Crosswalk & network access

I had a problem accessing any external url using Phone Gap build and Crosswalk on Android. The problem turned out to be that Adobe made a new requirement as of cli-5.1.1 to include the whitelist plugin in your config.xml

<!-- New required plugin to allow external network access -->
<gap:plugin name="cordova-plugin-whitelist" source="npm" />
<!-- This line is also required -->
<access origin="*" subdomains="true" />

It would be great if Adobe mentioned this anywhere other by a forum user
