Same patch works for the 5.5 release, just had to change pkgver=5.5.

5.4.3 is out. What would it take to move forward? This patch worked for me:

Surprisingly the missing ':' character bug still persists. Fixed in Ubuntu.

Also, when I run the swift command, I see these errors:

silverhammermba illuser: Python 3.6 is required by liblldb, if you try to start the Swift REPL it'll break without it. It's an unfortunate consequence of having to use binaries that weren't built for Arch. (rpmextract was a mistaken holdover from the past, though, I've removed it.)

I am also confused by the python36 dependency. I tried building without it (I have python 3.9.5) and it seems to work fine.

If anyone needs it, i just created a PKGBUILD with the recent Swift 5.4.2

Is there really a need for the hard dependency on python3.6? And why is there a make dependency on rpmextract when it isn't used?

@ytg123: sort of? basically this week is my finals week after 2 weeks straight of multiple major projects being due, so my time is quite constrained atm, please hang tight until early next week at the latest

Hello refi.64, Swift 5.4 has been released and this package has been marked out of date at 26/04. Quite some time has passed since then, but it seems as though no updates have been made. Is an update in progress?

hey refi.64, can you please update, there is an important fix in 5.3.2:

I had a heck of a time getting this to work with clion but I found this:

Don't know if I'm being helpful or cluttering things up, feel free to delete.

Also, I used symlinks instead and it works well.
