So has google officially dropped support for the older Chromebooks?

Is it possible that the old samsung chromebooks has already loost the support from google?

I think it's because the new Chromebook runs on a Arm chip, so there might be separate builds for Arm and Intel chips.

This update excludes the new Chromebook: http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/2012/11/beta-update-for-chrome-os.html

I guess that the Chrome OS developers are really busy ironing out the bugs of Chrome OS on the ARM CPUs. It's not a trivial task to switch the underlying CPU architecture.

And since the new ARM Chromebook is so successful there is lots of pressure on the developers to remove the bugs on the new Chromebook first.

We, the users of the Intel-based Chromebook should/could be happy to have a stable platform to work on. I am not missing anything essential using stable instead of beta. I am just missing the better trackpad support of Chrome 23 on my Chromebox with Chrome 21.
