I am sorry for the delay, but I find myself really busy these months.

Version 6.0 is a major version bump, thus the just increasing the number and rebuild might not be sufficient.

I will appreciate if anyone wants to co-maintain this package with me.

Thank you for your out-of-date report. However I found that the ARM version is not ready yet.
Do you think it is okay to drop ARM package temporarily? Or wait for it to release?

Also, are you willing to be the co-maintainer of this package?

Renaming might introduce compatibility problems: other scripts/programs calling RealVNC might expect "vncviewer". I can not guarantee it would work after a rename.
I think it would be better to maintain two "flavors" of RealVNC. But I'm afraid I can't afford the time to maintain a second flavor. Could you please maintain a separate package with file names changed?

It's really unfortunate that this package conflicts with tigervnc. At work, I have some servers that require RealVNC (other viewers cannot connect because of the proprietarty RealVNC encryption) and some that are incompatible with RealVNC (they require TLS which is unsupported in RealVNC in favor of their proprietary encryption). Could tou please rename the vncviewer binary and the desktop file to allow for parallel installation?
