Support for Ionic 4 in Mobile Foundation v8.0

We are pleased to announce the official support of Ionic 4 in IBM Mobile Foundation v8.0. This support is introduced from iFix onwards.

You are required to install the ionic application with cordova-plugin-mfp version 8.0.2019031808 or greater.

We have validated the following Mobile Foundation v8.0 Foundation features with the stable release of Ionic 4.

  • Invoking back-end procedures through adapters
  • Application Authenticity
  • Application management
  • JSONStore
  • Direct Update
  • Oauth handshake with Mobile Foundation server
  • Push notifications

From this release onwards, the cordova-plugin-mfp is not compatible with the version 1.x of cordova-plugin-ionic-webview, as it contains major webview changes. This release of cordova-plugin-mfp removes support for cordova-plugin-ionic-weview version 1.x and below. Please update cordova-plugin-ionic-webview to version 2.0 or higher.

Inclusive terminology note: The Mobile First Platform team is making changes to support the IBM® initiative to replace racially biased and other discriminatory language in our code and content with more inclusive language. While IBM values the use of inclusive language, terms that are outside of IBM's direct influence are sometimes required for the sake of maintaining user understanding. As other industry leaders join IBM in embracing the use of inclusive language, IBM will continue to update the documentation to reflect those changes.
