The Global Key Up Event.

This event is dispatched by the Keyboard Plugin when any key on the keyboard is released.

Listen to this event from within a Scene using: this.input.keyboard.on('keyup', listener).

You can also listen for a specific key being released. See Keyboard.Events.KEY_UP for details.

Finally, you can create Key objects, which you can also listen for events from. See Keyboard.Events.UP for details.
