July security updates: Chromium and Flash

I have uploaded new packages for Chromium. The version 67.0.3396.99 was released a month ago but the source remained unavailable for a while and then I “went under” for a while. Now that I finally built and uploaded it, I noticed there’s a new version up today (68.0.3440.75) but I will wait a bit with that one and focus on Plasma5 next.

Get these chromium-67.0.3396.99 packages for Slackware 14.2 and -current overhere:

And then there’s the July security update for Adobe’s Flash Player plugins, which is already two weeks old – also released when I was indisposed.
The version of the flashplayer-plugin (NPAPI plugin for Mozilla based browsers) and the chromium-pepperflash-plugin (PPAPI plugin for Chromium based browsers) is now available as a Slackware package in my repository.

Cheers, Eric

Great to see that you’re back, and amazing to find the fresh gcc multilib packages available almost directly after the -current upgrades. As said in another forum: you’re a genius.

Eric, thaks for these updated packages.

Are you aware of some sort of trouble with chromium-widevine-plugin with chromium 67? Netflix displays the error M7701-1003 when trying to play anything. Also, I can’t see WidevineCdm listed in chrome://components/.

Thanks for any reply on this.

Nevermind, Eric. Widevine plugin is working perfectly in c67.

I had ‘Allow protected content playback’ in advanced settings turned off. After enabling it, all went fine.

Thank you and sorry for the noise. 😉

Hi Deny Dias,

I had to wait until I got home to test Netflix but indeed, working flawlessly.
