NW.js v0.36.0 Released with Chromium 72 and Node.js 11.8.0


I'm excited to announce NW.js 0.36.0 stable release. It ships Chromium 72 and Node.js v11.8.0.

Chromium 72 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports Public class fields, user activation API, screen capturing for WebRTC, Web Authentication for U2F/CTAP2 FIDO BLE and Windows devices and more. Please check Chromium blog and v8 blog for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 72 milestone hotlist.

We made the 0.36 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumped to 72. 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.
