@jogdand Pinned deprecation warning here in comments + updated package description to direct people to NG package.

Do not think I should remove this package completely though, as ProtonVPN developers themselves decided to keep protonvpn-cli as is and name a new version protonvpn-cli-ng, which is consistent with how both AUR packages are currently named.

Thank you for pinging me to update the package though :) Merry Christmas!

Deprecated (https://github.com/ProtonVPN/protonvpn-cli#deprecation-warning)

@ddnomad, Can we replace this by 'ng' version. OR atleast, add the deprecation info in description.

I created a separate package for protonvpn-cli-ng, the new Python-based client. Since they are two separate repositories and work completely differently, I figure they should be separate from one another.
