Apache Cordova aka PhoneGap now includes full support for Windows Phone 8 application with new v2.3.0. Also the Internet Explorer 10 in WP8 is the engine behind the WebBrowser control in Cordova for WP8 which brings many enhancements.

What’s New?

WP8 apps load faster because they do not need to unpack resources to Isolated Storage. In WP7 Cordova, when the app launched all of the JavaScript, CSS, and HTML had to be moved to the application’s sandboxed file system to allow linking to work. WP8 has removed this step.

Multiple screen sizes, Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), ES5, gesture events, and more ….aspx)
