Release Notes for v76:
OS Upgrade to 76
Fix for bug with Media Codecs that causes boot failure: In some rare cases, we’ve seen media codecs install improperly and ultimately cause a device to stop booting. We’ve added a fix to prevent this case.
Fix for issues on few USB printers: We found and fixed a bug that was causing a small subset of USB printers to fail to work on CloudReady.
MyFiles directory can now hold folders and files: Starting in v76, CloudReady supports the same new Files App behavior as Chrome OS where the MyFiles directory can contain new folder or store files.
New in v76.2
Sleep resume fixes: Some changes and revisions to sleep/resume behavior on a few desktops are included in this release, including the HP Compaq dc5850, Dell Optiplex 360, and Dell Optiplex 960.
Default camera app now pre-installed: The default Chrome OS camera app is now included in CloudReady just as on Chrome OS devices. (Note: Android-enabled Chromebooks may include an Android camera app which is different than the Chrome app included on CloudReady).
Fix for session-restore issues from 76.1: An issue in v76.1 that caused sessions to not restore properly has been resolved.
Video decoding issues for Coffee Lake, Kaby Lake, and other devices: We’re seeing video stream corruption for certain sources, including VP9, on several modern Intel GPUs.
