Stable Channel Update

The Stable channel has been updated to 21.0.1180.81 for Linux, 21.0.1180.83 for Windows and Chrome Frame and both Beta and Stable channels have been updated to 21.0.1180.82 for Mac and 

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)
  • Setting and unsetting display:none obliterates current scroll position (issue: 140101)
These builds also have a new version of Flash with security and other fixes. More information can be found here.

If you find new issues, please let us know by filing a bug at http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/entry

Just look at the "http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/".
The "Chrome (Pepper-based Flash Player)" is fully updated.
Stop thinking with the FF's mind.

Denis Gorchakov said...

Mr.Unknown, Chrome includes 2 different versions of Adobe Flash - common NPAPI gcswf32.dll (this one wasn't updated to a secure version) and PPAPI pepflashplayer.dll, which has been updated.
That's the problem.

Sophie said...

Denis, sorry about the previous "unknown".
In this case, 'pepper' update (what exactly is a security layer) makes the "gcswf32.dll" updating unnecessary in Chrome.
Or am I mistaken?

Liverpool21 said...

@ Sophie

it depends, not yet completely sure, how they run together when both turned on.

Also some people turn of pepper flash as there is still a bit of instability with it.

Denis Gorchakov said...

@Sophie, if common Flash (gcswf32.dll) is still shipped with Chrome, it should also be up-to-date.

Look, it's all in one Adobe security bulletin, http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb12-19.html

Users of Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.271 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh should update to Adobe Flash Player 11.4.402.265.
Flash Player installed with Google Chrome will automatically be updated to the latest Google Chrome version, which will include Adobe Flash Player for Windows and Linux
As Chrome includes both of them, so both of them should be updated.

I guess we'll see some response from Google in a short time ...

If I disable PepperFlash works fine for me.

Youtube still unusable, stutters like hell

Johnathon said...

Looks like ongoing bugs in the stable channel are forcing stable and beta together. Compatibility with the new TLS 1.1 and ongoing pepper flash issues. Temporary workaround is to disable pepper flash (about:plugins disable PPAPI), but remember to enable it at a later date for security reasons.

The gtk3 titlebar issue is still here! Can you guys please get on this?

Unknown said...

My problems are a bit harder to explain since I'm not 100% fluent with programming...... but for some reason my interface of Google+ and Gmail make it seriously inconvenient to use Chrome. I can't make a comment, create a post, or navigate through the profiles or pages because the links don't work. Gmail chat statuses don't pop-up and I can't create or join hangouts. I filed a bug report within chrome and sent screenshots twice but I did not file a report on Chromium because I do not have the time.

For these reasons I'm going to temporarily use Internet Explorer 9 until these get resolved. I know they will; everyone seems to be narrowing the problems down to Flash.

why is chrome canary flash player lower version than stable 0.o

John Deker said...

I still have to disable the Pepper Flash plugin. Still getting 25% CPU usage on 64-bit quad-core Win7 with it enabled. I tried disabling the other Flash plugins & leaving Pepper Flash enabled, but that didn't solve high CPU usage. Only by disabling Pepper Flash plugin does problem go away.

pepper flash still doesent hardware decode (can test this in youtube by right clicking on playing video and show info). I have ati 4550 (switchable) on hp tm2 laptop. I have to manually disable it everytime chrome updates.

Alexander Shtuchkin said...

I'm getting the same problem as John Deker. Please, solve it somehow, it should be easily reproducible.

Arran said...

I've had to downgrade. Pepper Flash is an ambombination. Drop it. The latest versions have totally buggered systems which I've FINALLY got users to start using Chrome. Drop this, seriously!!!!

Nardon said...

I am having some huge issues with Pepper Flash on Ubuntu.. now I am glad that it's there because Adobe doesn't support Linux anymore and using Google Chrome is the only way to get an up to date Flash player..

But with YouTube I am having some issues that it basically makes the whole page useless when Flash is started, you can't do anything on the page like posting a comment.
