Dev Channel Update


Note: Chrome Dev Channel has been updated to 15.0.874.5 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome Frame with the same changes as below.


The Dev channel has been updated to 15.0.874.0 for Windows, and Chrome Frame; 15.0.874.1 for Linux; 15.0.874.3 for Mac.

All
  • Updated V8 3.6.0.0
  • Fixed a possible sync crash triggered by encryption of all sync data.
  • The --enable-accelerated-plugins flag was changed to --disable-accelerated-plugins. Pepper Plugins are now accelerated by default.
  • Fixed a crash when deleting cookies from chrome://settings/clearBrowserData.
  • Enable new client-side phishing detection for non-UMA users (previously UMA-only). When local heuristics trigger, sends only limited information that does not identify the page, such as a prefix of the hash of the URL, and other non-identifiable features such as whether you've visited the page before. [r99582]
  • Fixed many known stability issues.
Mac
  • Fixed dragging of apps on NTP [r99110]
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.

Now I have 3 flash versions:

- Chrome flash plugin
- pepflashplayer.dll
My flash enabled version is chrome flash plugin, it's ok?
What's pepflashplayer.dll?

Sorry for my poor english.

Bookmark menu has lost favicons, and they don't come back when revisiting sites. Not a huge problem, to be sure. This is on Lion.

The notification window that appears when trying to install an extension has horribly truncated text.

Facebook page appears broken when is opened; otherwise this version works like a charm.

Rick said...

Huge memory improvement! Unable to install Chrome Web Store apps. Install spins for a few minutes then goes back to "Add to Chrome" button.

Fox E: said...

This update completely broke something for winxp home 3, clicking on the tabstrip background [ie. the titlebar type area] at any time causes the window to freak out and hide itself in some manner. This only happens when the window is maximized; fullscreen and movable windows aren't affected.

The only way to recover the window is to right click &#emdash;> restore / maximize the taskbar button. That doesn't prevent the issue from occurring again, mind, it just happens again when you next click the tabstrip background.

Clicking tabs doesn't cause this, but if you slide a tab all the way to the right and click to its left fast enough, you can hit the tabstrip background and the window will break again.

It started doing this immediately after this update, so it's not like I changed any settings anywhere. Browse normally, update, relaunch, and then suddenly this starts happening.

I want a .1000 version back! Those optimations were great.

Michal said...

Notification pop ups and sound don't work.

Simon Hunter said...

aagghhhh why have you removed profiles?!?!? I was using them loads!

just found out I can turn them back on by visiting - about:flags - but why do this??

DoomedPanda said...

Bring back the god damn floating bookmark bar on the Most Used page...

Lestat said...

I agree with DoomedPanda. Bring it back

Chris said...

I also miss the floating bookmark bar, but they did move the bookmark menu in the wrench further up making it more accessible. Before I got used to the bookmark bar on NTP I used the bookmark menu button on the nav bar (which got axed). Perhaps the moved bookmarks menu in the wrench will suffice as a replacement.

Stuart Memo said...

@Fox E - I've got the same problem. Have submitted a bug report for it here: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=95816

abravorus said...

Crashes frequently under Win XP SP3, no problem under Linux (Debian wheezy)

Riccardo Belletti said...

I'm using windows 7 x64 and it seems that all the extensions stopped working O_o

(I want the compact navigation ui back!)

google/ig: rearchbox is moved to the right, even om clasic page.
img,video searchpage looks ok

livin52 said...

I've got the same problem as Stuart Memo and Fox E. And why did you removed the profiles?

Kurtextrem said...

The Pepper Flash disables itself - http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=95645
Enabled sync causes memory leak - http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=95787

Neko² said...

Damn, I was used to the compact navigation ! :(
And the floating tab bar... seriously guys ?

Now I just need to find a was to revert to before-update chrome...

Kaushal said...

I miss the profiles!! :(

Shadow said...

A great update nonetheless, a huge memory consumption improvement. But, opening the start menu in Windos XP, with Chrome in focus makes it crash.

Marius said...

Function "Stop sync and delete data from Google" doesn't work properly, I still see remaining of the synced account after I delete the sync data from Google Dashboard.

How to check:
Do a sync, deactivate the sync from Google Dashboard by deleting the data, activate the sync with the same account but use a clean profile.

In about:sync(chrome://sync/) "Sync Node Browser) you'll see remaining information from previous sync.

Heinrich said...

With 15.0.874.5 there is V8 3.5.10.5, not 3.6.0.0..
And Flash crashes from time to time.

Rdub said...

I'm having crashes in Windows XP SP3 as well. It look like everything is working, but the screen does not update.

Gideon said...

Chrome flash plugin crashes with 100% reproducibility. Nothing will load. Makes this build unusable on many sites.

OSX Lion 10.7.1 Chrome 15.0.874.5 dev

Gottoon said...

Missing profiles management in options??? That was an awesome simple to manage feature. Sure beat keeping multiple shortcuts for different profiles. Sure there were bugs... but you didn't have to remove it all together.

grachev84 said...

I'm having crashes in Windows XP SP3

Davin said...

If you want profiles back go to chrome://flags and turn profiles back on.

ishmoo21 said...

im getting a green bar and ghosting on youtube videos

mtygringo said...

Unfortunately this dev release is so buggy (crashing/freezing)in Windows XP SP3 I had to switch to the beta channel.

Central Gurdwara Manchester said...

I confirm that Chrome dev with XP Service Pack 3 is a nightmare and keep crashing. However keep up the good work and look forward to the next update as always.
