Phonegap / Cordova 3.6.3 & CDVPlugin class CDVNotification (pluginName: Notification) does not exist

Eager to get your hands on the new and shiny huh?

Well, if you're using the plugin: org.apache.cordova.dialogs and upgraded your project to Phonegap / Cordova 3.6.3 you're in for a world of hurt.

This plugin is what provides native notifications like alert, confirm, prompt and beep. This will, after upgrading, cease to work and you should get a confusing error message in XCode like below:

(The text from row 3 and below will vary, depending on your implementation of the plugin)

This is how to solve it:

You need to add the plugin, manually, to the build phase of the project and you need to add a framework. Sounds complicated? It really isn't. Just have a look at the image below, follow the steps and…. BOOM! You're of to stardom once again!
