Post by LiveCode_Panos » Mon May 10, 2021 2:01 pm

Dear LiveCoders,

We are pleased to announce the release of LiveCode 9.6.2 RC-6.

Getting the Release
You can get the release at https://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/ or via the automatic updater.

Release Contents
LiveCode 9.6.2 RC-6 comes with 3 regression fixes:

- Fix 100% CPU usage when the player control is set to load an unplayable media file on Macos Big Sur
- Fix rectangle border inset too much when printing on Windows or to PDF
- Ensure externals are not blocked by hardened runtime

For the full list of all fixes, updates and enhancements please see the release notes:

Known issues
- The Browser widget's native layer is not shown in some Linux distros with Cinnamon window manager.
- The use of the Browser widget is not supported on Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit LTS yet.

Required Software
To build iOS apps with LiveCode you must have the appropriate versions of Xcode as follows:

- macOS 10.13.4: Xcode 10.1 - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS 12.1 SDK
- macOS 10.14.4: Xcode 11.3.x - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS 13.2 SDK
- macOS 10.15.4+: Xcode 12.1.x - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS 14.1 SDK

There is a full list of working LiveCode/macOS/Xcode combinations here:

Note: Whilst we endeavour to release updated versions of LiveCode supporting the latest Xcode/iOS SDKs as quickly as possible; we strongly recommend disabling automatic update of Xcode or downloading the specific version of Xcode required directly from the Apple developer portal and installing it separately.

Important: Starting April 26, 2021, all iPhone and iPad apps submitted to the App Store must be built with Xcode 12 and the iOS 14 SDK or later. This means that, if you wish to submit apps to the AppStore you will have to be running at least macOS 10.15.4 in order to be able to install the necessary version of Xcode.

Please report any bugs encountered on our quality center at http://quality.livecode.com/

We have a forum available for discussing LiveCode Builder at http://forums.livecode.com/viewforum.php?f=93

Have fun!
The LiveCode Team

Thanks team
Just a quick note to say that the slow rendering of graphics present since RC3 are still present and possibly worse...
