Emacs 25.1 is not yet released, but will be soon. The second release
candidate is currently being prepared. The version of emacs in extra is the
current stable release, and will probably be updated once 25.1 is out.

If you want to try emacs 25.1 on Arch you can build it youself from the AUR
package emacs25-git.
