The updates for community/dolphin-emu do not follow the beta release schedule used by Dolphin Emulator.
This can cause issues with Netplay, as the same version is needed between users, restricting Arch users from playing with users of other distros or operating systems.

Dolphin Emulator's betas are released every 1-4 months, so it isn't too high-frequency compared to the current rate of updates done by the maintainers of this package.

This is an extremely minor issue, but one easy to fix with a wide impact across users.

Would be nice if the dolphin team could tag their beta versions. In any case the latest update is the latest beta, I'll try to stick to those from now on.
