HTMLTexture update to Chromium 54

Thanks to MESO our HTMLTexture (EX9.Texture) node got another update to version 3.2840.1513.gf7effc7 (Chromium 54.0.2840.59) of the Chromium Embedded Framework.

The most important change compared to version 3.1750.1738 (Chromium 33.0) shipped with beta34.2 is probably the improved font-rendering quality by making use of DirectWrite.

For a complete list of changes between Chromium 33.0 and 54.0 have a look at the official development blog of Chromium.

Advanced features like WebGL, Flash, PDF rendering etc. should all be working, but compared to Chrome itself playback of H.264 encoded video files will not work because we do not have a license to ship these proprietary codecs. For a more detailed discussion have a look here.
In case you need to support these codecs you'll have to build the exact same CEF version we're using (3.2840.1513.gf7effc7) on your own (with set GYP_DEFINES="proprietary_codecs=1") and replace our shipped CEF files with those of your custom build.

As always the node can be tested using our latest alpha builds.

joreg: @cznickesz: we're hoping this week. but depends on feedback. please test your project and let us know if it works.

cznickesz: @joreg: I should stop asking my questions so cryptic ;-) So right away: is final Beta39 hours, days or weeks away?

~3d ago

joreg: @cznickesz: the idea of an RC is exactly to make sure your projects will work with it. your last chance to report problems with b39.

cznickesz: So how "RC" is the "RC3"? I have to update an old project soon and I´m wondering if I should wait and directly update to Beta39

~3d ago

joreg: @takuma, the "one frame" issue was fixed in RC3 for beta39, see: beta39-release-candidate

Takuma: @joreg thank!! Ill try this. Are there a way to send video texture from vvvv to vl? fromimage node in vl somehow only sends 1 frame

cznickesz: @ravasquez thx, so I need to stop avoiding nuget in the end ;-)
