Subject [GitHub] cordova-wp8 pull request: Added Newtonsoft json dll
Date Tue, 12 May 2015 18:33:38 GMT
Github user nikhilkh commented on the pull request:
    @purplecabbage I'm really concerned with this switch for WP8 as it is breaking in nature.
It changes how the Cordova WP8 JSON APIs behave and will cause a fair number of plugins to
break. All plugins that break will have to make updates to support the new WP8 platform, and
hence can't be used with the older version (3.x) of the WP8 platform. 
    I would propose we don't make this disruptive change for WP8 which is a platform with
limited runway as WP8.1+ should be using the Windows platform. WP8 should ideally be on life
support and not making disruptive breaking changes that affect the plugin ecosystem.
    We should consider an incremental fix for file transfer and other plugins that need better
support for JSON parsing instead of changing the platform itself:
