Hexxeh updates Chrome OS build, now more kick-ass than ever
Codenamed Flow (I'll assume because of the epic Vanilla Ice line "Flow like a harpoon, daily and nightly"), the new version adds loads of new functionality. The automatic update feature which was recently beta tested is now baked-in, more hardware is supported (including full NVidia ION acceleration), battery life is improved, webcams are now supported, and numerous bugs have been squashed.
Perhaps the biggest addition is the customizable menu, where you can now add, delete, and organize your favorite web-based applications. It's a significant step toward making the Chromium OS feel like a real desktop replacement.
Right now, Flow is only available as an image file for writing to a physical drive (the download link is at the bottom of this page).
If you want to test it in VMWare, give Hexxeh a few more days -- he'll no doubt have a prepackaged VM you can play with very soon.
