Yes, seems they added libEGL.so and libGLESv2.so on top of those in /opt/google/chrome-beta/swiftshader/.

Package size just jumped from 265mb to 345mb for me (using PKGEXT=.pkg.tar). From diffing the v60 and v61 tarballs it seems like the gl and widevine libs increased drastically in size, commonly doubling. Notably opt/google/chrome-beta/libEGL.so seems to be over 150 times its previous size.

I don't see anything that needs to be addressed in the packaging, just putting this out there for anyone else wondering.

Edit: seems like it's only a difference of 12mb compressed.

Oh..

Yeah.

Ping? Provides array is wrong.

This no longer provides pepper-flash, does it?

build 54.0.2840.16-2 has begun to segfault on me at seemingly random intervals. Sometimes it will go for 30 minutes and sometimes it only lasts 5. It doesn't look like there's a log it's leaving behind either, so I'm not even sure how to debug it or if it is even chrome or some other dependency. Anyone else having similar problems?

Yep, it's fixed. thanks.

Det commented on 2016-09-09 13:05

Should be fixed in -2.

I updated to 54.0.2840.16-1, and run Plank Dock. When starting chrome, it seems to be "disconnected" from the .desktop file, since it is not pinnable. Even if creating a custom launcher file, that only works as a launcher.

If anyone else runs Plank, do you have this issue? This could very well be a Chrome bug, but if someone comes here to look for help, I just wanted to put this here.

"beta: 53.0.2785.34 dropped a week ago"

No, that's the Dev Channel. It was promoted to Beta just yesterday/today: http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/2016/07/beta-channel-update-for-desktop.html
