NW.js v0.37.1 Released with Node.js v11.12.0 and Chromium Update
0.37.1 is here with latest Node.js 11.12.0, and Chromium stable update. It fixes fullscreen handling in NW2 mode.
Previously we announced 0.37 upgrade with Chromium 73. It contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports async stack traces, constructable stylesheets, a new RegExp function, passive mouse events 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 73 milestone hotlist.
We've made the 0.37 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 73. 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.
- Update Chromium to 73.0.3683.86
- Update Node.js to v11.12.0
- nw2: Fix fullscreen: disable browser accelerator keys and access bubble
