    Hi,

    I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask - does anybody know why there is such an "old" libmediainfo (0.7.34) in the Packman repository?

    http://packman.links2linux.org/package/libmediainfo

    Thx!

    It is not ;-).

    Packman repo is not maintained by MediaInfo developers but by Packman people (and there is no "contract" for maintenance between MediaInfo developers and Packman people), you should ask to the people in charge of Packman (especially the person in charge of this package).

    This issue is due to how is build the responsabilities for Linux distros. Only the person in charge of the package can answer your question. I imagine that the person in charge of this package is not interested anymore to update the package (to be honest, I did not contact him for a long time because I, the main developer, am not interested in spending time for such linux-specific problem, with each distro having a different person in charge. On my side, I maintain packages only for distros supported by OBS https://build.opensuse.org/ ).
