By: Bryan Ellis
16 Aug 2021

We are happy to announce that we have just released a minor update for Cordova Android (10.1.0)! This is one of Cordova's supported platforms for building Android mobile applications.

To upgrade:

cordova platform remove android
cordova platform add android@10.1.0

Release Highlights

In this minor release, we:

  • Bump Core Libraries

    • AndroidX AppCompat@1.3.1
    • Google Services Gradle Plugin@4.3.8
    • Kotlin@1.5.21
  • Added HTTP Scheme Support

    In the Cordova-Android 10.0.0 release, we introduced support for the WebViewAssetLoader. By default, we only supported the https scheme. Some users requested http scheme support; as not all users were able to loading resources through a secure protocol.

    Users are now able to use either https (default) or http by setting the scheme preference flag.

      <preference name="scheme" value="http" />

    The default scheme will remain as https, as we believe apps should be secure.

Please report any issues you find at!
