NW.js v0.42.3 Released with Node.js v13.1.0 and Chromium Security Update
NW.js 0.42.3 is here with both Node.js and Chromium stable update, and bug fixes as well.
Previously I released NW.js 0.42 major version with Chromium 78, which contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, and there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports Custom CSS Properties, SMS Receiver API, Faster Web Sockets 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 78 milestone hotlist.
I've made the 0.42 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 78. 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
