I have a question about conky.

The version currently on the official repositories and on my machine as well is `1.10.6_pre` (from`conky --version`). I'm wondering: is this the newest version released ever? On conky's releases page ong Github the latest release is called `1.10.6` - without `pre`.
What is the difference between the two? When I tried to make my edit the original `PKGBUILD` and build the package on my own machine, so that I could be sure I can flag the package as outated, I encountered this error:
This task depends upon

This is not a bug and all the information is actually provided upstream and in our PKGBUILD.

1) The pre comes from upstream, see the CMAKE file

2) Building requires a gcc7 patch, so the bug report you made is probably about GCC 7 compilation. But the patch is missing in the svn repo. See

And don't flag packages out of date because of build issues, it's only for new updates.

The patch was introduced to fix  FS#54223  but I only commited the new PKGBUILD to SVN and never rebuilt the package, so devtools never noticed the missing patch. It's all good now. Cheers.
