Video plugin: support for save/load with savegames, which restores the video source and playback position


Minimum viewport size and layout size reduced from 10x10 to 2x2


AdMob plugin: brought up to date with the latest version of the underlying Cordova plugin, which includes deprecating the "Reload interstitial" action (since the Cordova plugin also deprecated this)

Bug Fix

loopindex expression: when nested loops with the same name were used (even through function calls), loopindex now returns the most-nested loop's index rather than the least nested.
