Capacitor 3.0’s major updates include improved performance, enhanced developer experience, and greater community involvement. Check out the launch video:
With the release of Capacitor 3.0, we’re planting a stake in the ground: Capacitor is now the standard for web developers building mobile apps. We’re firmly committed to making mobile development just as good as web development, and that’s exactly what Capacitor enables. Whether you have an existing web project or are curious about starting a new mobile project, we hope you’ll check out Capacitor.Read More

Capacitor 3.0 development underway
Like any major version change, Capacitor 3.0 will include some new features, but also some changes to how plugins are consumed. We’ve been tracking our ideas on GitHub and have created a few issues to share our plans. This covers new features and bug fixes to Capacitor-Core, as well as splitting out the plugins to their own packages.
If you want to check on the progress or find the reason for these changes, we have a main Capacitor 3.0 issue which covers this.
There are also two other issues related to plugins and upgrade guides you could also track as well:
With all of this work being done, we are looking for feedback from the community, so join the Discussions tab on GitHub and let us know your thoughts.
Capacitor Community Organization
We mentioned this earlier in the year, but we’ve been working on a new community organization for Capacitor. This is a group effort involving many community members with the goal of providing a community curated set of plugins. Think of this as “blessed” plugins that the community has worked on and that we want to elevate. If you’re looking to add some features to your Capacitor app, be sure to see what the community org has to offer. And if you’re looking to get involved, we have a list of plugin proposals that people can contribute to.
A huge thank you to the community members working on this!

Definitely a must read!
