You're correct in that it's still a release candidate and B1 will be the official release.

Please remove the dependency on libconfig, it is no longer required.

@WeenieHut: I've unflagged the package as the B1 series is just a set of rc tags atm and not marked as a release yet. Since the repo has been using explicit releases I'm still assuming B1 will become one as well and I will update accordingly when it does.

EDIT: Actually, I hadn't noticed the main website change yet and it shows the RC ones as the main downloads atm. I will update the package.

EDIT2: Updated

Heads up: this release (a12) of looking-glass won't build against the current version (0.12.15) of spice-protocol because looking-glass was using a deprecated header file that was removed in spice-protocol commit 334cef5. This wasn't fixed until LookingGlass#126 was merged in.

Unfortunately, the current PKGBUILD (version a12-1) will remain broken until a) a new upstream release or b) we backport that fix. Here's a PKGBUILD patch for b)

It completes install just fine without any headers; it doesn't depend on headers, 'looking-glass-module-dkms' depends on DKMS. In turn, you do need kernel headers for DKMS to do anything but that does not have to be 'linux-headers'. It depends on your system what headers are needed. Maybe you even need several if you run multiple kernels. You can install those at any point in time and DKMS will (re-)build all installed modules at that time, including this one. Also see

This package also requires "linux-headers". Without, does not complete install.

For a12 the build system changed to CMake, so to update the PKGBUILD change the version to a12, update the sha512sums, add cmake to makedepends and replace the build-block by

build() {
    mkdir -p "LookingGlass-${pkgver}/client/bin"
    cd "LookingGlass-${pkgver}/client/bin"
    cmake ../
