Apache Cordova 3.4.0 has been officially released with a range of bug fixes for its various supported platforms, which now include Firefox OS.
Supported platforms include iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, and as we recently reported, Firefox OS is a now added to the list. Adobe PhoneGap is also based on Cordova.
For iOS, one of the more useful fixes is that large JSON payloads will now be parsed on a background thread, and will yield control when executing multiple commands is taking too long. Another nice fix means the whitelist will no longer crash when the URL path has a space.
For Windows Phone 7 and 8, createTemplates will install the theme for Visual Studio2013 as well. More importantly, Windows Phone 7 is now deprecated. The advice is that you should consider upgrading your projects to Windows Phone 8 as the team will be dropping support completely in version 3.7.0.
With the inclusion of Firefox OS Cordova now looks even more like the only sane way to build native apps that run on a range of devices. It has become the de facto standard API and displaced HTML5. All that is missing now is Chrome OS support.
