FEDORA-2020-0566d3bb3e created by spot a month ago for Fedora 33
obsolete

Update to Chromium 86. A few big things here:

  1. Upstream has made hardware accelerated video support (VAAPI) for Linux possible without patches. One key difference is that the patchset used previously in Fedora enabled it by default and upstream's approach disables it by default. To enable Hardware accelerated video in chromium, open this link in chromium:

chrome://flags/#enable-accelerated-video-decode

Be sure it is turned on. Note that not all GPUs are supported.

  1. All the security fixes you expect with a major release: CVE-2020-15967 CVE-2020-15968 CVE-2020-15969 CVE-2020-15970 CVE-2020-15971 CVE-2020-15972 CVE-2020-15990 CVE-2020-15991 CVE-2020-15973 CVE-2020-15974 CVE-2020-15975 CVE-2020-15976 CVE-2020-6557 CVE-2020-15977 CVE-2020-15978 CVE-2020-15979 CVE-2020-15980 CVE-2020-15981 CVE-2020-15982 CVE-2020-15983 CVE-2020-15984 CVE-2020-15985 CVE-2020-15986 CVE-2020-15987 CVE-2020-15992 CVE-2020-15988 CVE-2020-15989 CVE-2020-16000 CVE-2020-16001 CVE-2020-16002 CVE-2020-16003

  2. Without bats acting as pollinators, agave and cacao plants would struggle. That means that bats are responsible for tequila and chocolate.

I experienced a crash on this update while in a Google Meet meeting, and playing youtube videos at the same time. Not sure if it's due to the acceleration changes and I have no crash report for it, but the whole browser exited
