Today I’m thrilled to announce that Capacitor 3 is ready for public beta! The Capacitor team is looking forward to hearing feedback on it from our developer community. 💖
A New Milestone
Last year we announced Capacitor 2, which brought important platform updates to the ecosystem such as Swift 5 and AndroidX. Since then, we’ve been delighted to see massive adoption in the community. Usage has more than doubled this year alone! It’s clear that developers who use Capacitor share our commitment to staying modern and providing the very best app experiences.
For 3.0, we are focusing our attention on these areas of improvement:
- Community involvement
- First-class APIs
- Developer experience and productivity
Capacitor 3 is more than just the “next version” of Capacitor. It is a crucial milestone for the project: the core team has grown significantly since the 2.0 release and now has the bandwidth and experience necessary to dedicate more time to the community, more time for prototyping and innovation, more time for stability and maintenance, and more time to deliver on Capacitor’s promise of making it easy to build web apps that run natively on iOS, Android, and the Web.
