NW.js v0.50.3 Released with Chromium and Node.js Update
0.50.3 is released to sync up with latest Node.js v15.5.1 and Chromium 87 security update. It should be the last 0.50 release as 0.51.0 will be released with Chromium 88 soon.
Previously I released 0.50 with Chromium 87 stable upgrade. It added supports for the Wayland platform, Control camera pan, tilt, and zoom; CSS flow-relative shorthand and offset properties; Atomics.waitAsync(); Streams API: transferable streams and more. Please check Chromium blog for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 87 milestone hotlist.
I've made the 0.50 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 87. 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.
