Has support for 32-bit Chromium been withdrawn?

Previously, 32-bit Snap versions of Chromium appeared close to the release of 64-bit versions. However, recently, new 32-bit versions have not appeared… last was: 97.0.4692.71 7 January 2022 whereas the current 64-bit version is: 98.0.4758.102 16 February 2022

Has 32-bit support been discontinued???

Yes, this was mentioned here:

kept core18 branch around for i386 builds, but they have been broken for 8 major releases now, upstream doesn’t support this architecture, and we don’t have the manpower to look into the issue, so we won’t be producing new i386 builds for now

Many thanks - sad news but useful to know. The “breakage” can be “obscured” by running with suitable switches - maybe a little insecurely but perfectly usable. I would certainly vote for the releases to continue as before if that was possible.

Any chance for a 32-bit Chromium update?? PLEASE! If not, maybe the Snap store needs tidying to remove the obsolete / insecure versions?
