Reading through the info on the various channels, I see this as a notation for the Dev Channel.
"it’s the best build of the week from the Canary channel."
Based upon that tidbit, I was expecting a new Dev build every week. Since we received the first iteration on Monday a week ago, I was expecting an update this past Monday (04/15). Am I reading something incorrectly and setting the wrong expectation?
I have been using Version 188.8.131.52 daily without issue. I am anxious for the spell checking to come to life, or at least the Grammarly extension to begin working before it can be my primary browser in a business environment.

@Rahsna Asurac - The update was available bright and early last Friday, so anticipating the same would not be unreasonable. Fairly sure the process is queued up and a bit more automated than waiting on Fred to make it into work in Redmond and press the button.

@ericlaw - Nope. Just anxious to get my weekly Dev fix. In a production environment, letting Canary flesh out the hiccups first seems the wiser choice.
Thanks for the heads-up on the new Dev though. A quick current version check triggered the update download even though the browser itself was not reflecting its availability.

With today's (04/26) update to version 184.108.40.206 of Dev, I was surprised to see that a working spell check was still not included. However, I was greatly pleased to see that the Grammarly extension for Edge started working this morning, even prior to the browser version update. I am presuming that Grammarly must have made a change in the extension that fixed it. So, while it is a mystery as to why it started working, I will certainly take it! A lack of spell check was the only obstacle to a Chrome uninstall and shifting to Edge dev as my primary at work. Long since done in my home environment with old Edge and new.

@ericlaw Not really champing at the bit to get new builds, but trying to understand what to expect from weekly builds, so I can plan myself to update the browser and look at the changes.
Based on the last 2 releases I guess it's safe to assume that we'll get a new Dev release every Friday morning PST.
