Splash Screen and InAppBrowser plugin Released!
13 Jun 2020

We are happy to announce that we have just released an update to some plugins!

Release Highlights


The most notable changes in this major release are:

  • The Cordova-iOS 6.x platform removes all UIWebView code and this version also removes the UIWebView code from the InAppBrowser plugin GH-635.
  • For backwards compatibility, this plugin used to hook However, the plugin-installed hook of could have unintended side effects (especially if this plugin is included only as a dependency of another plugin) and it has been removed in this release. GH-599
  • The InAppBrowser plugin used to implement its own status bar. It has been removed in this release to correctly display the content of the iOS status bar without overlapping the content in the InAppBrowser on different devices. GH-656

Splash Screen

In the Cordova-iOS 6.x platform, the splash screen feature has been integrated into its core and no longer needs this plugin. This release prevents the plugin from being added to the iOS 6.x platform.
