Debian stable binary version #1646

It seems that all recent prebuilt binaries (after 0.7.5) of node-webkit don't work on Debian stable (Wheezy) because of use of too recent libc6 version :

./nw: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ./nw)
./nw: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by ./nw)

Debian stable only has libc6 2.13 !
Would it be possible to have a recent debian-stable-compatible binary version available on download ?

Confirmed. NSS_3.14.3 is missing aswell.. Temp fix is doing

apt-get -t testing libc6-dev libnss3-dev

But it kinda sucks that my users will have to go through this too.

@wildtron if it's 2.15 it should work. Sure it's not 2.14?

Also updating your glibc can potentially break your system. Anyone built node-webkit against the older GLIBC version?

This should be working with latest version now.

In 0.13 we changed to an optimized architecture so more features can be supported, see and it's good for keeping up with Chromium upstream -- we released with Node.js v6.0 and new Chromium versions within 1 day after upstream release.

The new version would fixed many issues reported here and we're scrubbing them. This issue is closed as we believe it should be fixed. Please leave a message if it isn't and we'll reopen it.
