I'm excited to announce a new major version 0.33.0 with Chromium 69. There are 40 security fixes in this version including:

  • High CVE-2018-16065: Out of bounds write in V8.
  • High CVE-2018-16066: Out of bounds read in Blink.
  • High CVE-2018-16067: Out of bounds read in WebAudio.
  • High CVE-2018-16068: Out of bounds write in Mojo.
  • High CVE-2018-16069: Out of bounds read in SwiftShader.
  • High CVE-2018-16070: Integer overflow in Skia.
  • High CVE-2018-16071: Use after free in WebRTC.

Chromium 69 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports AV1 video decoder, new CSS tricks, OffscreenCanvas, Keyboard Map API and many more. Please check upstream information for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 69 milestone hotlist.

We've made the 0.33 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 69. Thanks to the testers for their valuable feedback and bug reports. We've been working on 2 branches simultaneously: a released branch on current Chromium stable and a beta branch on Chromium beta.
