Before reporting the package as out of date, please note that the newer GitHub release you're looking at belongs to the "Release Channel" and isn't marked as prerelease.

I have a cron running that's checking every 30 minutes if there's a new release and sends me an email if so. If you see the release was tagged in the last couple of hours please give it some time before flagging. Thanks.

NOTE: Also please take into account a stable version may be "released" but not marked as ready for a long time.

To disable the message telling "that you're using an unsupported command-line flag --no-sandbox" you must enable user namespaces with sysctl:

sudo sysctl kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1

To make it persist after reboot:

echo kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 1 | sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/00-local-userns.conf

In vorbote PKGBUILD line 33:

(-) install -D -m0644 "$startdir"/app.png "$pkgdir"/usr/share/pixmaps/brave-browser-bin.png
(+) install -D -m0644 "$startdir"/src/app.png "$pkgdir"/usr/share/pixmaps/brave-browser-bin.png

Allows me to build brave-browser-bin.

@vorbote yeap, Brave since v0.15 isn't usable but it was before.

@kozaki that's a weird one! I just cleaned up my build dir, redownloaded everything and I got an installable package without errors. (Now, if only brave worked! It's nice in my tablet. Soon, I hope.)

Nice news! Though there's something missing here:
