If I may suggest a pain point: arch needs good support for revoking packages and replacing with the previous version if regressions are encountered. Case in point ffmpeg 3.3. 3.2.4 was fine and 2.8.11 is also fine but 3.3's muxer corrupts files. It's not the first instance where I wished for official revoke and replace in the index instead of manual user intervention.
Have you reported the bug? If yes and the dev decides that it should be reverted to a previous version there is a way to do it, see: man pacman | grep -A1 epoch
