We are happy to announce that
Cordova Android 5.0.0 has been released.
With this release, there is now support for Android Marshmallow permission checking in plugins. Due to the nature of the recent Android changes, the major version has been incremented to reflect the new API changes. Only plugins that use certain permissions as defined by Google are affected by this change. The following core plugins needed to be updated:
We are in the process of releasing these plugins to npm. If you decide to update to
firstname.lastname@example.org before we release the plugins, please install these updated plugins via
git for now.
cordova plugin add https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-camera.git
