Here is NW.js v0.54.1 with Node.js v16.4.0 update. It also ships the latest Chromium 91 update.

Chromium 91 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports WebTransport, WebXR Plane Detection API and more. Please check Chromium blog for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 91 milestone hotlist.

I've made the 0.54 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 91. 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.

Best regards,
Roger Wang
