It's already updated in manjaro's unstable branch. Just wait a bit until it arrives in the stable branch too. :slight_smile:

They are both Arch packages, which you can track here https://www.archlinux.org/packages/


To know if a package is built from Manjaro or Arch look at packager field in pamac, if the email address end with @manjaro.org or @archlinux.org

Hedgewars is out of date (0.9.22, 0.9.23 was released on 2017.11.12)
Thx.

Hedgewars is an Arch package and is flagged as out-of-date upstream https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/hedgewars/

OK thx for the answer and sorry, not used to the differences, I'll take a closer look in the future.

In pamac go into package details, look at packager field, if the email address end with @manjaro.org is packaged by a Manjaro team memeber

Hi. I use Manjaro stable and have been satisfied with the smooth updates most times.
I found in Arch Linux site a feature to flag packages as out-of-date, then I flagged Rosegarden 17.04 and they kindly updated it. However it doesn't appear on Manjaro repos yet.
In recent years Rosegarden has been a very stable application and its team has released only 2 or 3 updates a year. So it's very unlikely that Rosegarden will cause any problems in other system components or be hard for packagers to test. I just don't do it myself because I don't know how.
Can you, please, push the Rosegarden 17.12 update that are already available in Arch repos to Manjaro stable updates?
Thanks.

as manjaro is little behind arch.. you will have to wait the next stable update.
or check the wiki to temporarly swith to unstable to update just this package if it won't break because of dependencies

it's just that maybe it was build with libraries that are not yet on stable.. so it may not work.

Not unless it's a security update. Otherwise, they'll be rolled down as normal with the rest of the package updates. If you're impatient, switch to the testing or unstable branches.

Thank you for your answers. Once I used the wiki instructions and installed one package from testing. (I don't recall what package it was but it worked.)
Now I hadn't thought that the package might be in unstable or in testing. But since Rosegarden is not very complaining about dependencies version I decided to do things an easier way.
I went to this site. Browsed the files in the unstable/community repo, found rosegarden 17.12, downloaded it together with the .sig file and then used octopi's "install local package" option.
Rosegarden 17.12 is already running and working and I didn't had to access unstable/testing branches the long way.
Thank you.

Finally, VLC 3.0 has landed in the Extra repository of Arch Linux. Does this change will reflect on Manjaro repos?

:grin:

Wrong section @acutbal, this is for packages built by Manjaro team, for VLC 3 is the usual flow of updates
