NW.js 0.62.1 is here with Node.js v17.7.1 and Chromium update.

Chromium 99 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports CSS Cascade Layers, New Canvas 2D Features, New showPicker() Method on HTMLInputElement Objects and more. Please check Chromium blog for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 99 milestone hotlist.

I've made the 0.62 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 99. 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
