A new version is available for download. In this version the Chromium engine has been upgraded to version 90.

What’s New

Chromium 90

Chromium has been updated to version 90.0.4430.93.

This Chromium version includes several important security fixes, so we recommend that you upgrade to this version.


Right now to create an Engine instance we should use the following way:

Engine engine = Engine.newInstance(

Very often we don’t need to pass any options at all, so we decided to introduce an alternative more shorten way of creating Engine:

Engine engine = Engine.newInstance(HARDWARE_ACCELERATED);
