This release of AppBuilder introduces the following notable resolved issues.
Missing or invalid component options.
The AppBuilder Windows client, the AppBuilder extension for Visual Studio and the AppBuilder command-line interface for Windows no longer support .NET 4.0. To continue working with any of these clients, update to .NET 4.5 or later.
The AppBuilder command-line interface now requires the latest Node.js 0.10.x or Node.js 0.12.x to run. You cannot install and run the AppBuilder command-line interface on Node.js 4.x.
Deprecated the appbuilder update-kendoui command in the AppBuilder command-line interface. This command will be removed in a future release. Use the appbuilder kendoui commands instead.
AppBuilder no longer builds Apache Cordova 3.7.0 and later projects to support the armv7s architecture.
AppBuilder now builds Apache Cordova 4.0.0 projects with Xcode 7 and the iOS 9 SDK.
Starting with AppBuilder 3.0, support for NativeScript versions earlier than NativeScript 1.1.2 will be deprecated. Deprecated versions will be removed in a future release.
