+## Deprecation of the Cordova Contacts Plugin
+We are hereby announcing the deprecation of cordova-plugin-contacts. 
+This means that the Cordova development community will not be doing any more work on this
plugin. You can continue to use this plugin as-is in existing and new applications but any
further issues will not be fixed by the Cordova team.
+Generally when we deprecate plugins, we have an alternative standards API to migrate to,
however, the latest [W3C Contacts API]( indicates that
the work on implementing a standard has been discontinued because of various privacy and security
issues. Some of the main issues are potential compromise of users' contacts, safe and timely
disposal of contact information by the recipient and inadvertent granting of permission by
the user.
+Your feedback is graciously accepted and appreciated!
