Before reporting the package as out of date, please note that the newer GitHub release you're looking at belongs to the "Release Channel" and isn't marked as prerelease.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

Just wanted to confirm that the latest update by mixedCase installed properly.

I also wanted to confirm that the fix Cpt_Pi mentioned to get text in the Brave shield works.

Hi now-im, if you're having trouble fixing the build I'm willing to take maintainership of this package since I depend on it. Thanks.

The PKGBUILD file doesn't work in its current incarnation:

==> Removing existing $srcdir/ directory...
==> Extracting sources...
==> Starting prepare()...
chmod: cannot access 'brave/brave': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
Error making: brave-bin

I'm getting this error when trying to install the latest update

chmod: cannot access 'brave/brave': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting...

@miomio - these are issues with Brave.
The no text in Shield and missing translation in Rewards are due to how Brave have been packaging the .tar.gz.
The widevine support is due to Brave currently not supporting Widevine on Linux.

To fix the "No text in Shield and no translation in Rewards" - you have to download the .deb and extract the Resources directory into /usr/lib/brave-bin

The issues I commented about on the 4th are still present: text in the shield missing, and no widevine.
