I use Linux Manjaro, because its package manager allows one to install latest development of sagemath very easily by just clicking a button.

The package manager builds latest development sagematch from sources from AUR (ArchLinux User repository):

And it used to be that AUR is updated at same time as a new version of sagemath shows up on this page

But it has been more than one week and AUR is still showing older 8.3.rc3, while sagemath is now at sage-8.4.beta0

Any one knows how this process works, and why this time the latest development version does not show on AUR?

The version number displayed on the AUR page for git (and other SCM packages) is completely irrelevant. You will always get the latest git code upon installation.

That said, please read the pinned comment on the AUR package page if you plan to use this.

Note that @arojas is the maintainer of the SageMath packaging for Arch Linux!
