Subject Re: Dropping iOS 5.0 support
Date Mon, 17 Feb 2014 06:05:55 GMT
Hi all,

So it's an unanimous decision? @Brian L?
I don't see any opposition to this since this thread started in Sept 2013!
Drop it like it's hot!

Reminder - iOS 5 is currently the default deployment target for projects
created with CLI (cordova create).

Regards,
Ally.
