Faster Chrome releases (round two!)

From Chrome 119 we will shorten the time between the branch for a release and release to stable.

Starting with Chrome 119, the Chrome team is again reducing the time between the branch for a release, and the actual release to stable. This change builds on the success of the previous time reduction, and continues our efforts to shorten the time it takes to launch.

This will change the release date for Chrome stable and early stable.

The following table shows how this change affects the 119 release.

Stage Chrome 119 (Old) Chrome 119 (Revised)
Branch Tue, Oct 3 Mon, Oct 2
Beta Promotion Wed, Oct 11 Wed, Oct 4
Stable Cut Tue, Oct 31 Tue, Oct 24
Early Stable Release Wed, Nov 1 Wed, Oct 25
Stable Release Tue, Nov 7 Tue, Oct 31

Note that Chrome 120 stable will release on December 6 due to this change, and all dates after this have been adjusted to account for this.

You can keep track of upcoming releases on the Chrome Status Roadmap, and see the schedule in detail on the Chromium Dashboard. We publish a post on this site for each beta release, so you can keep track of upcoming changes to Chrome.
