Apache Cordova / Adobe PhoneGap 3.0 Released

Apache Cordova aka Adobe PhoneGap – an open source framework for creating mobile apps using web technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) – has been released in version 3.0.

The major new features are:

  • New plugin architecture – even the base APIs – like accessing the camera or address book – have been extracted to plugins so you can include the neccessary APIs only, which should result in a reduced app size.
  • New CLI tools with integration of PhoneGap Build, so you don’t have to install the platform SDKs locally.
  • Support for iOS6, Windows Phone 8, and BlackBerry 10. Support for iOS7, Firefox OS and Ubuntu will follow.
  • New APIs: InAppBrowser and Globalization.

For further details, take a look at the official announcement.
