There seems to be a lot of confusion about the ST packages. This is because the author switched names for branches. AUR packages available:

Sublime Text 3 Beta
- package: sublime-text-dev
- upstream: www.sublimetext.com/3

Sublime Text 3 Dev (used to be called nightly)
- package: sublime-text-nightly
- upstream: www.sublimetext.com/3dev
- NOTE: for registered users only

If you want the latest build install *sublime-text-nightly*. Note that you have to be licensed to use this!

@cfstras Thanks for your input. For now I think it's a bit tricky to implement such a feature considering the diverse ways people would use (and install) this package. IMO it seems that staying as close as possible to the Arch way means we leave the package as is.

@sender agreed, force-closing might be too invasive, more so if a user disabled the autosave-feature. Is there the possibility of a timed prompt? So if the user happens to run their upgrade automatic, they'll see it, and after 10s it upgrades anyway?

We could learn from the way Windows Sublime self-updates. There might even be a possibility to tell Sublime itself to display a prominent (timed) prompt, to ensure catching active users.

@cfstras Valid point, but I don't see a sufficiently viable solution (yet). We can detect if ST is running, and present a prompt (force-closing is too invasive IMO). Downside of this is that it renders 'unattended installs' impossible/more difficult, and deviates from the default installation process (any examples of other packages that use a prompt?). You are right about ST saving its workspace. This does also happen when it freezes when updating. So manually killing and restarting has the same net-result as automating this (correct?). Downside: first time is a bit rough. Upside: the user if fully aware and responsible.

Note that it seems sublime _really_ does not like being updated while it's running. The last three updates I did made it hang so it had to be killed.

Is there an option to change the package so pacman will print a warning or gracefully close and restart after? (Since sublime saves the full workspace, no work would be lost, but it would be an interruption...)

There is already another package for Sublime Text 3 dev. Two packages (both maintained by @sender) for dev releases and none to beta ones. Sad... and why?

sender commented on 2015-03-17 12:06

My autobuild script packaged 3076 when it was released, but it got pulled within an hour. This package is reverted to build 3075 (dd. 10 March 2015).

sender commented on 2015-02-20 19:35

Updated to 3071.

@Marcel_K: thanks for the tip
@cola4cube: agreed - should have done this in the first place
