The following plugins were updated today:

Many of these are minor, or only relevant to a couple of platforms. However, some notable changes include: * statusbar is now a core Cordova plugin, and now includes support for Windows Phone * splashscreen now includes support for Tizen * file now produces webview-compatible URLs (file:///) URLs by default when calling .toURL * file includes much of the functionality of the file-system-roots plugin, and allows access to all files on the device (except those blocked by the OS) * iOS In-App-Browser now supports clearcache and clearsessioncache like Android * Fixed several issues in media-capture which prevented it from being used with the file plugin * iOS warnings have been fixed when compiling for 64-bit ARM * Windows8 uses the built-in cordova exec proxy for all plugins, rather than a custom proxy.
