Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This chromium version update fixes the following security and
non-security issues :

- Add patch chromium-fix-arm-skia-memset.patch to resolve
a linking issue on ARM with regards to missing symbols.

- Add patch arm_use_gold.patch to use the right gold
binaries on ARM. Hopefully this resolves the build
issues with running out of memory

- bnc#872805: Update to Chromium 34.0.1847.116

- Responsive Images and Unprefixed Web Audio

- Import supervised users onto new computers

- A number of new apps/extension APIs

- Lots of under the hood changes for stability and
performance

- Security fixes :

- CVE-2014-1716: UXSS in V8

- CVE-2014-1717: OOB access in V8

- CVE-2014-1718: Integer overflow in compositor

- CVE-2014-1719: Use-after-free in web workers

- CVE-2014-1728: Various fixes from internal audits,
fuzzing and other initiatives

- CVE-2014-1729: Multiple vulnerabilities in V8

- No longer build against system libraries as that
Chromium works a lot better and crashes less on websites
than with system libs

- Added package depot_tools.tar.gz as that the chromium
build now requires it during the initial build phase. It
just contains some utilities and nothing from it is
being installed.

- If people want to install newer versions of the ffmpeg
library then let them. This is what they want.

- Remove the buildscript from the sources
