Per 6 month deprecation policy: http://wiki.apache.org/cordova/DeprecationPolicy
Hello, I am a little confused about the Deprecation Policy. Will the Plugin shim that Andrew Grieve wrote be removed in 2.7 or in the next major release (3.0)? The Policy seems to indicate that the shim will remain until 3.0 but this ticket has a fix version of 2.7. Thanks for the clarification.
The 6 month policy was by consensus: http://markmail.org/thread/2kv55uttofg5np7h
We should update the wiki.
2.3.0 was released Jan 7 2013 - so 2.7.0 sounds about right?
That's correct. We should just remove the plugin shim now, since it's confusing to plugin developers.
You should probably get the last say on whether this gets cut.
Yes! Let's remove it. The conversion between the two is not too hard, so this will be good motivation. The main reason I'd like it gone is that it has an "isSync" function. I'll discuss a bit more in: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-2963
Hi. Could someone add this link:
To wiki (in The type "Plugin" is deprecated section):
Also you should probably add info in the table that it was deprecated in 3.0.
Good suggestion. Simon's blog post doesn't mention threading, so I don't think it's a good idea to link to it. I've instead added a link to our plugin guide.
