There are a lot of applications that use an outdated version of Electron, the worst ones being those that still use Electron 12. And I have seen too many cases of it, cough cough Roam Research cough cough.

I don’t know the reason why they these developers won’t upgrade their Electron versions. Incompatibility issues? Inconsistencies? What are they afraid of? Personally, I’m all in for newer versions.

Newer versions support better hardware acceleration, and have support for Wayland and Pipewire. Not to mention all the general performance & security improvements.

Developers, please, upgrade your Electron versions at some point in the near future. Or, just stop building in Electron altogether, but I think I’m asking for too much ;)
