Downgrading the package to libsynctex-2017.44590-14-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz fixed the issue for me with the mainline Zathura (community package).

Ah. It looks like the changes were on synctex's end, not zathura's, and that there's already a patch in the development branch of zathura. It seems that this will just be a matter of waiting a few days for that patch to be adopted in the master branch.

I'm getting a failed build. Possibly related to the recent zathura synctex changes?

In file included from ../zathura/zathura/synctex.c:8:0: /usr/include/synctex/synctex_parser.h:53:10: fatal error: synctex_version.h: No such file or directory

I suggest adding python-sphinx to makedepends, as it's required to build the manpages (as you can see in src/zathura/doc/Makefile lines 41 onwards).

Package built without python-sphinx:

$ find pkg/zathura-git/usr/share/man -type f -> (nothing)

Package built with python-sphinx installed:

$ find pkg/zathura-git/usr/share/man -type f -> man5/zathurarc.5.gz and man1/zathura.1.gz

Maybe it has already been said, but trying to update zathura-git doesn't automatically update girara-git, and with an old version of it installing will fail.

The minimum required version of GIRARA is 0.2.7
make: *** [Makefile:63: .version-checks/GIRARA] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build zathura-git.

The makedepends array does not contain the python requirements for building the documentation. Shouldn't they be included?
Also, since the required packages have had version upgrades shouldn't the checks be >= instead of specifying exact versions?

With these changes, the manpage files were built successfully.

updating from zathura-git fails with the error:

Any ideas?

Girara dependency should be versioned, like: depends=('girara-git>=0.2.4')

For reasons beyond my comprehension, zathura builds against libnotify, even if libnotify is not present. The vanilla Arch version does not. It looks like girara-git now depends on libnotify, but does not have it in its dep array. I'm currently trying to build it without libnotify present, to see if it's an autoconf problem or something like that.

Does anyone else get undefined references from libgdk?
