Chromium 12 in Ubuntu

You should now be used to its fast release pace, so it’s probably not a surprise. Chromium 12 has just been released upstream less than 2 hours ago, 6 weeks after Chromium 11. Thanks to a good preparation with the Daily PPA and Dev and Beta Channels, I’ve been able to quickly ship this major Stable release to Ubuntu. While it’s making its way to the repositories, you can as usual grab it from the stable channel for Lucid, Maverick, Natty and Oneiric. Note that those using the beta channel received the same version a few hours ago.

Chromium 12 comes with a lot of new great features, including hardware accelerated 3D CSS and a new safe browsing protection system. Note that if you were using the Google Gears plugin, it’s no longer supported. For that, the HTML5 offline feature is preferred. This release also fixes more than a dozen of security issues.

If you use Unity, the Chromium Quicklist has been translated in 21 languages since the last update around 2 weeks ago.

    Chromium 12 also ships the Unity appmenu support as an option in about:flags. Will this be turned on for future releases?

      yes, it’s enabled by default in trunk since M13 so it will be in Chromium 13.
