Java plug-in missing after upgrade to 35.0.1916.114 (Linux)

Hi,

After upgrading Chrome from 34.0.1847.132 to google-chrome-stable_35.0.1916.114-1_amd64.deb (on Debian Linux wheezy) the Java plug-in stopped working (it does not appear at all on the about:plugins page). The symlink from /opt/google/chrome/plugins/libnpjp2.so to the corresponding file in JDK (latest version 7) is present as before. I also tried symlinking to the file's version found in JRE (rather than JDK) and to 32-bit rather than 64-bit version, to no avail. Only downgrading to 34.0.1847.132 restores functionality. Any ideas what could be wrong with that?

Thanks,
Ray

Responding to self: based on the other posts, Chrome 35 decided to drop support for NPAPI, which means dropping support for the Java plug-in from Oracle. Well, for me this means dropping Chrome, good-bye!

The same has happened to me. All plugins in /opt/Google/chrome/plugins/ are ignored. 
All plugins worked before the update. 

Another error is the error reporting in crome. Send button is hidden, so it is impossible to send a bug report.

Go into the advanced settings and change page zoom to 100%.

Minor update about the NPAPI you can find at Introducing Chrome 35.
It contains links to the original blogpost about NPAPI as tips for developers.

No feature updates doesn't mean no updateshttp://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplatform/whitepapers/roadmap.html Security updates continue. By the time they stop, I think we can assume that either we don't need Flash anymore because standard web APIs have picked up the slack (o frabjous day!) or that this plugin tussle between Google and everyone else will have been resolved in some other way.
