From VCS package guidelines regarding what to do with version tags:

If tag contains a prefix, like v or project name then it should be cut off...

Also, file names on the releases page do not include the M prefix in version numbers.

Thanks for maintaining this package!

Is there a reason why the icons are named thorium-browser-stable in the PKGBUILD? The .desktop file references thorium-browser so that no icons are displayed:

➜  ~ grep -i icon /usr/share/applications/thorium-browser.desktop

Penryn lacks AVX and AES support. It won't launch on CPUs below Sandy bridge.
