Electron 10.0.0 has been released! It includes upgrades to Chromium
8.5, and Node.js
12.16. We've added several new API integrations and improvements. Read below for more details!
The Electron team is excited to announce the release of Electron 10.0.0! You can install it with npm via
npm install electron@latest or download it from our releases website. The release is packed with upgrades, fixes, and new features.
In the Electron 10 release, we also made a change to our release notes. To make it easier to tell what's brand new in Electron 10 and what may have changed between Electron 10 and past releases, we now also include changes that were introduced to Electron 10, but backported to previous releases. We hope this makes it easier to apps to find new features and bug fixes when upgrading Electron.
We can't wait to see what you build with them! Continue reading for details about this release, and please share any feedback you have!

Electron 7.x.y has reached end-of-support as per the project's support policy. Developers and applications are encouraged to upgrade to a newer version of Electron.
In the short term, you can expect the team to continue to focus on keeping up with the development of the major components that make up Electron, including Chromium, Node, and V8. Although we are careful not to make promises about release dates, our plan is release new major versions of Electron with new versions of those components approximately quarterly. The tentative 11.0.0 schedule maps out key dates in the Electron 11.0 development life cycle. Also, see our versioning document for more detailed information about versioning in Electron.
For information on planned breaking changes in upcoming versions of Electron, see our Planned Breaking Changes doc.
We started work to remove the remote module in Electron 9 and we're continuing plans to remove the
remote module. In Electron 11, we plan to continue refactor work for implementing WeakRef as we have done in Electron 10. Please read and follow this issue for full plans and details for deprecation.
Edit: Originally, this blog post stated that we would disable renderer process reuse in Electron 11. Disabling renderer process reuse has now been pushed to Electron 12.
From Electron 6 onwards, we've been laying the groundwork to require native Node modules loaded in the renderer process to be either N-API or Context Aware. Enforcing this change allows for stronger security, faster performance, and reduced maintenance workload. The final step of this plan is to remove the ability to disable render process reuse in Electron 12. Read this issue for full details including the proposed timeline.
