Hey CloudReady Fans!

v65.1 is going out on the Dev Channel to our Education and Enterprise customers today!
Release Notes for v65.1:
- OS Upgrade to 65
- Touchpad improvements for a number of Dell and Asus machines: We've improved touchpad performance on a few common touchpads found in Asus and Dell Inspiron models. This fix is targeted by touchpad ID, so it may improve models not listed here.
- Major improvements to input tools and methods: We've updated the available input tools in CloudReady to offer improvements to various foreign languages (especially Chinese input methods) as well improved on-screen keyboard inputs.
- Guest users can no longer alter media plugins: To prevent a temporary guest session from altering the entire device, guest users can no longer install, uninstall, or update media plugins.
- Fix for sleep issue on Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3: In v64, this model stopped resuming from sleep, but it works as expected in v65.1.
- Improvements to flatpak support: Though still in an "experimental" phase, we continue to improve support for flatpaks. They will now periodically attempt to update themselves when installed, and most will show their proper icon on the task bar when open. You can also uninstall them just like a regular Chrome app.
- Intel GM965 graphics issues: Devices with Intel GM965 graphics are failing to boot on v65.1 - we're investigating this issue now
- Wallpaper rendering issues on some older GPUs: Some devices with GMA 950 and GMA 3150 graphics are no longer properly rendering the CloudReady wallpaper (and some other user-specified wallpapers). Issues of this kind are fixed once logged in as a user.
- General issues with dual/switchable GPUs: We've found that machines with dual GPUs (Intel and NVIDIA) fail to boot CloudReady. We are generally recommending that all users disable "Optimus" or "Switchable" graphics in their BIOS/UEFI settings.
Unstable releases often have unforeseen bugs. We rely upon Dev Channel users to report those to us in our forums, so if you're ok with a little instability, please jump to this new release and let us know what you think!
