The following plugins were updated today:

The most noticeable changes in this release are to the File plugin. It has been revamped to use a new URL scheme cdvfile://localhost/<filesystemType>/<path to file>. These URLs are generated by all file operations, and are passed over the bridge to native code. (This is in contrast to the previous version, which passed around absolute paths on the device filesystem).

Most of these changes are to bring us more in line with the HTML Filesystem standard, although they will also allow us to extend the filesystem abstraction to cover new kinds of storage, both internal and external to devices.

Other changes include:

org.apache.cordova.battery-status

org.apache.cordova.camera

org.apache.cordova.console

org.apache.cordova.contacts

org.apache.cordova.device

org.apache.cordova.device-motion

org.apache.cordova.device-orientation

org.apache.cordova.dialogs

org.apache.cordova.file

org.apache.cordova.file-transfer

org.apache.cordova.geolocation

org.apache.cordova.globalization

org.apache.cordova.inappbrowser

org.apache.cordova.media

org.apache.cordova.media-capture

org.apache.cordova.network-information

org.apache.cordova.splashscreen

org.apache.cordova.vibration

The plugins have been updated on our registry at plugins.cordova.io.

E.g. To update your vibration plugin:

cordova plugin rm org.apache.cordova.vibration
cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.vibration
