Hello, could you update downloads to https?

@amiad: Sorry for the delay, I didn't enabled notifications of this package before; now I enabled it.

A tarball for beta is not available, however you can easily git-clone a specific commit, or download a zip archive file of a specific commit from GitHub. See e.g. 'jhbuild' package (which I maintain). Feel free to contact me if you need more detailed info.

btw, if you plan to create another package, I suggest you to go ahead with "-git" (to dynamically update the version) instead of a -beta/-dev (newer, unreleased), as this software don't have (currently) much development activity; if some development happen in the git-repo, then there would be a git-package ready to get it. Just my 2 cents on the subject.

@rafaelff: I update the deps.
Where the beta? Maybe I will create new package for its.

@amiad: Please replace 'translate-toolkit' with 'python2-translate-toolkit-lib', as it provides all translate API built with python2.

By the way, could you please update Virtaal to the unreleased 1.0.0 beta1 version? I've been using it for some time and it looks stable enough, and also fix some bugs from 0.7.1.

MazeChazer: the reason is that translate-toolkit is now built with python3, which is incompatible with virtaal as it requires python2. This is easily solved providing a translate-toolkit's libs built against python2. I'm working on a AUR package for that. Please wait a bit.

I can't even build this package anymore:

ImportError: No module named

This package is incompatible with translate-toolkit 2.0.0 since the latter no longer provides Python 2 libs.

$ pacman -Qs virtaal

Since a couple of days ago, Virtaal is freezing on startup. It doesn't matter if I open it with or without an existing PO file: the main window opens, I see the header of the window, but nothing more is displayed.

Is it just me?
