Updated: May 04, 2021 - FLTK 1.3.6rc2
Previous: Apr 26, 2020 - FLTK 1.3.6rc1
Even though FLTK 1.3.6 does not fix all known bugs we decided to release
FLTK 1.3.6 as it contains some bug fixes and adaptations
to new compiler releases.
One very important enhancement is support of macOS up to macOS 11 "Big Sur" on both Intel and Apple Silicon (M1) processors.
This release does not contain new "ABI features". The ABI (Application Binary Interface) is 100% compatible with release 1.3.5.
The new release 1.3.6 (source and documentation) can be downloaded here:
CHANGES IN FLTK 1.3.6rc2
FLTK 1.3.6rc2 fixes some minor issues in 1.3.6rc1, particularly macOS

the release tarball because of the macOS "quarantine" feature.

Fix version number in doxygen docs

new Apple Silicon (M1) chips.
