    Hmmm I greatly like the option to be able to remove stuff like flash, widevine, and the new proprietary codecs lol.

    Only thing is when I hit check for updates now nothing happens. Only thing I can think of is that no new versions are out yet. So wondering is adobe flash version 20170110.1 & Widevine Content Decryption Module (version 1.4.8.824) still the recent ones?

    Other then that got to say another flawless update lol. 

    Edit: hit the new uninstall button restarted and it re downloaded the same ones. So I guess so lol. Also going to do a clean install would like to see what the new default wallpaper looks like lol.

    Edit 2: Just did a clean install and got to say I greatly love the new wallpaper and after installing flash it still is version 20170110.1 and same with Widevine Content Decryption Module version 1.4.8.824

    Edit 3: I also now have full bars of internet when previously I only had 2 bars of internet and connecting to websites are a bit faster then before lol. Didn't think or know my wifi driver in my laptop was a SIS 190 lol. Always thought it was realtek/ralink lol.

    Chromium 55 base (not CloudReady) has problems with some Shoutcast radio formats (Google it). Its working on 56 on my kids chromebook. Moving past 55 as soon as possible would be good for this functionality to be restored. It was working fine on 54.

    What about google play store? Is this available for this update?

    @ Marco Letona nope and probably won't be for a while/ a long time in all honesty. Since the feature is not completely open source yet.

    That's nice and all. But possible to update flash and widevine drm to the latest version?

    Cloudready shows
    Widewine: 1.4.8.824
    Flash: 20170110.1

    Chrome 56 on regular desktop
    Widevine: 1.4.8.962
    Flash: 24.0.0.221

    Asuming cloudready version shows date 10/1/2017 then it's outdated since 24.0.0.221 was released on 14.2 https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2277707 And there should be another update soon.

    Why the discrepancy? Flash and drm isn't bound to chrome version as far as I know. ppapi has indiviual updater.

    @ Rie that is what I am wondering and was wondering in my first post as as well and thought maybe it's bound by chrome version but that doesn't make any sense in all honesty. Only other thing's I can think of is maybe that's the latest version cloudready has access to? or it's more then likely/possible that the updates are broken in all honesty.

    Hi Rie,
    Thanks for bringing this to our attention! The Flash version update was a regular job that wasn't being run - this is fixed now. Widevine updates are a different setup - we don't have a fix at the moment, but I did put it on our roadmap to address in the short term. Thanks again for letting us know.

    Observation there. Clicked check for updates in settings, nothing happening.
    Uninstalled flash, rebooted then downloaded again. Got the latest version.

    Seems the build in updater isn't working. Previous 55.1 dev version did check for updates. Saw the % change over the diffrent items

    Version 55.2 Home Stable, works great on my Asus Book Flip TP200SA laptop
    the only two things that don,t work is the track pad and the touch screen.
    but works great with a Techknet Bluetooth mouse.
    The OS runs fast and smooth all Videos play back with full hardware acceleration
    in full screen and in web pages.

    @Rie - thanks!, confirmed. We logged a bug and this will likely get fixed in a v56 release
