Subject Re: Let's try to release Cordova-Android 4.0.x soon
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2014 15:18:27 GMT
This is high on my list as well, but I'd really like to try switching
CordovaWebView to a class rather than an interface, and I won't have time
to do that until close to the end of the month.

One step along the way we can do right now though is switch 3.x branch over
to using Gradle by default. WDYT?
