The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


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-2014-1720: Use-after-free in DOM

- CVE-2014-1721: Memory corruption in V8

- CVE-2014-1722: Use-after-free in rendering

- CVE-2014-1723: Url confusion with RTL characters

- CVE-2014-1724: Use-after-free in speech

- CVE-2014-1725: OOB read with window property

- CVE-2014-1726: Local cross-origin bypass

- CVE-2014-1727: Use-after-free in forms

- 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


Update the affected chromium packages.
