We're excited to announce NW.js 0.26.0-beta1 in beta branch.

Chromium 62 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports Network Quality Estimator API, OpenType variable fonts, and media capture from DOM elements. Please check upstream information here

We've made the 0.26 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 62. Please try it and give your valuable feedback. We've been working on 3 branches simultaneously: a released branch on current Chromium stable, a beta branch on Chromium beta and a 0.14 branch for legacy OS support.

For more information on the new milestone 0.13 and later versions, please see our blog "What's New in 0.13" for a better introduction.


SDK build:

Binary for other platforms: https://dl.nwjs.io/v0.26.0-beta1/

There are 2 builds for each platform - normal build, and SDK build. Normal build doesn't have devtools, only SDK build does. lt can be opened by pressing F12 (Cmd-Alt-I on OSX). SDK packages also have more development tools to be exposed in the following releases, as well as the NaCl support.

Our build infrastructure enables live binary build from git tip so you can access to the latest binary from https://dl.nwjs.io/live-build/
