Some nice news from Arch Linux

Angband has been moved today out of the unofficial AUR repository and into the official Community repository; a repository maintained by Trusted Users only and fully supported and query-able by the Arch Linux packager, pacman.

This pretty much makes Angband immediately accessible to any Arch Linux user with the added guarantee that the package is maintained by a responsible and capable maintainer.

Arch is a bleeding-edge release, meaning only the most recent version of Angband will be available. This does not include nightly builds, but includes non stable releases. Which means, at the time of this writing, Angabnd 3.1.2v2 beta, is the version being distributed. Not the older, but stable, 3.0.9.


NPP Angband has been available in the Extra repository for Arch users for some time, IIRC. It somewhat saddened me the original Angband was not in the official repositories and could only be downloaded from upstream or through the unofficial and unsupported AUR repository. Thanks to Jakob Gruber that is no longer the case. Good work.

Good news. It's also in Debian and Ubuntu official repositories, and Gentoo. I think we just need to get it into Redhat and SuSE for the main distros ...

Wow - good to hear. But who needs the static build when you can have the SVN one in Arch
Personally i wondered all the time why npp was in the repos but not angband. Especially since Angband had over 50 votes.

With 17 *bands Arch is really the best Angband platform around - well, besides Windows where the packages get build by the developers...
Proud candidate for the Angband Darwin Award!

Not to mention it packages development files together with binaries and whatnot, so you can compile stuff without wasting time tracking down dependencies.
