2017-05-12propagate gnome-shell 3.24 compatibilityXZS
The aforementioned bug in the preferences panel [1] seems gone. So full compatibility with the current gnome-shell version (apart from yet unknown bugs, evidently) can now be shipped out. [1]:
2017-05-12propagate partial gnome-shell 3.24 compatibilityXZS
According to a bug report [1], the settings panel does not yet work, but the core functionality does. An update is worth shipping out so that users are not blocked from upgrading gnome-shell to the current version entirely. [1]:
2016-11-01choose newest extension sourceXZS
Some extensions authors introduce build steps required before installing. Their execution normally produces a completed variant of the extension code in a subdirectory, difficult to tell apart from the original source. The find condition introduced herein proves the process against such cases to come. It always chooses the files created last, ensuring that a build which occurred after mere unpacking will always take precedence.

2016-09-22support arbitrary integrity checksXZS
The git-makepkg-templates switched to dynamic adaptation to integrity checks chosen in makepkg.conf. [1] The default checksums chosen reflect recommendations from the Arch Linux Wiki and manual pages. [2] [1]: [2]:
2016-07-20break long linesXZS
According to the Arch Packaging Standards [1], lines in a PKGBUILD should be no longer than 100 characters. This does not change the contents of the built package, so the pkgver stays unchanged. [1]:
2016-07-20improve location metricXZS
As an extension consists of both the metadata description and a JavaScript entry point always named extension.js, searching for both hardens the locating process against changes to the directory structure. This does not change the contents of the built package, so the pkgver stays unchanged.
2016-04-22fix version comparisonXZS
Comparing the minor version to a string of minor and major will never succeed. Originally, a restriction on the current shell version was omitted for historical reasons - most packages did so when dependencies were defined manually. This now turns into a concious decision to - permit the usage of the extension in instable gnome-shell versions - the ones with odd minor version numbers - where incompatibilities are introduced gradually. - ease the transition from one stable gnome-shell version - the ones with even minor version numbers - to the next. In an ideal world, all extensions should have been updates before the update hits the repositories. But as Arch is quite more on the edge than developers of some of the extensions, this is not the case more often than not.

2016-04-04compile translationsXZS
The compiled translations were removed from the repository in favor of a script to generate them from their sources. This has to be done in the build script now.
2016-03-23propagate upstream updateXZS
Whether the extension is deactivated on shell restart can now be configured by the user.
2016-03-23end grep trickery, it has been bustedXZS
Unbelievably, also traditional tools like grep are regularly updated still today. Version 2.24 forbid the combination of some features with the -z option. This was exactly what was exploited here to make grep ignore newlines so they would not interrupt JSON dissection. More information about the change can be found at the bottom of the respective release notes. [1] Fixing it costs an invocation of tr to remove the bothersome newlines. Because the files are read within "find -exec" where input redirection is not readily possible, cat has to be invoked to start the pipeline. The grep script got only a tiny bit simpler by adhering to the new restriction and leaving newlines to tr. Thanks to AUR users jmauss, Asher256 and vinadoros for pointing to the critical line. [1]:
2016-02-17propagate upstream updateXZS
Apart from language updates, this disables caffeine on manual lock and reboot. This avoids keeping the screen from locking unexpectedly, which could be risky in terms of security.
2016-02-07version provided non-git variantXZS
Other packages usually depend on the package without any -git suffix. This makes it possible to als satisfy these dependency requirements when they target specific versions or version ranges.
