Electron is a framework for building desktop applications using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. By embedding Chromium and Node.js into its binary, Electron allows you to maintain one JavaScript codebase and create cross-platform apps that work on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Typically, the latest three stable major versions are currently supported. Only the latest minor release in each major version is supported. A new major stable version is released every 8 weeks.

ℹ️ Electron 22 is temporarily supported until October 10, 2023. This extended support is intended to help developers who still need support for Windows 7/8/8.1, which ended support in Electron 23. The October support date follows the extended support dates from both Chromium and Microsoft. On October 11, support will drop back to the latest three stable major versions.

All supported release get fixes backported that were previously merged to main, though this may be on a case-by-case basis for some older supported releases. When an API is changed or removed in a way that breaks existing functionality, the previous functionality will be supported for a minimum of two major versions when possible before being removed.

The Chromium version of Electron is usually bumped within one or two weeks after a new stable Chromium version gets released. This estimate is not guaranteed and depends on the amount of work involved with upgrading. Only the stable channel of Chromium is used. If an important fix is in Chromium’s beta or dev channel, it is back-ported.

End-of-life

When a release branch reaches the end of its support cycle, the series will be deprecated in NPM and a final end-of-support release will be made. This release will add a warning to inform that an unsupported version of Electron is in use.

The End-of-life dates for current releases are approximated using 6 months (8x3 weeks) as the lifecycle of a release.

More information is available on the Electron website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:
npm show electron version
