PhoneGap 1.3 released!

We've got a holiday present for you, it's PhoneGap 1.3! In this release, we've fixed tons of bugs and we're stoked to announce major enhancements to BlackBerry and Windows Phone!

For BlackBerry, we’ve added OSX support – now you can develop for BlackBerry on a Mac!

For Windows Phone, users can now sink their teeth into the full PhoneGap API, Windows Phone Getting Started Guide, more documentation updates, and tons of plugins.

PhoneGap 1.3.0 is also available on PhoneGap Build – by default, all new apps will be built with 1.3.0. Any existing apps will remain on 1.1.0, and users can choose between 1.1.0, 1.2.0 and 1.3.0 for building apps for five different platforms.

Read the full list of changes here.
