    Chromium 26

    Does anybody knows why Chromium get not updated to release 26?? The release which way have is 25 and there are some CVE's fixed in chromium 26 (http://googlechromereleases.blogspot...update_26.html). As somebody has already filled a bug it would be really great if all chromium users which are at release 25 could click on me too (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1161296).

    I suspect there's some delay because each "new" version has to be modified for the purpose of integrating with the webapps stuff.
    Shortened urls: See point #11 here. And clicking on them could be risky.
    Use ubuntu-support-status with caution.

    Chrome already has 26....chromium does tend to take longer to update to the current stable version...that is why i always prefer chrome over chromium...and also because chrome has it's own built in (and current) flash and a built in pdf reader as well...

    Also, did you add the ppa for Chromium updates? I believe with Chromium you have to do that....Chrome automatically adds a ppa in software sources for updated versions (another reason i prefer Chrome)...

    Chromium 26 was released March 26 (?) - it's not yet available in SUPPORTED repositories.
    When OS is in beta I prefer to utilize supported applications!

    It seems so and users are at the risk do not surf secure the web - it is not a problem to packge chromium myself but as it is a time-consuming task therefore I prefer the update via Ubuntu's update channel. Concerning the additonal repo for Google chrome: you have to add it as the updates come out of Google's update services and not Ubuntu/Canonicals and I prefer chromium as I do not need flash. However thank you for your reply.

    You're Welcome...though i would like to mention to you that i have had 13.04 development installed for 2 months now, and i only use two ppa's on it...

    1) Chrome's PPA (which it added automatically to my sources list) 2) webupd8.org's Oracle Java deb file installer/updater which also installs a ppa for that (i need the real java for one of the apps i use to work properly, open source version doesn't do it)...
    and in neither case have i had any problems from them in updating my development install....so, i think it is safe to use Chromium's ppa if you would prefer quicker updated versions of chromium...
