What do you mean by that?
There won't be any new versions of Debian's i386 version of the
chromium package?

I don't know what is happening with Chromium, But Google Chrome has stopped
updates for i386, Wheezy and one or two other things.  They didn't affect me,
so I can't remember what they are!  I have not seen anything about Debian not
supporting Chromium i386, so it probably still does.


Actually google-chrome is built from chromium sources...an open-source project. Google just decided it would bother compiling the 32-bit sources anymore. I don't know who supplies Chromium for Debian but I imagine 32 and 64 bit is available. I wiped my 32 bit stretch/sid partition this past weekend to install 64 bit so I could access google-chrome again. Looks the same to me :)
