Cordova Android 6.2.3 Released!
By: Fil Maj
04 May 2017

We are happy to announce that Cordova Android 6.2.3 has been released! This patch release actually adds support for the Android SDK Tools v26 and newer. Unfortunately, we forgot to include these changes in the 6.2.2 release.

We strongly recommend upgrading to this version if you are using the latest Android SDK Tools. Older versions of cordova-android do not work with the latest Android SDK Tools!

To upgrade:

npm install -g cordova
cd my_project
cordova platform update android@6.2.3

To add it explicitly:

cordova platform add android@6.2.3

This release will have to be explicitly added until the upcoming cordova@7 release, where it will be pinned as the default android platform.

What's new in Android

  • CB-12640 Support for Android SDK Tools v26 and newer. Flipped AVD parsing logic so that it always tries to use avdmanager to retrieve AVDs first, then falls back to android command if avdmanager cannot be found. Improve handling of SDK tools commands on Windows.
