Please do not flag this package out-of-date unless it fails to build due to upstream changes.

@raven2cz 5.4 is Arch's default Lua (and has been for a while), Awesome still requires 5.3. They made changes to the build system to make it easier to build against non-default versions of Lua.

The PKGBUILD needs update. According to

The lua 5.4 is default now. The build has to use new build option. Sed is cannot be used now.

Does not build. Upstream changes:

it don't fail but it put some breaking changes since the last update like some apps as MS Teams got a black screen when sharing a screen.

lgi currently only has experimental lua 5.4 support, so we should make this package use lua 5.3 until this is fixed

I seem to get this error when I build now (it's just stopped working (Upstream related?)):

[ 0%] Building C object CMakeFiles/test-gravity.dir/tests/test-gravity.c.o make[2]: No rule to make target '/usr/lib/', needed by 'test-gravity'. Stop. make[1]: [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:499: CMakeFiles/test-gravity.dir/all] Error 2 make: *** [Makefile:149: all] Error 2 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

I think it might be because Lua has been upgraded in the main repos to 54 now?:

I can see that there's a 5.4 version coming along soon maybe

Why is this package older than stable? It wasn't supposed to be the "beta" version?

pinning lua penlight to 1.4.1 also helps

This failed to build at the documentation generation stage for me. Passing `-DGENERATE_DOC=0` to cmake allowed the build to continue.

/usr/lib/ undefined reference to `FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates'
