The development team for PhoneGap announced the release of PhoneGap 2.4.0, the latest version of the PhoneGap open source, cross-platform mobile development framework based on HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. PhoneGap 2.4.0 is primarily a bug-fix release and also includes enhancements to Cordova iOS. (Cordova refers to Apache Cordova, the “engine that powers PhoneGap,” comprising an open source set of JavaScript APIs for supporting mobile devices for Windows Phone, iPhone, Android, and other mobile platforms).

The PhoneGap team has posted the complete changelog listing all fixes and other changes in PhoneGap 2.4.0 on the PhoneGap GitHub page. The Adobe PhoneGap Build team is providing support for version 2.4.0.

Among the changes to Cordova iOS in version 2.4.0 are removal of JSONKit and replacement with NSJSONSerialization, the ability to specify the start page in config.xml via the content tag, and support for the FileTransfer “trustAllHosts” parameter, in addition to other features and fixes.
