We are happy to announce that
Cordova Android 6.2.1 has been released!
This release has fixed issues introduced by the Android SDK Tools 25.3.1 release. Google dropped support for the
android binary, so
cordova-android has now adopted support for the
sdkmanager binaries. We have also taken the opportunity to rewrite how we use gradle on the user's system.
cordova-android now requires Android Studio or Gradle to be installed on the user's system.
This release also adds support for the
<resource-file> element in
config.xml which copies specified files during a
cordova prepare. This allows providing arbitrary files such as special notification-sized icons, or API configuration JSON files.
npm install -g cordova cd my_project cordova platform update email@example.com
To add it explicitly:
cordova platform add firstname.lastname@example.org
This release will have to be explicitly added until the upcoming
cordova@7 release, where it will be pinned as the default android platform.
