I have chromium-browser installed from the default Ubuntu repositories. When interrogated, it claims to be version 32.
# chromium-browser --version Chromium 32.0.1700.107 Ubuntu 13.10
Is this Chromium up to date?
It may seem obvious that software installed from the repositories will remain up-to-date as long as the system is updated. However, chromium-browser comes from the Universe repository which is maintained by the community.
# apt-cache show chromium-browser Package: chromium-browser Priority: optional Section: universe/web Installed-Size: 142499 Maintainer: Ubuntu Developers <email@example.com> Original-Maintainer: Micah Gersten <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Fabien Tassin <email@example.com> Architecture: amd64 Version: 32.0.1700.107-0ubuntu0.13.10.1~20140204.972.1
Is Chromium actually maintained? The Chromium project doesn't have any stable versions but Google's Chrome seems to be on version 33 already.
