it isn't compiling for me due to quazip (regardless of whether it is installed or not), so I disabled it at compile time and it works, my PKGBUILD

I saw that the dev said a month ago that quazip would be disabled by default and that it isn't supported on all systems, but I don't know in which systems it is supposed to be supported, so for now, until it is disabled upstream this will do I guess.

Build fails with:
Call Stack (most recent call first):
CMakeLists.txt:27 (include)
CMake Error at cmake/CodeCoverage.cmake:126 (MESSAGE):

Please add lcov to dependencies, thanks!

The effective version of so-called "VCS packages" like nomacs-git, which are providing current development versions, is derived at build-time by function pkgver() of PKGBUILD. So there's no need to keep variable (!) pkgver up-to-date all the time.
To my knowledge the only convenient way to acquire a version at build time which is stating both the latest release and the current snapshot is to use git command 'describe' which needs annotated tags.
Upstream nomacs doesn't seem to use annotated tags but lightweight ones. This yields the apparently outdated versions which made you flag this package out-of-date. Note these do state the correct commit. If you still think versions like '' are desirable you have to ask upstream to use annotated tags.
