There is a crash (buffer overflow) when exporting a figure as "Combined PDF/LaTeX (both parts)" (the crash also happen when exporting other "both parts" fig). The bug has been submitted in Fedora and upstream with a patch provided upstream. See comment 3 in:

After applying the patch, the problem is solved.

In the recent package update, version 3.2.8 (the previously installed version) is considered larger than 3.2.8b (what is in the AUR):

warning: downgrading package xfig (3.2.8-1 => 3.2.8b-2)

In that case it is needed to increment $epoch.
Or add a . before the b.

Thanks for maintaining,

With the text tool, I cannot enter Umlaute anymore with a German keyboard. When I press the "ö" key, for example, then just nothing happens. I can enter Umlaute with the View/Character Map popup, though.

Could there be an issue with the CompKeyDB file?

There is an issue with the version numbering, minor but irritating: The package on AUR has version 3.2.7b-1, but the generated package has version 3.2.7-2. As a result automated AUR tools such as yay complain that the installed version is newer than the version in AUR.

Hi, do you think you can incorporate this bug fix as a patch for aur? In spite of being quite simple, it has not been integrated into the main xfig source for months. The bug itself is quite annoying, as it makes polylines out of all splines.

the big fix is actually from
