a separate question.
