"Aura" replaces multiplatform native UI, and arrived yesterday in google-chrome-unstable 34.0.1809.0.chromium-dev wrote:https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!topic/chromium-dev/xEbgvWE7wMk
In September 2013, we announced that NPAPI support will be phased out of Chrome in 2014, with the following schedule:
- January: block NPAPI plug-ins by default
- Mid-year: more aggressive blocking (different UI, smaller whitelist)
- Before end of 2014: remove support completely
The update here is that Linux NPAPI support may be dropped as early as M34 (goes to Stable in early April). The reason for this timeline is that we've decided not to implement NPAPI support in Linux Aura.
Adobe (NPAPI) Flash is frozen at 11.2, and will continue receiving security patches for a few years. It will not work with Chromium v34+.
Chromium can't ship Chrome's (PPAPI) Flash due to licensing restrictions; chromium users should install the pepperflashplugin-nonfree package.
