Dev Channel Update

The Dev channel has been updated to 15.0.865.0 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome Frame.

Note: we are doing a performance experiment on Windows only. Some users will get 15.0.865.1000. This version is identical to 865.0 in features but has different optimizations.

  • Updated V8
  • r98474: Fixed some downloads crashers occurring due to over-aggressive consistency checks.
  • Print Preview is working once again.
  • Fixed issue where turning on sync encryption could remove bookmark titles.
  • r98148: When downloading a file with illegal trailing characters in the file name, they are replaced rather than truncated.
Known Issues
  • Angry birds doesn’t load when switching from SD to HD on Mac (Issue: 94629)
Full details about what changes are in this build are available in the SVN revision log.  Interested in switching to the Beta or Stable channels?  Find out how.  If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug.

Great Update - Thank You Google Dev Team!

Is there a way to 'force' the 15.0.865.1000 update using different performance optimizations?

Dan said...

After downloading the update. the bookmark titles are still removed. Will they ever come back without re-bookmarking everything?

koopa said...

Oh beloved bookmark sync, will you ever work again in DEV channel?

Dan said...

I got my bookmarks back. What I did was:
1. Deleted all my bookmarks so it synced to Google and erased it on their server.
2. Exited Chrome
3. Restore my Bookmarks file in the Application Support area on my Mac through Time Machine to the file before it was corrupted.
4. Then opened Chrome again, and my bookmarks were restored.

If you restore the file without deleting them, then Google with restore all the bookmarks back to their corrupt state.

So I got the .1000 version with my shitty singlecore AMD Sempron Laptop with 512MB SDRAM?

I see what you did there!

Seems like the 15.0.865.1000 release uses less memory and is generally faster than the previous dev release.

kingscut said...

night_stalker_z it is indeed a big performance increase, the 15.0.865.1000 on my old machine.

great dev update

I'm on windows and have old computer with 512MB of RAM but I got the 15.0.865.0 version how do I get the 15.0.865.1000

This version is very fast!! I'm on a slow laptop, AMD athlon II dual 2.20 ghz / 4 GB ram / Windows 7 64-bit and this is clearly the fastest chrome version I've ever tried...
I'm very curious what you did to make such an improvement in rendering speed... My large city in cityville finally really flies, yea I know that's flash but honestly it ran very sluggish in all the previous versions of chrome... In fact I had to run that game in IE9 since flash games ran much better in IE9 on my machine... Now I can use chrome all the time :)
Great work!!!

Which rel? 15.0.865.0/15.0.865.1000?

Can't get print to work of a Yahoo EMail with this Dev version 15.0.865.0, I get a screen which looks like this screenshot
Anyone else have this problem? Gmail works fine with printing an email, it's just Yahoo for me.

The New Download UI doesn't work on MAC.
Can't see anything and can't accept the downloads and nothing with it.

Kurtextrem said...

@Javiero: same here. I think they're working on it so there is no sense for this flag entry atm :)

Canvas elements (and most likely Flash, but only sometimes) are rendered as transparent elements and I can see whatever is under Chrome window. I'm on OS X 10.7.1. E.g. I can't display sites that use WebGL at all.

Murilo said...

I'm not going to complain about the new page tab... but could you let the bookmarks bar showing in it as opt-in? Not "show always", but "show in new tab" option.

Can you move the bar at the bottom of the homepage tab to the top?
