NW.js v0.41.0 Released with Chromium 77 Upgrade
I'm excited to announce NW.js 0.41.0 stable upgrade. It ships Chromium 77 which contains many security and performance updates.
Chromium 77 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports New Performance Metrics, New Form Capabilities, Layout Instability Monitoring 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 77 milestone hotlist.
I've made the 0.41 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 77. Thanks to the testers for their valuable feedback and bug reports. I've been working on 2 branches simultaneously: a released branch on current Chromium stable and a beta branch on Chromium beta.
Best regards, Roger Wang
