Electron is a popular project from GitHub that’s heavily used to create desktop apps with modern Web technologies (such as VS Code and Slack’s desktop client). 4.0 introduces some new features but notably bumps up the underlying dependencies to Chromium 69, Node 10.11, and V8 6.9.
The Electron team is excited to announce that the stable release of Electron 4 is now available! You can install it from electronjs.org or from npm via
npm install electron@latest. The release is packed with upgrades, fixes, and new features, and we can’t wait to see what you build with them.
10.11.0, and V8
