· Leitura de 5 minutos

Electron 25.0.0 has been released! It includes upgrades to Chromium 114, V8 11.4, and Node.js 18.15.0. Read below for more details!

The Electron team is excited to announce the release of Electron 25.0.0! You can install it with npm via npm install electron@latest or download it from our releases website. Continue reading for details about this release.

If you have any feedback, please share it with us on Twitter, or join our community Discord! Bugs and feature requests can be reported in Electron's issue tracker.

Notable Changes


  • Implemented net.fetch within Electron's net module, using Chromium's networking stack. This differs from Node's fetch(), which uses Node.js' HTTP stack. See #36733 and #36606.
  • Added protocol.handle, which replaces and deprecates protocol.{register,intercept}{String,Buffer,Stream,Http,File}Protocol. #36674
  • Extended support for Electron 22, in order to match Chromium and Microsoft's Windows 7/8/8.1 deprecation plan. See additional details at the end of this blog post.

Stack Changes

Breaking Changes

Descontinuado: protocol.{register,intercept}{Buffer,String,Stream,File,Http}Protocol

The protocol.register*Protocol and protocol.intercept*Protocol methods have been replaced with protocol.handle.

The new method can either register a new protocol or intercept an existing protocol, and responses can be of any type.

// Deprecated in Electron 25
protocol.registerBufferProtocol('some-protocol', () => {
callback({ mimeType: 'text/html', data: Buffer.from('<h5>Response</h5>') });

// Replace with
protocol.handle('some-protocol', () => {
return new Response(
Buffer.from('<h5>Response</h5>'), // Could also be a string or ReadableStream.
{ headers: { 'content-type': 'text/html' } }
// Deprecated in Electron 25
protocol.registerHttpProtocol('some-protocol', () => {
callback({ url: '' });

// Replace with
protocol.handle('some-protocol', () => {
return net.fetch('');
// Deprecated in Electron 25
protocol.registerFileProtocol('some-protocol', () => {
callback({ filePath: '/path/to/my/file' });

// Replace with
protocol.handle('some-protocol', () => {
return net.fetch('file:///path/to/my/file');

Descontinuado: BrowserWindow.setTrafficLightPosition(position)

BrowserWindow.setTrafficLightPosition(position) has been deprecated, the BrowserWindow.setWindowButtonPosition(position) API should be used instead which accepts null instead of { x: 0, y: 0 } to reset the position to system default.

// Deprecated in Electron 25
win.setTrafficLightPosition({ x: 10, y: 10 });
win.setTrafficLightPosition({ x: 0, y: 0 });

// Replace with
win.setWindowButtonPosition({ x: 10, y: 10 });

Descontinuado: BrowserWindow.getTrafficLightPosition()

BrowserWindow.getTrafficLightPosition() has been deprecated, the BrowserWindow.getWindowButtonPosition() API should be used instead which returns null instead of { x: 0, y: 0 } when there is no custom position.

// Deprecated in Electron 25
const pos = win.getTrafficLightPosition();
if (pos.x === 0 && pos.y === 0) {
// No custom position.

// Replace with
const ret = win.getWindowButtonPosition();
if (ret === null) {
// No custom position.

New Features

  • Added net.fetch(). #36733
    • net.fetch supports requests to file: URLs and custom protocols registered with protocol.register*Protocol. #36606
  • Added BrowserWindow.set/getWindowButtonPosition APIs. #37094
  • Added protocol.handle, replacing and deprecating protocol.{register,intercept}{String,Buffer,Stream,Http,File}Protocol. #36674
  • Added a will-frame-navigate event to webContents and the <webview> tag, which fires whenever any frame within the frame hierarchy attempts to navigate. #34418
  • Added initiator information to navigator events. This information allows distinguishing from a parent frame causing a navigation, as opposed to a child-initiated navigation. #37085
  • Added net.resolveHost that resolves hosts using defaultSession object. #38152

  • Added thermal management information to powerMonitor. #38028
  • Allows an absolute path to be passed to the session.fromPath() API. #37604
  • Exposes the audio-state-changed event on webContents. #37366

22.x.y Continued Support

As noted in Farewell, Windows 7/8/8.1, Electron 22's (Chromium 108) planned end of life date will be extended from May 30, 2023 to October 10, 2023. The Electron team will continue to backport any security fixes that are part of this program to Electron 22 until October 10, 2023. The October support date follows the extended support dates from both Chromium and Microsoft. On October 11, the Electron team will drop support back to the latest three stable major versions, which will no longer support Windows 7/8/8.1.
