Update requests for packages imported from Arch Linux

Alright, it’s just a matter of time then. Thanks for the link!

The rapid-photo-downloader creator has done an update, but it doesn’t appear in the Manjaro apps…can you do that please? for the version 0.9.30 (Not sure if i should post this here :stuck_out_tongue: still new in Linux)

0.9.30 just released on March 1. Also the package is directly inherited from Arch which also has 0.9.29-1. So…wait.

Some links

Rapid Photo Downloader

Arch Linux - rapid-photo-downloader 0.9.29-1 (any)

Manjaro - Branch Compare

I am the developer of Rapid Photo Downloader. I have flagged the package as out-of-date on Arch. Version 0.9.30 fixes a bad bug that will hit all users of 0.9.29 whose locale is not English.



The below might help in the future when it comes to packages (see first post of this topic).

To find a package version and packager:

  1. If not installed, check sync database (/var/lib/pacman/sync): pacman -Si rapid-photo-downloader
  2. If installed, check installed database (/var/lib/pacman/local): pacman -Qi rapid-photo-downloader
  3. If need to check AUR too: pamac search rapid-photo-downloader
  4. Or use pamac GUI

Note: Your local version of the package may be different than any online search at Manjaro or Arch if the sync database has not been updated to the recent update.

To find a package version online, what state it is on Manjaro’s branches, the state of Manjaro’s mirrors, and if applicable, the package status at Arch:

  1. Compare package version on branches (unstable, test, stable): https://manjaro.org/branch-compare/
  2. Status of Manjaro’s mirrors: https://repo.manjaro.org/
  3. Package search at Arch: https://archlinux.org/packages/
  4. AUR Package search at Arch: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages

Spyder requires (‘mccabe<0.7.0,>=0.6.0’) but mccabe is 0.70, hence the package won’t start

This issue is already reported in arch bugtracker:

Also the package is flagged as out of date:

Hopefully someone between Manjaro Team can push a fix for this package

Stable repo:
Name : spyder
Version : 5.2.0-2

Thunderbird is now on version 91.6.2-1.
It includes important security fixes, thx to limitations in this forum I can’t post links, but you can look it up in the official changelogs.

There is no need to request updates for Firefox, Thunderbird or Chromium. They are normally fast tracked as they become available.

See Manjaro - Fresh & Stable


Hi, can you please update rapid-photo-downloader for the most recent version? it has already more than a week…thank you.

0.9.31-1 is already in unstable. If it’s urgent for you then you could temporary switch to unstable branch, update and then return to your current branch. Usually, this is safe.

Both Arch and Manjaro Unstable have 0.9.31-1. You can either wait more time or switch branches.


Click “Donwload From Mirror”

Then install from Pamac. There is option to install local package. And then put to ignore update of this package in pamac, otherwise it downgrades. After the actual update arrives, you can remove this ignore.

(Sorry for my English. I’m still learning.)

Please update Unpaper to version 6.1-9 to fix a critical bug in several dependent packages.

It’s available in unstable and testing:

If you need the latest version really badly, you can always switch to one of those branches.

Newer versions of openjdk seem to include important security fixes, among them 17.0.3.u7-2.
See CVE-2022-21449.

Maybe you could prioritize the new releases, to be included in stable as well.

One suggestion, could we at least get a response, even if you don’t think that requests are severe enough?

Doesn’t this cover it… Manjaro Branch Compare openjdk

@stargazer I don’t know whether the point-up emoticons under your response are already meant to point to the explanation in the first post, but to explain this in text:
This thread has a purpose, which is to request for existing package updates to be prioritized, which means that instead of waiting for weeks or even months until they arrive in the “stable” branch, they arrive “now”.
This is useful or even necessary for security fixes and maybe other fixes for bugs that break functionality.

The branch compare shows only the status right now, which is a useful first step to inform yourself, but it is not what this thread is about.

Would probably make sense to change the thread title to “Fast-track requests…” :man_shrugging:
