Dawning of a more open and exciting future

2020 ushers in a number of exciting possibilities for the framework. Making v8 the official iOS runtime to align both Android and iOS runtimes is a top priority, improvements to the management of all open source surrounding NativeScript providing easier ways to contribute as well as speed up publishing fixes/features to the community.
