Olof on the Chrome OS team just delivered the following to a dev email thread that started eons ago (over a year ago) when I asked about running containers on Chrome OS devices in dev mode.

The thread has been going on for a long time, people poking at it now and then, but today, this significant news, if you're interested in this.  He wrote:

--------------------------------------------

Hi,

Just a quick heads up here about recent changes in the Chrome OS kernel. We've enabled some of the needed options to run Docker/LXC on R45 (current ToT).

We've only enabled this on kernel versions 3.14 and 3.18. Container support isn't deemed solid in kernels before that, so unfortunately those platforms won't see it enabled.

For reference, the platforms running the 3.14 kernel are Rockchip, the 2015 Chromebook Pixel and other Broadwell-based Chromebooks.

Free music, nice pieces here.

About time! I hate it when you leave open YouTube tabs and reboot and they all try to play when you reopen Chrome.
 
Google Chrome will now defer playback of autoplay media until the tab is foregrounded in the latest Dev Channel. This means no more "Where's that sound coming from?" moments when an ad for instance decides to autoplay in a tab you've specifically opened in the background.

Resources will still be preloaded if indicated but Chrome will delay the start of playback until you actually visit the tab.

This cool feature prevents obviously user annoyance but also conserves power as Chrome will only consume power once the tab is foregrounded.

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

I have various vital uses for this, you may too!
 
As you know, Chrome OS has now built-in support for password-protected ZIP files and that's really great but how about creating some password-protected ZIP files on your Chrome device

Lucky you! That's exactly what My Little Password does, a Chrome App I wrote for you. It is as simple as you can imagine and the beauty of this is that I conveniently rely on the C library libarchive¹ to create the ZIP archive thanks to the Portable Native Client² technology.
Go have a look at the public GitHub repository³ to see how easy it is to communicate between C and Javascript.

My Little Password Chrome App is available now for everyone at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/floifiapkmdcpbnppnfjikpbmgbbdijf
