New chromium and chromium-dev packages
For the curious among you, I have additionally refreshed my chromium-dev packages. Chromium-dev is the development release of the browser (there’s also a “beta” channel but I don’t care about that too much). By play-testing the development release from time to time, I am prepared and do not get nasty surprises when the stable channel jumps to a higher major release (the jump from 38 to 39 was quite intrusive in terms of SlackBuild script).
Chromium-dev packages have the version number 41.0.2236.0. (and are only made available for slackware-current). The version of the stable Chromium is now at 39.0.2171.95.
Get the Chromium packages in one of the usual locations:
- http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/chromium/ (primary server)
- http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/slackbuilds/chromium/ (my own US mirror)
- http://alien.slackbook.org/slackbuilds/chromium/ (US)
- http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/slackbuilds/chromium/ (UK)
Change “chromium” to “chromium-dev” and you have the URL for the development release.
