FYI again : back t oelecton 6 beta (better chromium version), fixed the issues of previous releases.

FYI : rolling back to electron 5.0.0-bat6, because ... more recent versions dropped some features. I'll have to adapt things differently.

WARNING : You may need to uninstall/clean reinstall, due to change in numbering scheme (to match upstream prpoject which I now own), and force electron update from beta to official

I see lots of problems with it ... so if it occurs to you too, please be patient.

New release includes electron runtime (5.0.0-beta.6) AND and fork of original repo which FIXES the search (Ctrl K) feature in the client.

Good news : the search works again with electron 5.0.0-beta6

So ... should be allright for everyone soon enough. edit : but breaks tayicon color changes. Stay tuned

Quick word foor AUR maintainers : upstream project is closed, move to a fork of it.

NOTE : since ... (recently ?) , search (or ctrl K + start typing) makes the application unusable (white screen unresponsive). After some tests : issue seems to come from google-chat itself. Tried downgrading electron : same result, whereas it used to work last week, so it's not an electon problem, or this project (which just opens an url in electron) To be continued

damn, sorry about that. Was my first try toying with dependencies. Short story : you can install it safely it works.

TL/DR : This package stil works fine (with systray notif) with latest eletron.

My case is a special usecase where on top of it I do patch electron.asar ... and that's the cause of my issues. (and i fixed it, but really no one cares;) )
