Re: [eclipse-dev] SWT Chromium support requires external update sites?

Hey Fred,

as far as I know the chromium support in SWT is there, but requires the binaries to be installed since the full Chromium code itself is not shipped by SWT.

In addition to that those binaries are not very up-to-date at the moment. They contain Chromium 59, which is quite outdated and hard crash on first use after install (at least for us).
We implemented some nice stuff on top of it, but are eagerly waiting for an update version of the binaries to be more robust and up-to-date.
