iOS 12 compatibility

Yes, enabling acceleratedRendering in the preOpenStack does allow the  
app to launch in iOS 12! I was not able to actually install the app  
directly to the device from LiveCode (got a generic "Error" message)  
so I had to uninstall 12, install the app under 11, then upgrade back  
to 12 (public beta 3) to test.

I now remember why I disabled acceleratedRendering in the first place:
  1- it adds a quick black screen during the launch of the app  
(between the openStack and openCard it seems)
  2- it breaks the navigation system that I implemented to get from  
card to card (animation of a group that appears from off card)

I can live with #1 for now and will start plotting a work around for  
#2 just so I can get an update out the door. Thanks for looking into  
this!
