Anyone using arch around here?

Long ago, I was using yaourt to update arch, but now it's been discontinued. There are a dozen different alternatives: wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/A

So, which one works perfectly NOW and won't force me to switch to another tool next year?

@benoit I've narrowed it down to trizen and yay. I'm trying the first one and it's been fine so far (although not smart enough to update the packages I had previously installed via yaourt)

@codewiz @benoit yeah, yay is what I use and it's good
it can also automatically add the keys it needs for the packages so installing libc++ isn't annoying :D
it's decently configurable too

@tromino @benoit [SOLVED] how do I update my damn Arch Linux system?
