Good news everyone! The PhoneGap Desktop app now ships with an installer for OS X and Windows!

PhoneGap Desktop Installer

What’s New

The major highlights allow us to start rapid releases:

  • OS X installer.
  • Windows installer, which should address some security issues.
  • Update notification when a new version is available (we promise to not release as often as Adobe Reader).

For those interested in the full CHANGELOG:

  • #63 Add desktop installers for OS X and Windows.
  • #232 Prototype auto-updaer support and settle on update notification.
  • #250 Fix case-sensitive filenames that affect some operating systems.
  • #253 Fixed analytics returning null for debug builds.
  • #254 Add operating system to analytics.
  • #278 Fix navigator.contacts.pickContact as undefined.
  • #281 Add the standard EULA to each installer.
  • #287 Update to connect-phonegap@0.14.8.
