DotNetBrowser 1.7 now runs on Chromium 49!

DotNetBrowser has been updated to version 1.7.

In addition to the main change, which is upgrade of the underlying Chromium engine to version 49, this release contains some important updates.

We have introduced further improvements of how we work with objects. In previous versions, we were able to register global functions and invoke them from JavaScript. Now it is possible to pass complete .NET objects to JavaScript side and invoke their methods as if they were regular JavaScript objects. You can get a deeper insight on this improvement in the migration guide we have prepared.

Also, we have applied fixes and improvements for the lightweight control rendering and added certificate validation API.

See the full list of changes available in this release on the DotNetBrowser Release Notes page.

The update is available for download.

As always, we'll be happy to answer your questions about our product on Stack Overflow under #dotnetbrowser tag.
