Electron 3.0: New Button and Textfield API
New are the
Textfield APIs. However, they are currently still in an experimental phase and must be activated if required via the build flag
enable_view_api . Also new:
fs.readSync now works with large files. Previously, large amounts of data meant that the function did not work correctly.
Electron 3.0 removed the events
did-get-redirect-request . In addition, the Electron team points out that the PDF ad is currently not working. In later updates, the function should be made available again.
