Maintenance release: Godot 2.1.5

Godot 2.1.5 is released with hundreds of bug fixes and enhancements made by the community over the last 11 months! It features various distribution changes for Android and iOS, as well as new platform features like hardware cursor acceleration and multitouch events. The binaries now come with the same crash handler as Godot 3.0, and dozens of improvements have been made to the "Godot 2 to 3 converter" which you can use to port your Godot 2 projects to the new format. Last but not least, this release fixes security vulnerabilities in Godot's marshalling code (also going to be fixed in Godot 3.0.6 in coming hours) which can affect Godot servers.
