@artafinde, I'm pretty sure I understood your comment. Just to be clear, I wasn't being negative with my remarks. If that's how it came across, I apologize.

One part I think you might be misunderstanding is what happens when an EAP cycle closes. The package will not become useless. The build version is consistently incremented by Jetbrains devs from EAP, to Release, to the next EAP, and so on. By making the build version part of the pkgver, this package can shadow the main release during the EAP off-cycle. That means that with this package you will always have the latest version, whether it is a official release or an EAP.

Let me know if that helps or if you have any questions. I'm happy to offer any advice/answers that might be helpful.

@lots0logs: I think you misunderstood my comment. As I said I will update if people are interested (which obviously you are!). The package would be useless as the Early Access Program for version 15 will finish when the release is out (or sooner) and the included license will expiry. epoch is now 3

"For me comparing previous pkgver with the newer was enough."

With all due respect, maintaining an AUR package requires you to consider more than just your own needs and workflow.

"which will make this package redundant"

This package never becomes redundant due to the versioning scheme that is in place.

@lots0logs: it was intentional. epoch is a workaround to force pkgver to appear newer when it's not alphanumeric later in order.
@Kendos_Kenlen: I see. I guess it made sense in your case. For me comparing previous pkgver with the newer was enough. Didn't think of the epoch but now it's like a cancer - you can't get rid of it.

We are currently in PublicPreview and quite close to release of 15 which will make this package redundant. If more people are interested I'll add the epoch bit back for the next 15 days or so. As a workaround just download the PKGBUILD and makepkg as normal.

I'm not sure if it was intentional so I thought I would just mention that by excluding the epoch in the PKGBUILD users who already had the pkg installed prior to your last commit will not be notified of an update by yaourt (or any other AUR helpers).

I flagged this as out-of-date by accident, I'm sorry.

BUILD=`curl -s "" | grep "IntelliJ IDEA 15 EAP (build" | cut -d" " -f 6 | tr -dc '[:alnum:]\n\r.'`

The above is working as a hack, how do people normally scrape for versions? Also, package was updated to '142.4245.2'
