Please realize that this is a git package and as such follows the guidelines from https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_package_guidelines. In particular it makes use of the pkgver() function. This means that once it downloads the LATEST version of the source code from the git repository, it will update the version number of the package automatically. There are two consonances to this:
-the good part is, that when there is a new version pushed to git, you can just run makepkg again the package will "automagically" change the version and include the latest git source
-the bad part is that on the aur website and in aur helpers (yaorut & co.) the package always shows the original version used aka. it looks outdated. Also in the helpers you don't get the benefit of being able to automatically update, since the version does not noticeably change.

In an event of a major bugfix or version change the package version might be bumped up for the benefit of the helper users. But in general you should expect needing to manually rebuild the package. At least until (if ever) a better system for addressing this issue can be discovered.

Right now it builds version v0.9.3.c9b74a765767.r0.g3cbb433-1. Package version in AUR description is different.

6a0a79182ebc.r2.ga418f60 runs great on my system too.

None. As far as I can tell, the package builds to the latest git commit a418f60b7498c4e9d2f92f4048855003d38b5f4f , or at least it does on my system. If anyone experiences any issues please let me know.
