Description Sébastien Monassa 2018-04-13 14:29:41 UTC
Last official release 1.5-rc2 is from 26 april of 2016:

But development is going on : Qt5 support merged in master, QtMultimedia audio, Favorites folder, lots of fixes.

Users beg for a release:

Anyway i'm using this live ebuild made from the in tree goldendict-1.5.0_rc2-r2 ebuild, also fixing the locales installation.

Thought it would be nice to have it in the tree.

live ebuild
Comment 2 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2018-04-14 02:38:49 UTC
We could also make a patch release on base of a specific commit ID.

Thank you for your contribution. I had a short look on the ebuild. 
Here a few ideas:

* Please test the ebuild with repoman full -x

* KEYWORDS="amd64 x86" -> KEYWORDS="" for live ebuilds

* You do not need eutils here since EAPI=6

* the ebuild installs icons, and .desktop but does not update

Unfortunately even git master still depends on Qt5WebKit, though.
Comment 4 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2019-04-28 11:45:59 UTC
git master has several Qt 5.12 related crashfixes, this probably justifies a snapshot as upstream appears to have lost interest in release work.

Unfortunately, today it still depends on Qt5WebKit.

goldendict-9999.ebuild logs

So is there any progress ?
Qt 5.12.3 is stable now. And goldendict affected by this (fixed in main tree)

also, goldendict-9999 ebuild is broken
Comment 6 Oruriz 2019-07-28 10:56:32 UTC
+-line 80 

src_configure() {
+	local myconf=(./
-	local myconf=()
	use ffmpeg || myconf+=( DISABLE_INTERNAL_PLAYER=1 )

	eqmake5 "${myconf[@]}"

fixed ebuild for me (not sure it's correct way to make it work).

Updated ebuild from the latest 1.5.0_rc2-r2. And changed to make it use the today's git commit instead of the latest.

Comment 8 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-02-17 00:10:14 UTC
git master still depends on Qt5WebKit.
Comment 9 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-10-23 13:14:04 UTC
We should consider last-riting the package.
