Releases and LiveCode updater

Post by jim1001 » Sat Sep 09, 2017 4:21 pm

I have LiveCode Community 8.1.6 which I downloaded & installed on 4 Aug (I'm pretty sure it was labelled as "stable").

I just ran the LiveCode updater & it tells me updates are available. Highlighted is 8.1.6-gm-2. The message starts with
LiveCode 8.1.6. is now available
The release notes for the latest stable version (Release Date 31 Aug) listed at
http://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/
& the release notes for the version I already have appear to be the same.

Can anyone explain please?

Thanks.

Hi Jim,

Due to technical Apple Store innovation,
iOS apps build with the former LC 8.1.6 were rejected by Apple
thus this new one.

Apparently, there is no differences except if you need to sell you iOS app.

I'm sure someone will come in if I'm wrong :)

Regards,

Thierry,

Thanks for the information. I've found a link that confirms what you say:
https://www.mail-archive.com/use-liveco ... 89052.html

Did you see it on the use-livecode mailing list or has it been publicised elsewhere too?

Best wishes,
Jim

Trust is good, control is better! :D

This has been announced on the LC mailing list about a week ago.


Best
