rogerwang edited this page Nov 7, 2012 · 4 revisions

In v0.3.2, there're four major changes:

  • Fix of message loop integration on Mac, which should have solved performance problem for cases that need heavy data transfer in node.
  • Fix of native modules support on Windows [1]: users should build native modules with nw-gyp, which is a hack on node-gyp
  • The ability to handle files and arguments [2], which would be necessary for apps like IDEs and text editors.
  • Implementation of window menu [3], with the window menu API you can create native window menus on all platforms using javascript.
