I'm still not seeing version 20 in the stable channel. I'm running 19.0.1084.57 but I'm getting up to date when it goes to check for updates.

The "updated" flash is incompatible with Zynga games. Not happy with this update.

Updated flash on chrome linux works strange on my system. If i try to play videos on youtube or any other site videos start fine but seem to skip every 5-10sec for 1-2 secs. Pretty annoying.

If i disable pepper flash and enable old flash plugin from adobe site all works fine.

When watching youtube I get sound getting corrupt and stutter after playing for about 1 minute.
This happens on both my desktop and netbook! They both run Ubuntu 12.04 and they are both Intel based.
This has been happening for all Chrome 20 versions released so far, had to roll back to 19.
