Stable Channel Update for Chrome OS

The Stable channel has been updated to 38.0.2125.101 (Platform version: 6158.49.0, 6158.56.0) for all Chrome OS devices except Chromeboxes. This build contains a number of bug fixes, security updates and feature enhancements. Systems will be receiving updates over the next several days. Here is a list of Chromium changes.

Some highlights of these changes are:
  • MTP support in the Files app - you can now plug in your Android phone and get files from it
  • We’ve added a set of features to enhance touch screen accessibility

Security Fixes and Rewards
Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.

Below, we highlight fixes that were either contributed by external researchers or particularly interesting. Please see the Chromium security page page for more information.
  • [$27633.70][416449] Critical CVE-2014-3188: A special thanks to Jüri Aedla for a combination of V8 and IPC bugs that can lead to remote code execution outside of the sandbox.
  • [417329] Low CVE-2014-[6271, 7169, 7186, 7187]: Code execution via bash environment variables.

If you find new issues, please let us know by visiting our forum or filing a bug. Interested in switching channels? Find out how. You can submit feedback using ‘Report an issue...’ in the Chrome menu (3 horizontal bars in the upper right corner of the browser).

Advanced options have disappeared from Settings!!
Also, doesn't show OS version anymore,
nor option to check/update - ( chrome://help will still show the version though. - Google trying to hide even more settings from users?)

No, it isn't hidden. You can find it below in the settings if you scroll down to the bottom.

I'm still stuck on version 36 from the beginning of August on my c710. It says that my device is "up to date." Any ideas?

Under version 38.0.2125.101, the contextual analysis of Arabic language and Persian are not working.... i.e., all letters are not connected....

is there a fix?

This is all very good, but have two things that Google CHrome need with urgently: A password to protect data saved login and to prevent other sites from changing the main page and priorities navigation user's.
The Mozilla have this password more only protect the data saved login, so it is incomplete too.

Performed update, now my Chromebook will not let me login. Says my password is incorrect.

I then used my MacBook to login to gmail without any problem to prove my password did not change.

No matter how many times I enter my password correctly into my C710 Chromebook, it will not login. I can login to my mother's account on the Chromebook, just not mine.

My account worked fine before the update.

For what it is worth, I do not use the 2 step verification when signing into a google account.

c710 reset your chromebook if other account is not a admin (if you cant delete your account)

hold Ctrl+Alt+Shift+R and press restart

https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/183084?hl=en-GB

not updating issues RAM may be an issue (put 4GB in my chromebook did but it not like it was preventing update,also crashing when trying to update) HDD can also prevent update if its got bad sectors

is there a way to do a test ram in chromeOS

----- small complaint when i logged into this chromebook (it was on 23 chrome at the time) it wiped all my saved wifi list of my phones which is slightly annoying especially the hard to get wifi passwords -----
