Cordova iOS 4.2.0
23 Jun 2016

We are happy to announce that Cordova iOS 4.2.0 has been released!

Along with some bug fixes, this release adds support for node 6 to cordova-ios!

A new version of the cordova-cli will need to be released to pin this version of cordova-ios as the default version when creating a new project. If you want to start using this version now, make sure to specify the version when doing a cordova platform add/update.

Note: When updating, make sure to save your plugins as current unsaved plugins may not be reinstalled otherwise. Run the following command in your project to save your currently installed plugins into config.xml:

cordova plugin save

To upgrade:

npm install -g cordova
cd my_project
cordova platform rm ios
cordova platform add ios@4.2.0

To add it explicitly:

cordova platform add ios@4.2.0
