Apache Cordova iOS 3.8.0
25 Feb 2015

UPDATE: To deploy to iOS devices, developers will have to update their ios-deploy dependency to the latest release. Run npm install ios-deploy -g to download the latest release of version 1.4.0.

We are happy to announce that Cordova iOS 3.8.0 has been released!

This release has various bug fixes, and will be the default iOS version when the cordova-cli 4.3.0 is released. This release also requires Xcode 6.

To upgrade:

npm install -g cordova
cd my_project
cordova platform update ios

To add it explicitly:

cordova platform add ios@3.8.0

For non-CLI projects or for pre-3.0 projects, refer to the upgrade guides.
