Add plugin by ID
This release, we added a new option in the custom tab of the config designer that allows you to add a plugin by plugin id. Plugin ids are the npm package name of each plugin (e.g. cordova-plugin-device).
New start page
We've updated our start page to make it more actionable and useful for devs getting started with our tools.
Crash in local iOS deploy
We fixed a crash when deploying to local iOS devices. The crash would happen in cases where iTunes wasn't configured properly.
Hang opening project
We had a customer report of a hang opening a very large Cordova project. Upon investigation, we found that we were spending a lot of time trying to resolve URLs for intellisense that would never resolve. This has been fixed in Update 9. Big thanks to Carey for helping us get to the bottom of this issue!
We fixed a number of crashes that were reported to us from our crash reporting system.
