Dev Channel Update for Chrome OS

The Dev channel has been updated to 22.0.1215.0 (Platform versions: 2650.0.0) for Chromebooks (Acer AC700, Samsung Series 5, and Cr-48). This release contains functional and stability improvements.

Highlights of these changes are:
  • UI improvements on start and lock screens
Known issues:
  • 32909 - Purchasing additional data for a Verizon 3G account is currently not functioning. Workaround: Contact Verizon to purchase additional data.
  • 32766 - Cr-48 machines will go through the out of box sign-up experience after this update, however all data and settings on the machine will be preserved.
  • 32906 - Cr-48 machines fail to save new users where the new user is created and the system is not restarted prior to the next autoupdate. Workaround: After creating a new user, reboot the system and check that the user still exists.
  • 32922Connected hidden network is unavailable immediately after resume. Workaround: Wait several seconds for the network to become available.
  • 32923OpenVPN with no-OTP does not allow login with a correct username/password.

I just have a suggestion for this blog, it would be cool whenever there was a UI change to see the way it used to look to the way it looks now. I mean major tweaks are apparent but minor ones would be interesting to see.

I have been required to do an OOBE on every reboot. Perhaps this will be fixed in the next update. Is there any way to downgrade channels meanwhile (Preferably to the dev release 19.xx because of it's 64 bit capabilities.)

i've had trouble with outbound calls on google voice since this update. And a LOT of others are too. The forums are really heating up on the issue.

of course i don't know if this update is the issue, since i can't find anything in it that is relevant, or even when it was issued. But the dates on the comments tell me that it happened at the same time that my perfectly wonderful google voice service stopped recognizing my audio equipment (even though nothing else is having problems), and now will not recognize that i have installed the plugin a number of times, but to no avail.

I'm on a first gen. Samsung Series 5 Chromebook and even after this update I am forced to go through the entire sign-up process everytime I restart my computer
