Building with other Cordova Versions (updated)

VoltBuilder always uses the current default version of the Cordova libraries. However, you can override this to use a different version as needed.

First, to see what version VoltBuilder is currently using, look in the log. You’ll see the platforms, plugins, Cordova and Xcode (if you’re building for iOS) versions.

Notice that it’s using ios 6.1.0 as the platform. That’s the current one.

You can specify a different one. For example, this uses the previous one: (you don’t want to do this: your app will probably not be accepted by Apple)

<engine name="ios" spec="5.1.1" />

Similarly, to use another version of Android, add this line to your config.xml:

<engine name="android" spec="9.0.0" />

Cordova Android 9.0.0 was released on Jun 29. More info here: https://cordova.apache.org/announcements/2020/06/29/cordova-android-9.0.0.html
