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 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.

A large part of Electron’s functionality is provided by Chromium, Node.js, and V8, the core components that make up Electron. As such, a key goal for the Electron team is to keep up with changes to these projects as much as possible, providing developers who build Electron apps access to the new web and JavaScript features. To this end, Electron 4 features major version bumps to each of these components; Electron v4.0.0 includes Chromium 69.0.3497.106, Node 10.11.0, and V8 6.9.427.24.

In addition, Electron 4 includes changes to Electron-specific APIs. You can find a summary of the major changes in Electron here.
