The following versions of Chromium are available at the moment :

All packages for Ubuntu Oneiric Ocelot.

However, as per Chromium Developer Calendar, the following versions are released for Linux:

linux   dev     16.0.904.0
linux   beta    15.0.874.92
linux   stable  14.0.835.202

Is there any way I can get the latest developer build running on my system (without compiling it)

Alternative Chromium PPA

The PPAs above are not being updated at all. Alex Shkop has taken up responsibility to keep a better, more updated PPA set for chromium. They include:

Note: The above PPAs are only for 12.04 at the moment.

Bleeding Edge Chromium Binaries

You can download the continuous builds from here. This will get you the last bleeding-edge chromium revision which passed the test suite.

To install them, just extract the zip file somewhere (I use ~/apps/) and run the chrome binary inside.

Sorry, you found the right place to get them, but they were just not up to date, the Chromium daily PPA has been restarted.
