Changements notables

Changements de la Stack

Highlight Features

  • Implemented usage of Chrome's built-in spellchecker feature. See more details in #20692 and #21266.
  • IPC communication now uses v8's Structured Clone Algorithm. This is faster, more featureful, and less surprising than the existing logic, and brings about a 2x performance boost for large buffers and complex objects. Latency for small messages is not significantly affected. See more details in #20214.

Changements majeurs avec rupture de compatibilité

  • Show module name in deprecation warning for context-aware modules. #21952
    • This is continued work for a future requirement that native Node modules loaded in the renderer process be either N-API or Context Aware. Full info and proposed timeline is detailed in this issue.
  • Values sent over IPC are now serialized with Structured Clone Algorithm. #20214
  • Offscreen Rendering is currently disabled due to lack of a maintainer to work on this feature. It broke during the Chromium upgrade and was subsequently disabled. #20772

Fin du support pour 5.x.y

Electron 5.x.y a atteint la fin du support conformément au projet politique d'assistance. Nous encourageons les développeurs à mettre à jour vers une version plus récente d'Electron et de faire de même avec leurs applications.

Programme de feedback

Nous continuons à utiliser notre Programme de Feedback de l'application pour les tests. Les projets qui participent à ce programme testent les bétas d'Electron sur leurs applications ; et en retour, les nouveaux bogues qu'ils trouvent sont priorisés pour la version stable. Si vous souhaitez participer ou en savoir plus, consultez notre blog sur le programme.

Et maintenant ?

À court terme, vous pouvez compter sur l’équipe pour continuer a se concentrer sur le développement des principaux composants qui composent Electron, notamment Chromium, Node et V8. Bien que nous veillions à ne pas faire de promesses à propos des dates de publication, notre plan est la sortie de nouvelles versions majeures d'Electron avec de nouvelles versions de ces composants environ un trimestre. Le planning escompté de la version 9.0.0 planning défini les dates clés du cycle de vie de développement d'Electron 9. Aussi, regardez notre document de versioning pour plus d'informations sur le versioning dans Electron.

Deprecation of remote Module (Starting in Electron 9)

Due to serious security liabilities, we are beginning plans to deprecate the remote module starting in Electron 9. You can read and follow this issue that details our reasons for this and includes a proposed timeline for deprecation.
