The stable channel has been updated to 50.0.2661.94 for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
 Security Fixes and Rewards
Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated 
with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other 
projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.
 This update includes 9 security fixes. Below, we highlight fixes that were contributed by external 
researchers. Please see the Chromium security page for more information.

 We would also like to thank all security researchers that worked with us during the development 
cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel. 
 As usual, our ongoing internal security work was responsible for a wide range of fixes:
[607652] CVE-2016-1666: Various fixes from internal audits, fuzzing and other initiatives.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

Either manifest or distfile propagated with errors to mirrors (I tried several before reporting the issue). This is perhaps deserves a separate bug report but I would like to make you aware about the issue.

I had not problem too to download from

Someone created bug #581924 after my comment #2 here. There is (or was) error in propagating the distfile across mirrors, and the corruption seems to be different across different distfiles mirrors.

I downloaded the distfile from google and it passed checksum checks. Any mirrors I tried yesterday (quite many) returned broken files.

There was no comment on the bug, so I did not realize you had stabilized it.
Comment 8 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2016-05-04 12:00:10 UTC
