The latest stable build (10.0.648.127) is available now for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. Those who currently have Chrome installed can use the built-in update function under the About Google Chrome menu item.
The release is light on new features because Google is no longer concerned about using version numbers to mark a significant development milestone. The search giant recently promised to accelerate the release cycle for Chrome and push out a new stable build every six weeks. Chrome 9 was actually released just over four weeks ago. Apparently users don't mind these frequent releases: the browser's market share is already over 10 percent.
