11 - Jun - 2014 .- More Bad News, have not been able to download the source code (full check out of chromium source) because of bogus errors with gclient, sadly the source code tarball is stuck on REV 197479 and was the fastest way to get the source code.
Tarball downloader is located at: http://chromium-browser-source.commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium_tarball.html
Downloading the source code without using the tarball takes more than 4 hours since there are millions of files that gclient downloads using GIT and finally fails.
09 - Nov - 2013 .- Bad News, download manager source code was refactored and is very different, I am trying to figure out everything so will have to start from scratch to release a new version, this is going to take while, at least current version 28.0.1495.0 is still working great here and newer code have been unstable or 'flaky', maybe this is the point where they start changing all the code around making things worse.
16 - Jul - 2013 .- Updated code to version 28.0.1495.0
06 - Mar - 2013 .- Updated code to version 27.0.1431.0
05 - Mar - 2013 .- Updated code to version 27.0.1430.0
26 - Feb - 2013 .- Updated code to version 27.0.1419.0
15 - Feb - 2013 .- Important!!!: had to downgrade to version 26.0.1399.0 since version 26.0.1409.0 has a lot of problems because chromium developers are releasing pure crap packed with new bugs, do not use any chrome version higher than 26.0.1399.0 until they fix all the problems (like Issue 175335 & Issue 176175)
This rebuilded version 26.0.1399.0 has the following fixes:
10 - Feb - 2013 .- Updated version to 26.0.1409.0 that includes render updates and download shelf fixes!
08 - Feb - 2013 .-
Finally finished upgrading the code, chromium developers moved a lot of code around and was really hard to make the update even knowing exactly what was needed.
