Chrome on linux is now a rolling release or what ?

Dennis Ideler said...

Should it say "Linux Stable was updated to 28.0.1500.70"?

Eric Ahnell said...

I have absolutely no idea why Google promoted 28 to Stable for Linux early. This baffles me as much as it does the rest of you.

All Flash videos were broken in version 28.0.1500.70 due to Google using Flash ver. 11.8. r800.
In this update Google has downgraded Flash to ver. 11.7.700.225.

Here i have Flash 11.7.700.203.
And here comes no update. :(

Yet again no tarballs after 29.0.1547.1. None for 28.0.1500.70 either.

This is the second time in a short period that tarball generation has been broken for days.

Unreliable.

Any idea where one can report the downtime of source tarball generation? Tough to stay current without code :p

There's a thread for the missing tarballs in the chromium-packagers forum.

When will the V.28 of Chrome (stable) be released for OS X?

Rafael Hilário said...

When available 28 final version of Google Chrome? Is a very long delay for several beta channel update and no update to the stable channel.

Eric Ahnell said...

Luca and Rafael, tomorrow marks 6 weeks since the last major stable channel update (May 21). I'd expect something soon.

Rafael Hilário said...

Thank you for information Eric Ahnell. I'll wait until tomorrow.

Although I catch your drift Eric, it will be 7 weeks tomorrow, not 6.

Judging by the fact that the last beta was released almost a week ago (and Linux beta was .89) I think we'll all probably see one more beta. It would be inconsistent to promote the exact same beta after a full week's testing, usually it's just 24-48 hours for the GM to go from beta to stable. I imagine that because this is the first release with Blink, Google want everything to be perfect.

I think it would be cool for the Chrome team to be more open about when Chrome will be releasing, like Mozilla are with Firefox. It will probably be easier after this release when Chrome is solely on Blink I imagine.
