ChromeOS Beta Channel Delivers New UI, Touchpad Driver for CR-48 Users

The ChromeOS beta channel has pushed out a significant update for anyone still using the ‘CR-48’ Chromebook – the new Aura interface!

Google’s freebit device also gets updated with the new open-source touchpad driver, which, in theory, promises improved behaviour and responsiveness.

The Chrome 20 update for Beta Channel is rounded out by the usual smattering of under the hood tweaks and security fixes.

If you don’t spot the update straight away do exercise some patience: Google say that upgrade will be rolled out ‘over the next several days.’
