We are happy to announce that we have just released Cordova OSX 5.0.0! This is one of Cordova's supported platforms for building macOS desktop applications.

Release Highlights

In addition to various fixes, this release also includes support for Swift 4 and the app store icon.

Additional, as NodeJS 4.x support has been dropped by the NodeJS team on April 30th, 2018, we have raised the minimum required NodeJS version for this release to 6.x.

Please report any issues you find at!
