NW.js v0.29.1 Released with Chromium Update & Node.js 9.8.0
NW.js 0.29.1 is here with Chromium stable update, Node.js 9.8.0 and bug fixes.
Chromium 65 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports CSS Paint API, the ServerTiming API, CSS
display: contents property and many more. Please check upstream information for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 65 milestone hotlist.
We've made the 0.29 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 65. Thanks to the testers for their valuable feedback and bug reports. We've been working on 2 branches simultaneously: a released branch on current Chromium stable and a beta branch on Chromium beta.
