Lets see what they are saying:

wookietreiber commented on 2015-09-18 09:26

Yes, I have seen that, too. I honestly don't know, why they tagged it as a pre-release version and not chose to name it like 0.1.14rc1. Maybe it's because of the autotools changes and they wanted to wait for user feedback if something does not work as expected.

Stunts commented on 2015-09-18 08:56

@wookietreiber: Thanks for the dedication on updating, but 0.1.14 is a pre-release version... IMO it's best to wait for the release version.

Thx :)

@wookietrebier - welcome on board.

See for an up to date PKGBUILD. If you are OK with it, you can also add me as a maintainer for this AUR package and I'll update the PKGBUILD myself.

0.1.13 has just been tagged and released at GitHub:

Stunts commented on 2015-08-03 12:49

The latest manual does reference 0.1.13, but IIRC it's been like that for ages.

wookietreiber commented on 2015-08-03 12:48

I do not find a reference to 0.1.14 anywhere neither.

Stunts commented on 2015-08-03 12:19

The website has moved but the latest released version is still 0.1.12b.
I cannot find any references to 0.1.14 anywhere. Where did you find it?

Stunts commented on 2015-07-31 23:27

@gantzgraf: Thanks for the heads up. I'll be dealing with this as soon as I return from vacations.

gantzgraf commented on 2015-07-31 16:16

Hello, now that v0.1.14 is available and the project has moved to github ( I was wondering whether you were going to update PKGBUILD?

Stunts commented on 2014-12-07 15:42

What link are you referring to?
All the links in the PKGBUILD are working just fine for me...
But thanks for the feedback!

alexpe87 commented on 2014-12-07 14:22

You should make the link work ;-)


Stunts commented on 2014-12-06 21:54

Forgot to mention - I based this PKGBULD on the one from wookietreiber, so kudos to him!

Stunts commented on 2014-12-06 21:52

The package was orphaned so I adopted it and updated it to the latest version.
Which is ackward, since 0.1.12b is actually supposed to be before 0.1.12.
I will not put an "epoch" behind the version since the developers should be releasing version 0.1.13 soon.

wookietreiber commented on 2014-08-07 07:56

@Alister.Hood: ... or maybe using a cross-compiler would work.

wookietreiber commented on 2014-08-07 07:55

@Alister.Hood: The Makefile includes a hard-coded `-m64` so, I guess, it actually should be arch=('x86_64') only.

wookietreiber commented on 2014-08-07 07:52

see for the latest version PKGBUILD

Alister.Hood commented on 2014-04-09 02:24

Hmmm. Currently fails for me:

bgzf.c:1:0: sorry, unimplemented: 64-bit mode not compiled in
/* The MIT License
<builtin>: recipe for target 'bgzf.o' failed
make[1]: *** [bgzf.o] Error 1

wookietreiber commented on 2014-03-10 15:53

Would you please orphan the package? I have the latest one available.

sbarbi commented on 2012-12-06 08:46

Done. Thank you for the advise.

Allan commented on 2012-12-06 05:53

Using "vcf-query -r" calls tabix. Would be good to package that and add it as an (opt)depend.
