RELEASE LiveCode 9.6.1

Post by LiveCode_Panos » Wed Aug 19, 2020 4:31 pm

Dear LiveCoders,

We are pleased to announce the release of LiveCode 9.6.1 STABLE.


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 STABLE comes with more than 50 changes since the last stable release (9.6.0), including:

New Features
- Support for building against API 29 on Android - which is now (since the 3rd of August 2020) a requirement for new apps submitted to the Play Store
- Support for building with Xcode 11.5, using the iOS 13.5 SDK
- New tsNet and mergExt builds, built with the iOS 13.5 SDK
- Improved security, by using a New OpenSSL version (1.1.0g)

Bug Fixes:
- Several improvements and bug fixes in HTML5
- Faster auto-updater
- Improvements in the barcode scanner widget
- Several crashes have now been addressed


For the full list of all fixes, updates and enhancements please see the release notes:
http://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/ ... -9_6_1.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.


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 has only been 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.


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

We have a forum available for discussing LiveCode Builder at viewforum.php?f=93


Have fun!

This seems a bit odd:

Ubuntu 20.04 and Ubuntu 16.04 are not the same thing.

I think I caught the start of it and then got distracted.

Hi all.

Just tried to upgrade (from Community 9.5.0) but download does not work (after a l_o_n_g time seemingly downloading, according to progress bar.

OS X 10.13.6.

Got the msg in the snapshot.

Anyone have this problem or is it just me. (Again!)

Thanks!

The automatic download also seems to fail for me as well. I always go directly to the source and do it manually.

https://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/

Since I have several machines, the manual process means that I only have to download once and then can share the file around.

Hope this helps

Kelly
