    I noticed in the release notes for AppBuilder 3.7 that support for Apache Cordova 3.5.0, 3.7.0, and 3.8.0 has been removed.

    Do you plan to remove support for Cordova 4.0 and if you do, what's the timeline?

    The project I'm  working on now is currently targeting Cordova 4.0 and I'm wondering if I should upgrade it to 5.0 or 6.4.

    It makes me a little nervous to update the version as many hours have been testing in the AWS device farm and if I update, all of the features of the app will need to be re-tested.

    Hello Joe,

    Our procedure for removing support for Cordova versions is the following. First, we announce that we are deprecating the given Cordova set and a couple of releases after that we remove our support for it. With this in mind, I cannot give you a precise timeframe for when the Cordova 4.0.0 support will be removed, however, it is highly unlikely that we will stop supporting it in the next 6 months.

    Nevertheless, I would recommend updating your app to target a more recent version of Cordova - 6.4.0 being the best candidate. This will help you avoid any future issues caused by the constant changes to the iOS and Android OSs.

    I hope this helps. Please, let me know if I can provide you with additional information on this subject.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.

    Thanks a bunch, that makes perfect sense, I actually already updated to 5.0 and everything looks good (tested on 10 devices).

    I think I'll just go ahead and update it to 6.4.0 and see what happens.
