Google has released a new version, 18·0·1025·142, of its Chrome browser, for all platforms: Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Chrome Frame. This new release includes fixes for nine security vulnerabilities, including three of High severity. As expected, the bundled Flash Player is the just-released version. It also provides improved graphics and drawing performance, and better 3-D graphics capabilities on older hardware. More details are available in the release announcement, and on the Official Chrome Blog.
Windows and Mac users should get the new version via the built-in update mechanism. Linux users should get the updated package from their distributions’ repositories, using their standard package maintenance tools. You can verify that your system has been updated by clicking on the tools menu (the little wrench), and then on “About Google Chrome”.
