NW.js v0.81.0 Released with Chromium 118 and Node.js v20.7.0


I'm pleased to announce NW v0.81.0 with Chromium 118 stable upgrade.

In NW v0.81, Chromium 118 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports Scoped styles for CSS, additional media features, keyboard-focusable scroll containers and more. Please check upstream release notes for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 118 milestone hotlist.

I've made the 0.81 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 118. Thanks to the testers for their valuable feedback and bug reports. I've been working on 2 branches simultaneously: a released branch on the current Chromium stable and a beta branch on Chromium beta.

Best regards,
Roger Wang
