v2.2.0 - 2022-11-09โ€‹

Addedโ€‹

  • Wails now uses a purpose built, native Go implementation of Microsoft's webview2loader dll. This means there is no need to embed the Webview2Loader.dll file in your binaries, meaning filesizes will be ~130k smaller! Thanks to @stffabi for this awesome contribution!
  • This release provides much more control over custom asset handling via the new AssetServer options. This allows you to provide your own custom asset handler and hook into the request chain through middleware. Thanks to @stffabi for this awesome contribution and @mholt for the initial idea and extensive testing.
  • It is now possible to customise the layout of your Wails projects using 2 new options in wails.json:
    • build:dir can be used to specify where the build files reside
    • frontend:dir can be used to specify where the frontend files reside
    • If go.mod is not found in the same directory as wails.json, the cli will look up the parent directories to find it. Fixed by @leaanthony in this PR
  • Colour output in the CLI can now be turned off by using the --nocolor flag. This is useful for CI/CD pipelines. Thanks to @scottopell for the PR
  • A JSON schema definition for the wails.json file has been added. IDEs should now provide code complete when editing wails.json. Thanks to @binyamin for the PR
  • The EventsOn* methods now return a function that can be called to deregister the listener. Thanks to @joshbuddy for the PR
