Subject RE: [Discuss] Deprecate platform Windows 8.0
Date Tue, 02 Feb 2016 10:04:16 GMT
Hi guys,

Please review the PR [1] removing Windows 8.0 project, specific code, references and adding
a deprecation message:
"windows8 platform is deprecated. To use windows-target-version=8.0 you may downgrade to cordova-windows@4."

The target version for this is cordova-windows@5 as this will be a breaking change.

It would be great to get some feedback on the wording as well.

[1]: https://github.com/apache/cordova-windows/pull/147 

Please let me know if you have any questions or considerations.

Best regards,
Sergey Shakhnazarov.

+1 on deprecation to the platform. I think we should also ensure that all plugins now refer
to Windows instead of windows8 platform.

cordova-windows contains code for windows universal apps ( windows 8.1 and
wp8.1 )
It also contains legacy support for windows8.0

To target wp8.1 you :
> cordova platform add windows

# deploy app to Windows Phone 8.1 emulator
> cordova run windows -- --phone

# deploy app to connected device
> cordova run windows --device -- --phone
