Chromium updated v56 in Rasbian with Pixel

Thu Feb 09, 2017 3:14 am

It would appear the Post regards Chromium v51 pre Pixel is still being posted in !!

Therefore as the version in Raspbian Jessie is out of date maybe a version 54 would resolve many issues ?

Please could a progress report be aired !!

There is a v56 in the works and should be released soon. I'm not exactly sure when, but it works with 4.9

There is HW acceleration for video for a while now. HW acceleration for anything else makes so sense since it's actually slower because it needs to copy all that info from the GPU.
