CloudReady Update: v54.2 Beta & Stable Channel for Home Edition


We're excited to go live with this release - in total, this upgrade from v53 -> v54 carries major improvements, but even v54.1 -> v54.2 should be a great upgrade for users of the Home Edition, including improvements to RAM management that should be immediately noticeable.

    After a whole day seeing my laptop in action this update was pretty well needed lol. Things are a bit more faster then usual and the Proprietary Codecs actually make Cloudready even one step closer to being a full fledged OS (well it is a full fledged OS lol) but it's even closer to Chrome OS in my opinion.

    Biggest difference was my AMD APU It's not heating as badly as before. So a much needed update for AMD APU'S as well in my opinion.

    Overall in my opinion this was a much needed update and looking forward to future updates.

    i will definitely update my cloudready laptop later. I just have question on "We added a new Proprietary Codec install option in the Settings menu" do we need to install other codecs or it is already added in the update? (sorry i don't have much knowledge about codecs)

    From what I understand if you download the Proprietary Codecs you get access to all the file types that are listed in the link that's in the blog post. Not 100% sure though but that appears to be the gist from the sounds of it.

    Also it's just like flash and widevine you click install and that's it everything installs automatically.

    Memory management improvement is huge! My laptop w/ 2GB RAM used to struggle but it's noticeably faster now. Nice job!

    @DHILIP M KUMAR; download OS 54.2 from the Neverware site.
    Use the Chrome tool to put it on a USB stick
    Then do a 'fresh' install on your laptop.

    That helpt me the last time, now i'm getting the latest updates.

    Good luck!

    I'm a new user, and wow, I installed it on my Mac Mini late 2012, where all I used MacOS for was Emacs, and even while using Chromevox, (spoken feedback) Cloudready makes my Mac feel brand new! I do wish I had access to Chrome v56, but I can surely wait for it.
