There was a change to Jabref that renders the jar file essentially useles. I wasn't aware of that change until recently, and there's no working solution available yet. The Jabref developers plan to provide a nightly release (like the jar file up to now) in a different format (e.g. deb packages). Once that is running, I will update the PKGBUILD.

Hi deisi,

Jabref has shifted from Java 8 to Java 11 a couple of days ago. I'm still testing the new version with java11-openjfx instead of java8-openjfx. Once I can confirm that everything's working, I will release a new PKGBUILD.

Thanks! I'll keep that in mind.

I asked in #archlinux. The best way to handle this in general, I think, would be an option to request deletion of spam users (alike the request for deletion of individual packages).

Rhinoceros commented on 2019-08-24 09:29

How did the spam get deleted? AFAIK there is no way to report/delete spam in the AUR [a]?

Ah got it. Thank you for the clarification.

jabref-git builds Jabref from the git sources, jabref-latest uses the latest prebuilt development snapshot.

What is the difference between this package and jabref-git? Normally the "latest master version from git" is just named *-git.
