VLC is already updated.

It is currently in staging.

it is a non-trivial change, and there were other bugs that had to be
resolved during the update.



Yes, sometimes even Arch Linux takes longer than 47 minutes after an
upstream release to update packages. Two weeks for a major version
update that changes lots of dependencies including a move from Qt4 to
Qt5, *and* provides libraries against which *other* packages need to be
rebuilt? Yeah, this takes time.
