Hi Rich, I maintain the SBo build of Brave and I can't understand what 
you're describing.

The version on SBo is 1.51.118 which is (today) the current stable 
release. The download links are ok, and once installed, the "about" 
window shows the correct version. The version numbers match in the *info 
and *SlackBuild files.
