Version 3.5.0 of Apache Cordova has been released! According to Apache's release announcement, there are quite a few changes here. They list the biggest changes as follows: 

  • Common code between cordova-cli & cordova-plugman has been moved into its own repo named cordova-lib.
  • Each platform now has a package.json file and has been uploaded to npm. Future updates to the cordova-cli will make use of npm instead of git for loading platforms.
  • CB-4863 - Drop iOS 5.0 support, and support arm64. New projects are built as a universal binary (64 and 32-bit), and require a minimum deployment target of iOS 6.0.
  • This is the last release with support for WP7
  • Added Chrome devtools support for debug builds for amazon-fireos

The announcement also includes upgrade instructions, as well as platform-specific descriptions of changes, covering what's been done when it comes to:

  • Android
  • iOS
  • Windows Phone 7 & 8
