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 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.
