RELEASE LiveCode 9.6.1 RC-2

Post by LiveCode_Panos » Tue Aug 04, 2020 9:31 am

Dear LiveCoders,

We are pleased to announce the release of LiveCode 9.6.1 RC-2.


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


Release Contents
================
LiveCode 9.6.1 RC-2 comes with 3 regression fixes:

- Inneractive Ads SDK is no longer included in Android commercial builds.
- Android Barcode Scanner preview rect now matches the widget rect
- tsNet iOS binaries are not included in Android builds

For the full list of all fixes, updates and enhancements please see the release notes:
http://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/ ... 1_rc_2.pdf


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.
- The mergSettings external still uses the UIWebView API on iOS, so checking "mergSettings" in the Inclusions pane will cause an AppStore rejection, since Apple no longer accepts new apps that use UIWebView.


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 10.15.2: Xcode 11.5.x - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS 13.5 SDK

There is a full list of working LiveCode/macOS/Xcode combinations here:
https://livecode.com/docs/9-5-0/faq/faq/

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: Since the end of June 2020, Apple is only accepting apps built using iOS13 SDKs. This means that, if you wish to submit apps to the AppStore, you will have to be running at least macOS 10.14 in order to be able to install the necessary version of Xcode.
