Network Status plugin

A new plugin is now available! The NetworkStatus plugin allows Cobalt applications to query the device connectivity type (Wi-Fi, cellular, etc.), as well as listening to connectivity changes.

This new feature can make your apps smarter by giving them the ability to make better use of the network, e.g. avoiding high bandwidth consumption over a cellular network or conversely making use of Wifi speed to preload data.

The documentation and sources can be found in the plugin repository and examples are available in the Catalog sample. You can try it from the CLI with cobaltians create myApp Catalog develop .

Also, note that a new minor version of the CLI has been released. If you want to try this sample, you will need to update your CLI and use the development branch of the Catalog. The sample will be merged into master on the next release.
