    Default Dev Update: 3.0.187.1

    Dev Channel Update: 3.0.187.1
    Thursday, June 11, 2009 | 15:40
    Yesterday's Dev Channel update (3.0.187.0) for Windows had a critical bug which crashes the browser when you use the wrench or page menus. This release fixes that issue.


    If you already have 3.0.187.0 you cannot get to About Google Chrome to force an update. You have a couple of choices to get the update.

    Wait. If you wait about 5 hours Google Chrome will check for an update and install it for you.
    Uninstall Google Chrome and reinstall from http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?extra=devchannel
    The Mac and Linux builds were not affected by this bug so they are not being updated.

    We apologize for the problem and we are making changes to our process to try and avoid issues like this in the future. The dev channel is always going to be a little risky but we agree that major features like this should not go out broken.

    It's nice that they have a big RED message across the release notes saying the update crashes ...

    Bit of a shame that you've been updated already !!!!!!

    For those wondering, you can also use StevePaul's method here http://www.chromeplugins.org/google/....html#post9042 to roll your version back then use About > Update.

    A lot of people are reporting an issue crashing if you leave Chrome open for any length of time. It's happened to me a few times (usually while I'm not doing anything and not even focused). It will also crash every OTHER time you open the Chrome Task Manager (at least it has for me and several other people). But it's a big step up from not being able to open any menus :P
