The file list is here:
That's a zathura 0.2.7 build for RHEL 7 which is perhaps somewhat old.

I would strongly suggest putting a fallback in for at least *.pdf.
You never know when some overly clever logic is going to fail.

I'd suggest sticking to pattern characters like (...|...) over brace
expansion in the parameter to _files -g. If braces are working, it is by
accident rather than design.

_cmdstring handled a quoted command-line where you might have arguments
to the command. Judging from the example in the documentation, that is
appropriate in this case.
