I took over the maintenance of this PKGBUILD.

I updated it to v0.1.2, added 'aarch64' support in the ${arch} array (since I could built it successfully on alarm) and made various improvements to it.

I prefer to orphan this package because I've not used rar in years...

In all cases, thanks for your work and efforts on providing an up-to-date and free implementation of unrar :)

If you don't have any link with the original developers, I think it's safer not to change the behavior of this legacy package, and instead to fork the gna project and choose another name.

I took over maintenance of this software at

Version 0.0.2: Fix several CVEs that are still in your package.

Version 0.1.0: Reimplementation on top of libarchive (RAR 5.0 support)

@Anonymous This package will never replace the proper UnRAR package because this can only extract archaic Roshal Archives that were made with a version of RAR that still supported versions of MS-DOS and OS/2 running on purely 16-bit x86 CPUs.

Thanks. Should now be fixed.

Please replace ${startdir}/src with $srcdir and ${startdir}/pkg with $pkgdir.

Thank you for packaging this. This should replace the one in [Extra].
