Google Releases Chrome 28 for Linux

Google has released a new stable version, 28.0.1500.45, of its Chrome browser for Linux. The Release Announcement, which is quite terse, makes no mention of other platforms; nor is there any indication of what changes are included in this version.  My guess  is that we will see a similar release for Windows and Mac OS X shortly; I’ll post a follow-up note if I learn anything more.

Google does say that the minimum supported release level for Linux has been updated to:

  • Ubuntu 12.04+
  • Debian 7+
  • OpenSuSE 12.2+
  • Fedora Linux 17+

This doesn’t necessarily mean that this and future releases will not work with older Linux versions, just that they may not; if they don’t, Google won’t fix it.

As usual, Linux users should check their distributions’ package repositories to get the new version.
