>                 Key: CB-9528
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Plugin Screen Orientation
>            Reporter: Tony Homer
>            Assignee: Tony Homer
> Create a new core Cordova plugin that enables the user to dynamically control the orientation
of their app.
> The interface will be based on [the screen-orientation spec|].
> There is a precedent for this behavior being supported as part of Cordova.
> Previously iOS supported a non-standard approach to controlling the orientation dynamically
(see last entry in [this section of the 5.1.1 docs|]).
> Recent platform changes made the iOS-specific approach untenable, but it's removal prompted
a discussion about enabling this as a cross-platform feature via a new core plugin.
> See related discussion in CB-8047.
> The new core plugin will be based on an existing community-created plugin:
> Work is underway to make the changes needed for it to become a core plugin (switch license
to Apache, fix open issues, add tests, update interface to latest spec, etc.).
