Camera Plugin Released!
By: Bryan Ellis
18 Sep 2020

We are happy to announce that we have just released an update to our camera plugin!

Release Highlights

In this major release, we have:

  • removed the DestinationType of NATIVE_URI that was used only in the iOS and Windows platform. For iOS, the NATIVE_URI returned an ALAssetsLibrary that had been deprecated and does not work with the WKWevView.
  • removed the CordovaUri class helper that used fuzzy logic to guess the image path from the content URL. This process was not necessary as we know the file path beforehand.
  • bumped the project requirement definition. This plugin version requires Cordova CLI >= 9.0.0. If building for Android, this plugin version will also require the Cordova Android platform >= 9.0.0.
  • changed the location of the temporary saved images from external to internal cache.

  • GH-637 breaking: remove NATIVE_URI DestinationType
