There should be nothing to get/be confused about. Virtually with all
software a stable version will sometimes go ahead the beta one, which
in turn brings mixed opinions with certain packages in AUR between the
maintainer and others whether the package should be updated or not.
It's happened a few times when the maintainer has claimed that his
package should only follow beta releases - which is not correct unless
specifically mentioned in the pkgdesc or the pkgname. Well anyways,
the dev(/canary) channel(s) will always be newer than beta/stable

Also, no need to cover you being wrong by saying you are confused or anything.

    Thanks for your time,
