Bug Fixes

  • The error thrown when a missing remote object is accessed now includes the id
    of the object and the name of the property being accessed or method being
    called. #8003

Windows

  • Fixed an issue where the window would restore to the incorrect size when
    minWidth was used. #8047

macOS

  • Fixed an issue where systemPreferences.getUserDefault would crash when
    requesting a value as an array or dictionary. #7993

API Changes

  • The implementation of chrome.runtime.onMessage used by dev tools extensions
    now supports a response callback parameter. #7974
  • toggledevtools and reload are now supported menu item roles. #7981
  • Added a setLayoutZoomLevelLimits method to webFrame, webContents, and
    <webview> that can be used to set the layout-based zoom level limits of a
    page. The setZoomLevelLimits API has been deprecated and renamed to
    setVisualZoomLeveLimits to control the pinch-to-zoom level.
    setZoomLevelLimits will be completely removed in Electron 2.0. #8041

macOS

  • shell.openExternal is now asynchronous if the final specified argument is
    a callback function. #7612
  • A zoomToPageWidth option was added to the BrowserWindow constructor that
    controls how the window resizes when running the Window > Zoom menu item or
    when option-clicking the green stoplight toolbar button. #7776
