The following were recently released:

  • cordova-plugin-geolocation: 2.4.0
  • cordova-create: 1.0.1
  • cordova-app-hello-world: 3.11.0

Google recently sent out warnings to everyone who uses cordova-plugin-geolocation about having to include android.hardware.location.gps to their AndroidManifest.xml. We updated cordova-plugin-geolocation plugin to auto add this setting to your project's AndroidManifest.xml when installing the plugin. This means that the geolocation plugin will only work on android devices that have a GPS. Let us know if this restriction affects you negatively.

Release Highlights:

  • cordova-app-hello-world: Updated default CSP to include img-src and add content: to it for CB-4078

You can update any plugin by removing it, and then re-adding it.

E.g. To update your geolocation plugin:

cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-geolocation --save
cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-geolocation@latest --save

Changes include:


  • Ubuntu Fix altitude & accuracies retrieval
  • CB-11875 added android.hardware.location.gps uses-feature.


  • removed stripping eventlisteners


  • CB-11938 updated csp to include content: for img-src
