Subject Release 2.9.1 and 2.9.2
Date Thu, 11 Jul 2013 08:39:46 GMT
Will 2.9.1 be available as a zip download? What changes will it include
(in addition to the video duration issue)?

The latest version on npm is 2.9.2 but the VERSION is "dev". Is there an
official date for this (and 2.9.1)?

We would like to make a decision very soon on migrating from 2.7 to
2.9.x but facing a few hurdles
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-4149

Thanks,
Angela

v3.0?

The git commit log would be the most accurate source of truth. The .zip
releases of Cordova include the git log output between releases (e.g.
"git log 2.8.0..2.9.0" for each repository in the release)
