NW.js v0.24.0 Released with Chromium 60, Node.js 8.2.1 and Security Updates


We're pleased to announce NW.js 0.24.0 with Chromium 60 upgrade and Node.js 8.2.1.

Chromium 60 features Paint Timing API, CSS font-display, and Credential Management API improvements. See the upstream announcement for more information. The stable upgrade contains many security fixes as well.

We made the 0.24 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 60. Thanks to the testers for their valuable feedback and bug reports. We've been working on 3 branches simultaneously: a released branch on current Chromium stable, a beta branch on Chromium beta and a 0.14 branch for legacy OS support.

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.
