It seems that the maintainer is overworked and cannot provide Jessie
updates for chromium anymore[1].  Somebody else said he might be looking
at it[2], but that was six weeks ago and nothing happened so far.

So while it is not clear when chromium in jessie will be EOL'ed, it
seems advisable to switch to some other browser for now (if you want a
package from Debian, firefox-esr is the only option).
