[ANNOUNCE] Apache Cordova 3.6 Release

The Apache Cordova community is proud to announce the release of Apache
Cordova 3.6.

Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to
access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from
JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo
Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with
just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

The 3.6 release addresses bug fixes and some minor enhancements.

Most notable changes include:

* Android and Amazon FireOS platforms include a new whitelist for
controlling the launch of external applications via intents. Also support
for gradle was added.
* CB-6761 Android: Fix native->JS bridge ceasing to fire when page changes
and online is set to false and the JS loads quickly
* Windows8 platform is now called Windows to indicate the support for
windows universal apps. The windows8/windows platform now supports building
apps targeting Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 in addition to Windows 8
which was originally supported (see documentation for new –win and –phone
Command Line switches).
* For targeting Windows Phone 8.0, the wp8 is still supported.
* Support for Windows Universal Apps is being added.

The release is available from:


In the first 48 hours, the release will be propagating to the mirrors, so
allow time for it to show up in a mirror near you.

The release is also available via npm:

npm -g install cordova

The Apache Cordova website has been updated to reflect the release,
including documentation. Details on this release can be found on this blog
