Beta Channel Update


ETA: We've updated the Beta channel for Windows only to 21.0.1180.83. This fixes issue 143434 but brings back issue 140101.

The Beta channel has been updated to 21.0.1180.81 for Mac, Linux, Windows and Chrome Frame

This build fixes the following issues:

  • Duplex Printing defaults to Yes, which prints extra pages even for a 1 page print out (Issue 138312).
  • Print preview takes forever on Win XP (issue: 140044)
  • Anti-DDoS inversion of logic (Issues: 141643141081)
  • Pepper Flash: in file uploads, treats HTTP status != 200 as failure, breaking (e.g.) uploads to Amazon S3 (Issue: 140468)
  • Projectmanager.com application causes Flash to hang (Issue: 141018)
  • Turn off TLS 1.1 in Chrome 21 Stable (Issue: 142172)
  • An additional scroll bar appears at the right on many sites (issue: 140239)
  • Setting and unsetting display:none obliterates current scroll position (issue: 140101)
If you find new issues, please let us know by filing a bug at http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/entry

Memory for Gmail just only using pepper flash looks a lot better this release.

still checking but pepper flash by itself is not rendering games on pogo.com completely right as of right now. It was fine in the previous releases.

I think there might be another issue with crbug.com/140239

Please see crbug.com/143434

I didn't have the two scroll bars but now after updating Chrome, I'm seeing a black bar next to the scroll bar.

Still getting garbled or missing characters when printing webpages that use webfonts.

https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=143617

This problem has only recently occured in the last build or so and until this update, also affected documents in GoogleDocs that used webfonts.
