New LiveCode releases

LiveCode 8.1.7 RC-3 contains an important change:

Using Xcode 9 for building iOS standalones in LiveCode 8.1.7 RC-3 now creates a universal binary, i.e. the binary contains both a 32bit slice and a 64bit slice. This means that you can install it in older Apple devices that have a 32bit chip (and thus require the app to have a 32bit slice), such as iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and 4th gen iPad.

This was not possible in LiveCode 8.1.7 RC-2.

Notable changes

Bug of the week

In both of these reports, the reporters attached a simple and helpful sample stack, and provided useful info and a detailed recipe that helped us to test and confirm the problem quickly.

Help needed!
