Status report for the Apache Cordova project - September 2019


A platform for building native mobile applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript.


There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.


cordova-electron@1.1.1 was the only platform release in this quarter. cordova-android@8.1.0 is being voted on currently, and will be released shortly. We will also be making some large changes to iOS as Apple has made it clear that they may soon reject app submissions for apps using depracated APIs. Discussions are happening currently so we can find the best solution that does not break existing applications/plugins and meets Apple's requirements.

Health report:

Our status dashboard at is mostly all green - failures are usually due to external service issues that do device testing. Our nightly builds remain extremely stable.

We are still working to resolve all existing issues in JIRA while also maintaining all the new issues and pull requests in Github.
