Dear list members,

We are pleased to announce the release of LiveCode 8.1.2 RC 1.

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

Release Contents
Fewer crashes
LiveCode was sometimes accessing objects after they had been deleted, 
getting seriously upset as a result.  We rewrote a large chunk of the 
LiveCode engine to stop it from doing that.  We've created mechanisms 
that will help us detect and fix issues like this more easily.

IDE improvements
We resolved several minor but irritating bugs in the IDE and standalone 
builder.  The tools palette and selection handles work more nicely, the 
debugger can watch global variables, we tweaked the property inspector 
user interface (including restoring "Resize" and "Fit Content" options 
to the "Size" pane) and fixed the way the standalone builder places 
resource files.

Xcode 8.1 and iOS 10.1 support
We added support for deploying iOS 10.1 standalones using Xcode 8.1. 
When you redeploy your app with LiveCode 8.1.2, you'll also get fixes to 
the native scroller mobile control, in-app purchasing, and the mobile 
browser widget.

sqlite FTS 5
revdb's sqlite driver now supports the FTS5 full-text search engine.
