I'm pleased to announce NW.js 0.56.0. It ships Chromium 93 stable upgrade and Node.js 16.4.2 update.

Chromium 93 contains usual under-the-hood performance and stability tweaks, but there are also some cool new features to explore. It supports Multi-Screen Window Placement and more. Please check Chromium blog for details. For a complete list of all features (including experimental features) in this release, see the Chrome 93 milestone hotlist.

I've made the 0.56 branch ready soon after Chromium beta bumps to 93. 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

Binary for other platforms: https://dl.nwjs.io/v0.56.0/

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/

Hello,

I am installing the NW.js version 05.56.0 but I can not find the runtime dependencies and the build dependencies.

Can you please help me?
