Robert Swiecki for president. Keep up the good work! (and the other developers, please drink more coffee)

@joesixgig: +1, I'm voting for Robert :) @Manish: well we could always leave them unfixed if you prefer :P More seriously, the good news is that many of them are being found by internal audits, and it remains very rare for Chromium to take a "Critical" bug. Also note that the Chromium Security Reward program is going very well and resulting in a slight increase in vulnerability load.

@Chris: I did not mean that :(. I really like the security model of Chrome, just that I was wishing for a release which has more new features (like bug 19, 266)..

Sorry for the slightly off-track question: When is a stable build for Linux expected? Why is it taking so long?

Google Wave doesn't seem to be working...

Rajesh: The first stable version for Linux and Mac is supposed to be Google Chrome 5, but there's a number of features planned for that release, so Linux users will still have to wait a while longer.

According to the Chromium Development Calendar (at http://www.chromium.org/developers/calendar ), the stable release date is yet to be decided upon.

But that Chromium is apparently going code complete on April 30, is a good sign. :) As a non-Googler guess from me, I'd say it may go stable sometime this summer? Maybe June? *shrug* But the Betas have pretty good quality these days too.

@Jug: Thank you very much for the very patient explanation! :)
@Mike and Mary Jones: Google Wave is not working for me too.

Google Wave is working for me today in this release. I guess it was an error in Wave, that has been fixed now.

@thinkNsidedabunNOToutsidedabox: I have not had any crashes. And I usually have 8-15 tabs open simultaneously.

Downloaded latest version to try to correct issue but Kapersky still finds the vulnerability in Chrome and also something in Java which I have also updated. What else can I do?

My Windows 7 updated, but my XP laptop stays at 1045 and reports to by uptodate. What might be my problem?

I found this bug after upgrading to this version. On some sites, clicking the middle mouse button leads to the discovery of links, rather than a new tab on this link.

I can't get this version.
Chrome says : is uptodate.

I concur, my Google Chrome will still not update to the latest Stable version despite it being one week old. I'm running Vista.

5:47 AM, April 27, 2010  
Blogger Manish said...

@Chris- Its already more than 10 days that was released, but the bugs are still marked private. Any idea, by when they will be made public? I would assume that by now the latest update must be pushed to majority of users... Is that not the case?

my Chrome on XP jumped up directly to 1064 without 1059
