NW.js v0.66.0 Released with Chromium 103 Upgrade and Node.js v18.4.0
I'm pleased to announce NW v0.66.0 with Chromium 103 stable upgrade and Node.js v18.4.0.
In NW v0.66, Chromium 103 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports Local Font Access, AbortSignal.timeout() Static Method and more. Please check Chromium blog for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 103 milestone hotlist.
I've made the 0.66 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 103. 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 103.0.5060.53
- Update Node.js to v18.4.0
- Fix: shared worker devtools window crash (#7867)
- Fix: global is not set on windows opened with new_instance true (#7866)
