NW.js v0.84.0 Released with Chromium 121

2024/02/05

I'm pleased to announce NW v0.84.0 with Chromium 120 stable upgrade.

In NW v0.84, Chromium 120 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports CSS masking, relaxed rules for CSS nesting, create accordion patterns with the details element, the enterpictureinpicture action for the Media Session API and much more. Please check upstream release notes for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 120 milestone hotlist.

I've made the 0.84 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 120. 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
