NW.js v0.61.0 Released with Chromium 98 Upgrade
NW.js 0.61.0 is here with the Chromium 98 stable upgrade. It also fixes a crash bug loading websites.
Chromium 98 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports COLRv1 Color Gradient Vector Fonts, structuredClone() Method on Windows and Workers, AudioContext.outputLatency and more. Please check Chromium blog for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 98 milestone hotlist.
I've made the 0.61 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 98. 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 98.0.4758.82
- Fix: crash on accessing window.parent and window.top (#7828)
