Non-Manjaro packages which have been flagged as needing an update

Are you lost? Discord is in the Arch community repo as already mentioned. It's an Electron app, so installing it ahead of a Manjaro stable update will do no harm. However, with a lot of other applications there could definitely be an issue doing so. In that regard, you have a very valid point.

FYI, I maintain over 100 (I lost count) AUR packages with mostly no issues using Manjaro testing.

...and we're getting too much into a discussion in a thread where that's considered off-topic.

If necessary, @jonathon or @dalto could split this into a #general-discussion topic.

android-tools (29.0.5-2) is out-of-date
It's r29.0.6 now
https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools

You can flag it out-of-date here:

https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/android-tools/

However, I don't see any reference to 29.0.6 on the page you linked to? The latest version under Revisions is 29.0.5.

Thank you very much!

The download version is 29.0.6-6198805

repo comes from google but I think it is packaged by arch?
This is at 2.3-1 and says 2.4 is out, not sure how to flag it out of date?

hplip-3.20.2 is not working. Installation for plugin fails with missmatch checksum/corrupted file.
Manual installation of ppd could not detect ppds, blank file. Had to downgrade to previous version, need a working printer.
HP provides hplip-3.20.3

Which is now in testing.

I think it is fixing a printing problem I recently noticed in stable (but I need to do more testing before I post there):

Edit: Fix confirmed: "Can't detect file type" and "Filter failed" Errors on HP LaserJet Professional P1102 after Manjaro 19.0.2 update

Seamonkey is out-of-date.
The latest version is 2.53.1
http://www.seamonkey-project.org/start/

Our version is 2.49.4

Also, please, please, provide languages packs for seamonkey, as they are provided for thunderbird, firefox and palemoon

seamonkey is not a Manjaro-specific package, it is packaged by Arch. It was flagged out of date in September last year: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/seamonkey/
It seems that no package maintainer wants to maintain the package or has enough time to maintain it. If no maintainer is found, I guess it will be dropped soon.

The new update appeared after three years!

codeblocks is a package that comes from upstream Arch, it's not packaged by the Manjaro team.

It's flagged as out-of-date in Arch since 2020-03-29:
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/codeblocks/

I guess that at some point it will get updated to the latest version in Arch and it will find its way to Manjaro.

arc-gtk-theme 20190917-1 is out of date and the repository has been archived by the owner.

Btw there is a fork by jnsh if you mind.

arc-gtk-theme is an Arch community package and 20190917 is the latest release. They may switch to jnsh's fork it when the project matures, see FS#65901. If you want to use the fork in the meantime, there is an AUR package, arc-gtk-theme-jnsh-git.

So Liferea had released an update a while ago. The version in the repos is currently 1.12.7, so is there anything blocking it from getting updated? Thanks

That comes from Arch.

It looks like it has been flagged out-of-date since March.

Teamspeak 3 client is outdated, I'm not sure if I should report it here though. It is in community repo.

teamspeak3 is an Arch community package, not a Manjaro-specific package. It's already updated and is currently in the Manjaro unstable and testing branches. You'll see it in the next stable update.

Chromium in Manjaro is still version 81, while on Arch it's 83 like it should

chromium is an Arch extra package, not a Manjaro-specific package. It's currently in the Manjaro unstable and testing repos:
https://manjaro32.org/repo-compare/extra.html

Please see:

Shouldn't high risk packages like browsers be pushed more rapidly. I know firefox is, why isn't chromium too?
