    +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, the previous default behavior of not-saving has changed
to saving. Now 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 method 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 revert to pre-`Cordova@7.0` behavior (`npm install` is not used to
fetch modules).
    +* 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`.
    +* We have added support for custom platforms. This will allow future custom platforms,
and modified versions of existing platforms.
    +* Platforms and plugins are now required to have a `package.json` file.
