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.

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 https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Repoman
* 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.
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.

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
+ local myconf=(./goldendict.pro)
- local myconf=()
use ffmpeg || myconf+=( DISABLE_INTERNAL_PLAYER=1 )
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.
git master still depends on Qt5WebKit.
We should consider last-riting the package.
