Also, the More Apps button in the launcher is on the left now. Small change, but I like it.

Just encountered a major bug on my Samsung Chromebook. While two-finger scrolling on basically any web page, as it loads: as soon as you let off and page starts to decelerate, it flickers and blinks insanely. It's so bad it's making me nauseous.

Great update! Scrolling on my Samsung ARM Chromebook is better than it ever has been. Even Google+ is scrolling smoothly! Keep up the great work!

Has anyone else not received this update yet? I switched back to stable from the beta channel this past Thursday, and I am still on version 29.0.1547.74...

Same here, I have even switched out of dev mode to see if it was a secure boot issue. That turned out to be a waste of time. No matter what I do I can't get it to update. The update system seems pretty shoddy. They either need a manual way to update the chromebook direct to download, or they need to fix the update manager. Either way, this incremental push / OTA system is pretty poor and leaves users like you and me scratching their head. There is no reason to push out updates likes this, none at all

And today is October 26th and both my Acer C7 Chromebooks are on v29 and say I'm up to date.

How does this rollout thing work? If v30 was released to stable 12 days ago, what gives? Is there some command to force an update?

I'm on the samsung chromebook and I just got the update installed about 5 minutes ago. Seems as though they're still rolling it out.
