      Description

      Creating this as a new JIRA feature since this is different from previously proposed adding support for Windows 8.1 only.

      This feature proposes transforming 'windows8' to 'windows' platform which is based on Windows Universal apps and which allows building apps for Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. Window Phone 8 (wp8) stays as a platform.

      Original info from dev mail thread:

      With Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 platforms released, it would be great to get Cordova support building apps for those platforms too. A lot of people on this list have also been talking about how to adapt existing apps to the new 8.1 platforms. Here is an initial proposal and prototype of how it may look.

      TL;DR; - Rename windows8 platform to be called windows. This platform can build apps for Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. Window Phone 8 (wp8) stays as a platform.
