Running tastyworks does not work anymore:

Cannot find!Failed to find library. /usr/lib/jvm/default-runtime/lib/jli/ tastyworks Failed to locate JLI_Launch tastyworks Failed to launch JVM

I've flagged it out-of-date.

Got an email from them. "tastyworks will officially transition from v0.44.13 to v1.0.18 for Mac, PC..."

Thanks for the update but the Arch package had already been updated to the new version to support this as of about three weeks ago. Special thanks to @rko for doing some of the heavy lifting required in getting the updated version to run correctly.

Finally had a chance to go through and update this. Looks like everything is working for me. @rko Hope you don't mind if I borrow some from the scripting work you posted since all those changes look good to me.

As for the .png file, previously tastyworks didn't package a usable icon with the application. I had to take the one that had been in this package from their Android app (with some minor modification to make it work here). I'm going to leave it in there for now as an option since it represented a good bit of personal time investment before now.

tastyworks finally released 1.0.15, which is a major change. I had to significantly modify the PKGBUILD to make it work. Diff below:

Notes: I had to fix permissions to solve the program crashing due to not being able to open .jar and .so files.

I decided to use the internal tastyworks.png instead of the one in the package file. They updated the look.

I had to recreate a missing symlink to the program binary in /usr/bin.

Minor tweaks to original values in the .desktop file.

Path fixes due to upstream path changes.
