@iuseakeyboard, the old package can still be downloaded here: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/snapshot/aur-34c7674a0572f48dd22484770c5e6e4eed0fc20d.tar.gz

Click "View Changes" on the right to download any version, this is possible because AUR is a git repository now. Just checkout that version or click on the link above, same goes for the other updated packages.

At this moment I don't see any reason to place this in a separate package as I said before, this is still infinality and all your settings still apply. This is referred to as the 'ultimate' or 'bundle', all that means is that it has the ultimate profile pre-applied, which you can still change to see fit. All your previous settings you did are _still_ used. See /etc/profile.d/infinality-settings.sh.

@ventialdopje, I know it's unmaintained but this and the ultimate were not the same thing. Had a different configuration, custom presets etc.. As yet anoher unmaintained linux package it wasn't bothering anyone. You should have created a seperate aur package for the ultimate.

Because it is no longer maintained since 2013 and bohoomil keeps it up to date now. If you look on the wiki or on his site you'll find he also keeps a binary repository. You're free to use that, personally I prefer to build from source. This is the very latest fontconfig :)

*infinality.net

Why are we abandoning the author's (infinality.com) version and upgrading to bohoomil's version?

@Marcel_K, have a look at freetype2-infinality's /etc/profile.d/infinality-settings.sh. You can still customize infinality the way you are used to like as with the old patches.

@Marcel_K it does indeed not provide the outdated patches as they weren't up to date for newer fontconfig versions. As far as I know this package provides the same kind of patches and customization.

If it's really a thing, I'd be happy to change the name and revert this package (fontconfig-infinality) to it's original shape.

Also, this package (and freetype2-infinality) does not provide the original infinality patches, as its name suggests: those are stalled at a 2013 version.

I think it's better to name the new version infinality-ultimate, like the packages in the custom repository: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Infinality#Custom_repository

@graysky, no offence taken! Either the previous package had the same problem or something else fucks it up. Anyway, I fixed it and will upload it in a minute :)

It's a Git repository, nowadays, so you can just clone it and check out a previous version.
