The Apache Cordova team has just released Cordova 2.9.1. Wait what?! You read right! We have backported some bug fixes to the Cordova 2 series for all of you that haven’t upgraded to the Cordova 3 series yet. Hurray! Among other fixes, this release backports iOS 7 support.
Users can download the source zip from https://www.apache.org/dist/cordova/cordova-2.9.1-src.zip
