Description: extra/chromium 6.0.472.53-1 has been flagged as out-of-date for quite a while now.

Version 6.0.472.59 has been released, which means that Arch users have missed out on the 6.0.472.55 version.

I have built 6.0.472.59 successfully on my machine (x86_64) using the same PKGBUILD from http://repos.archlinux.org/wsvn/packages/chromium/repos/extra-x86_64/ just bumping the pkgver value and changing the md5sum so it should be relatively easy to resolve.

"Do NOT report bugs when a package is just outdated, or it is in Unsupported. Use the 'flag out of date' link on the package page, or the Mailing List.

REPEAT: Do NOT report bugs for outdated packages!"

This warning is just a few lines above what you wrote.

This update (and the one missed) fixes a bunch of security flaws:

Google has pushed out another Chrome release, which includes fixes for 10 security bugs, seven of which are rated either critical or high. Google Chrome 6.0.472.59 comes out just 12 days after the last Chrome release, which fixed 14 security bugs
