NW.js v0.25.4 Released with Node.js Security Update


This is a release for the Node.js 8.6.0 security update only.

Earlier this month we announced NW.js 0.25 with Chromium 61 upgrade. Chromium 61 features JavaScript modules support, Payment Request API and WebUSB. See the upstream announcement for more information. The stable upgrade contains many security fixes as well.

We made the 0.25 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 61. 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.

There are 2 builds for each platform - normal build, and SDK build. Normal build doesn't have devtools, only SDK build does. lt can be opened by pressing F12 (Cmd-Alt-I on OSX). SDK packages also have more development tools to be exposed in the following releases, as well as the NaCl support.

Our build infrastructure enables live binary build from git tip so you can access to the latest binary from https://dl.nwjs.io/live-build/
