NW.js v0.19.2 Released with Chromium 55 update


NW.js 0.19.2 is here with Chromium 55.0.2883.87. This is the only change to sync with bug fixes in upstream.

NW19 features Chromium 55, which contains under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, and some cool new features to explore like input handling improvements. See the upstream announcement for more information. NW19 also features V8 5.5, which ships support for JavaScript's async/await & has 35% less memory consumption on low-memory devices.

For more information on the new milestone 0.13 and later versions, please see our blog "What's New in 0.13" for a better introduction.
