Google Chrome 54.0.2840.59 being distributed to SHU workstations

After successful User Acceptance Testing for software updates before distribution, we are currently distributing Google Chrome 54.0.2840.59 to SHU Managed Desktop workstations.

This update has been released in order to resolve critical flaws with the previous version. It will only install when the workstation is at the ctrl-alt-del login screen.

One thing that has changed is that the Pepper Flash plugin is no longer installed as part of Chrome; it is downloaded automatically when a user visits a Flash enabled site, and installed in their user profile. This may mean that a user needs to refresh the page for the content to play after the plugin has installed.
