Release Highlights

In addition to various improvements and fixes, this release has updated its core library.

All of the latest platform releases are available by default.

  • cordova-electron@^1.0.0
  • cordova-ios@^5.0.0

Additionally, Cordova Electron, one of the newest supported platfroms, is available!

This release has also deprecated the browserify, fetch, and copy-from options.

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.
