When reporting this package as outdated make sure there is indeed a new version for Linux Desktop. You can have a look at the "Stable updates" tag in Release blog for this.

You can also run this command to obtain the version string for the latest chrome version:

$ curl -sSf | \
     grep -A1 "Package: google-chrome-stable" | \
     awk '/Version/{print $2}' | \
     cut -d '-' -f1

Do not report updates for ChromeOS, Android or other platforms stable versions as updates here.

It might be a good idea to add NetworkManager and BlueZ as optional dependencies, as Chrom(e/ium) use their DBus APIs for geolocation and Bluetooth support respectively.

It seems that Google now has the correct latest version again, so presumably it was a temporary 'glitch'. Anyway this aur package is fine, and all seems well again.

@mike.cloaked The described method is still accurately describing this packages upstream. Strangely it seems like google has downgraded the version in the apt repo ... As I found no announcement nor complaints about major bugs or CVE's I just kept this package it as is, but if someone knows whats up please let me know! :)

Is there any other alternative way to query the current latest version direct from Google?

For a long time running the command: curl -sSf | grep -A1 "Package: google-chrome-stable" | awk '/Version/{print $2}' | cut -d '-' -f1 has given the correct version for current upstream. But today it is giving an output as 116.0.5845.187 whereas the correct current stable version (including in this aur package) is 117.0.5938.62 - so I wonder if this is a temporary failure of Google to update, or if they decided not to update any more?

The Chrome version 117 appears to add support for HEVC and AV1 decode through VAAPI.

system-config-printer should at least be listed in optdepends, as outside of KDE it is the default dialog for managing printers, and some DEs such as XFCE have no fallback option. Otherwise, you get this error in the console: [7294:7319:0911/] Failed to open printer manager dialog Source:

Chrome looks scary now. Almost like multiple screen tears. Degrading version also not working for me. This occurred after upgrading my arch to latest. Anybody facing the same?
