If you'd like the old PKGBUILDs to keep working and not 404, please upvote this issue asking Signal team to not delete old packages:

I think it would be a good idea if this package would have a provides and conflicts with signal-desktop-bin in the PKGBUILD.

The deb file gives a 404 error.

Use this PKGBUILD for latest beta (September 7):

v1.11.0-beta.3 is a security fix, please upgrade.

@andres: I'll try reducing dependencies for the next release.

It would be really convenient if this package was a drop-in replacement for signal-desktop-bin when testing out bug fixes. Currently, signal-desktop-beta-bin has more dependencies -- does it need them? Similarly, a /usr/bin alias such as could be convenient but whether that is something for a PKGBUILD to add is a separate question.
