NWJS Version: v0.41.0+
Operating System: Windows 7, Windows 10
Reproduction Project: packagerepro.zip
Additional Note: Linux and OSX could be affected as well, not tested. No difference between using a package.nw archive or unzipped folder.
Newer versions of NWjs should start just as fast as they did before.
Newer versions start with a noticeable delay. I started NWjs at least once before doing the measurements, to avoid the 1st time caching delay that executable files usually have.
Average startup loading times*:
- v0.39.0 = ~0,5sec
- v0.40.2 = ~0,6sec
- v0.42.0 = ~6,2sec
(Tested using: Win7, Quad Core 3.4ghz CPU, 8gb RAM, Normal HDD)
*Before the game engine loader is being displayed.
How to reproduce
- Download project for reproduction
- Download mentioned NWjs versions (in my case: SDK-Win64)
