    +
    +We are happy to announce that `Apache Cordova 7.0.0` has been released!
    +
    +Most notable changes include:
    +* If a `package.json` does not exist in your project, it will be auto-created for you
when `cordova prepare` is called.
    +* When adding a platform or plugin, it will automatically save that platform or plugin
to your `config.xml` and `package.json`. Details about platform and plugin versions are also
automatically saved in `config.xml` and `package.json`. The `--save` flag is no longer required
to save. Use `--nosave` to prevent saving to `config.xml` or `package.json`.
    +* Fetch is now the default setting for fetching platforms. Fetch uses your system `npm`
to `npm install` modules into your project. The `--fetch` flag is no longer required. Use
the `--nofetch` flag to use the older cordova fetching method (pre `cordova@7`) and prevent
using `npm install` to do the fetching.
    +* After `cordova prepare` is run, `package.json` and `config.xml` should contain identical
platforms and versions.  In case of conflicts, `package.json` is given precedence over `config.xml`.
For example, suppose `package.json` contains `cordova-android@6.0.0` and `config.xml` contains
`cordova-android@4.0.0`. After `cordova prepare` is run, `config.xml` and `package.json` will
each contain only `cordova-android@6.0.0`.
    +* Users can install any platform due to removing known platform check for platform API.
For instance, users can now add custom platforms to their projects.

    @audreyso @purplecabbage I still don't understand what you guys mean exactly. People who
don't work on Cordova don't know about platform API or "known" platforms. Could it just be
this?
      - Support for custom platforms.
