Bug/help icon/buttons removed (hurray!). Media player back (non-functional). I think the file manager/Picasa extension have had a slight tweak, although I'm unsure exactly what. General speed feels a bit snappier.Does this have the new Linux kernel (126.96.36.199, I think)?What else have you guys noticed?With Chrome dev getting bumped to 13, I imagine we might be a week or two away, as well.
Also, some beta users, including my wife have been bumped up to 12.433.38 beta, yet I'm failing to see release notes or a listing on it in cros-omahaproxy.appspot.com . . .I'm trying to figure if it was a server bug that pushed the update too early, or if Google's simply failed to acknowledge the release (for whatever reason).
I was just updated to 12.433.38. I am a Beta Channel user.
Yes, I've got the 12.433.38 release on my beta - and it's changed by login pix on some random pattern. Any idea how to change them back? Not that I mind being a test-tube beaker, but it would be nice to have a choice...
Oh, there it is - under personal stuff. Lots of random pix to choose from, plus they've got the camera running now (and uploading your own image, apparently). So now, I have a shot of me in the early am instead of being a pastel-colored beaker.
Jay, I heard mention of you testing out Chromium OS on a high-performance device. I'm using my HP G70 and it's working really well. Curious to know if you've looked at HDMI support. I know they will be putting a port on the Acer Chromebook. Have you given HDMI a try? For me, it shows the Chromium splash screen while it is booting, then the screen goes to black with ^@ in the upper left corner. I wonder if they will have full HDMI support by June 15 or not.
