New version, simply change version nums: 6,7c6,7 < pkgver=0.7.2.r852.g031c5ce4 < pkgrel=4

pkgver=0.8.0.r14.g3387014f pkgrel=1

Hey, thanks for noticing. I replaced the dependency by dzen2-xft-xpm-xinerama-git. They are all optional dependencies. There were some problems with the released dzen2 version that were fixed in dzen2-git (e.g. clickable areas for, and that's why herbstluftwm-git suggest installing dzen2-git.
