NW.js v0.52.1 Released with Chromium Update and Node.js v15.12.0
I'm pleased to announce NW.js 0.52.1. It ships Chromium 89 stable update and Node.js v15.12.0.
Chromium 89 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports WebHID API, Web Serial API, AVIF Image Decode and more. Please check Chromium blog for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 89 milestone hotlist.
I've made the 0.52 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 89. 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.
- Update Chromium to 89.0.4389.90
- Update Node.js to v15.12.0
- Fix: fullscreen start crash (#7697)
- MacOS Assessment Mode enabled via Kiosk Mode (#7698)
- nw2: fire close-quit event from Dock (#7365)
