Cordova Android 6.3.0 Released!
27 Sep 2017

We are happy to announce that Cordova Android 6.3.0 has been released!

This release now targets the latest Android API level of API 26 and has fixed issues related to the Android SDK Tools 26.0.2 release. Google changed how the Android emulator was executed, causing errors when deploying to the emulator.

This release contains the integration of cordova-plugin-compat, so please remove that plugin from projects once you update to this version of cordova-android.

To upgrade:

npm install -g cordova
cd my_project
cordova platform update android@6.3.0

To add it explicitly:

cordova platform add android@6.3.0
