The package now uses the system electron2. Therefore it is now a dependency of this package. Don't worry about the additional size of the new dependency, because this package lost most than 120M of size itself!

Spell checking now uses the system hunspell dictionaries instead of using the ones provided by upstream. This is a breaking change and you need to install the desired hunspell-* packages to re-enable spell checking. Again, this is a zero sum game, the size gained by installing system hunspell dicts is lost through removing the package dicts.

Next upstream rocketchat-update is likely to use electron3, so don't worry about electron2 being somewhat a waste of space if you have electron installed also. It's gone soon.

As always, report problems.

I decided against leaving this package broken. As a temporary solution the yarn.lock Lockfile will be ignored.

Waiting for

Also had to patch the package.json due to (another) broken dependencie concerning electron-updater. I quickly tested it on my home machine and it seems to work.

Everything is a mess.

God have mercy

Hi je-vv, yes, it's broken now. But I can't fix it that easily because it's an issue somewhere else. (this whole event-stream drama)

I reported it upstream and will update as soon as it's fixed upstream. I would really like to patch it myself, but I'm not an expert and will probably break something else if I try to.

Thanks a lot @matthias.lisin, as I had the menu bar hidden, I didn't notice the setting, :). But the tray is working as you mentioned. And now with 2.14.3-1 the versioning is fine !

@je-vv All the displayed package versions should now display properly. Tray Icon should still work, activate it via View -> Tray Icon

The details in this URL shows 2.14.2-2, but the latest snapshot, as well as the latest changes commit here, latest-commit, just point to package release 1, not 2, so I guess, the package details don't match what's in latest PKGBUILD, neither what gets downloaded with latest snapshot?

Also, 2.14.2-1 doesn't load the icon on the tray, which I really miss... Should that be flagged upstream, or is it something in the packaging?

Todays update only fixes the Node 11 build problem. This will be be fixed in upsteam starting 2.14.2. I decided to skip 2.14.1 which contains a but that renders rocketchat unusable, and I'll skip the 2.14.2-beta.1 as well since it's a beta and I don't want to heavily edit the PKGBUILD because hyphens are not allowed in pkgver.

Hi notification-receivers,

Waiting for this issue to be resolved before updating to 2.14.1, or 2.14.2, depends if the fix will result in a new version.


Edit: So I could update to 2.14.1 and fix the building issue by upadting natives to 1.1.6, but it's totally not worth it because this release has weird issues with tray icon and closing the application on Linux. It's fixed upstream, but I'd rather wait for 2.14.2 before updating this package. Thanks for reading.
