Google has started a Google Chrome Releases blog which is already carrying the first security release update information for Chrome Beta version

The blog, which opened three days after was released to the Chrome update servers, lists the security-related changes in Chrome releases. Each entry is accompanied with a link to the Chromium issues tracker and a link to the revision of the Chromium source code where it is fixed.

The first batch of security fixes include a fix for a buffer overflows when saving files with long file names and the display of the status bar when the user hovers over page elements. Also fixed is the protocol handler vulnerability where adding a character to the protocol part of a URL could cause Chrome to crash.

The posting on the blog also listed non-security fixes in Chrome, fixing JavaScript bugs with Facebook and problems with search suggestions not working properly with other search engines, including Yahoo.
