Subject Re: Work items for v1.5.0 - Name change
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 20:53:00 GMT
Well I think my branch is ready to go in now. Testing has gone well
and I'd prefer to get this into the repo earlier rather than later in
order to shake out any issues before we get ready to ship 1.5.0 on
February 27th. If we are going to hold that date it only gives us
three weeks before we go live and we probably should code freeze
before that as we have major changes planned including:

* PhoneGap -> Apache Cordova name change
* CordovaView
* Cordova-JS

So if there are no major objections I'd like to commit my change
tomorrow so we can have more soak time.

Also, I took a stab as making all the necessary changes to android/bin
but if you can test it that would be fantastic.
