Dear LiveCode users,

We are pleased to announce the release of LiveCode 9.6.0 DP-1.

Developer Preview Release
=========================
Warning: this is not a stable release. Please ensure that you back up your stacks before testing them.


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


Release Contents
================
LiveCode 9.6.0 DP-1 comes with more than 20 bugfixes.

In addition, LiveCode 9.6.0 DP-1 includes several amazing new features:

- The mobile player control has been updated to use the AVKit framework on iOS. This fixes a lot of existing bugs, including some new issues on iOS 13+ devices.
- The mobile browser control has been updated to use the WebKit framework on iOS. This provides better performance on iOS devices.
- The "open printing to pdf ..." command can now be used to direct printing to a PDF output file on Android devices.
- Support for building with Xcode 11.1 and the iOS 13.1 SDK has been added.
- New tsNet build with support for iOS 13+ is included.
- New CEF build is included, which addresses rendering issues with the browser widget in some 32bit Windows devices.
- New "focusModes" and "focusMode" properties are implemented for the Android camera control.


Known issues
================

- This build (for Mac) is not notarized yet, so if your Mac is running MacOS Catalina (10.15.x) you will get a warning dialog saying that the app cannot be opened. In this case, you have to whitelist LiveCode in the System Settings -> Security and Privacy, and then right-click on LiveCode and choose "Open" from the contextual menu. Just double-clicking to open it will not work. Note that you'll only need to do this once, the very first time you open LiveCode 9.6 DP-1. For more details and instructions see here:

- 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.
