@3xploiton3, no need for that. The featherpad-git here has the latest version.

If u wanna install very up to date version,

Follow this instruction

Download snapshot or extract the archive open a terminal inside it and enter makepkg. After the package is made, install it with sudo pacman -U *.pkg.tar.xz.

With Manjaro/Arch+AUR, you could always have the latest git version. Just do the above once in a while.

Had some problems with #include <hunspell/hunspell.h> which were solved adding hunspell to 'depends', but maybe it could be instead in makedepnds+optdepends (in both) too...
