@Martchus thanks, man. I can use it update package if I face any nightly error without bothering the maintainer.

@SolarAquarion When updating next time, you might want to try the script I added. It is a simple script which queries the list of nightly versions and inserts the latest version/date into the PKGBUILD similar like updpkgsums updates the checksums.

I totally get. I reinstalled the Arch, so after waiting 3 days I had to flag it. Thanks for the update.

But, sadly I am getting a dependency error:
checking for wx-config... no
configure: error:
wxWidgets 2.8.0 must be installed on your system to build the stream
analyzer. Please install or update your wxWidgets.

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Update: Problem solved.

> URL download and verification problem. Possibly pkgever and snapshot
date mismatch

@now-im I know. Hence I updated the package some days ago to version 20171023 on my PKGBUILDs repo but forgot to upload it here, too. I uploaded that version now. Of course a newer snapshot is likely available now, but for me it doesn't make sense to rebuild this so often.

Thanks for providing the package. However, since the last update I noticed a slight problem: the Qt GUI is gone. This is because now qt5-svg is required and without it the GUI isn't available at all.

I also did some further cleanup, see this commit message for details:
If you like, you can just copy my version ( back to this AUR repo. You can use `git diff` to see in detail what I have changed exactly.
