PhoneGap 1.3 Released
Written by Ian Elliot

Full support for Windows Phone 7 is the major new feature of PhoneGap 1.3. And with the next release (1.4) the PhoneGap will become known as Apache Cordova.

There are lots of new features in the latest release of PhoneGap, the first since it became an Apache incubator project with the proposed name "Callback". It has now decided on the alternative name of Apache Cordova - but this name change is postponed until release 1.4. It will be interesting to see if the new name catches on - too many programmers have been calling it PhoneGap for quite a while!

While there are plenty of fixes and new features tools and controls for Android and iOS in release 1.3, the main changes affect BlackBerry - OSX support which permits development on the Mac - and Windows Phone 7 - which is now fully supported by the PhoneGap API. The move to include Windows Phone 7 as a full member of the PhoneGap club means that you really can just just HTML5/JavaScript to develop for all of the major phone platforms.

The new version will also be the default for the PhoneGap Build web service.
