Howdy iOS users,

I am pleased (and chagrined) to announce that, finally, there is a test build for PdParty 1.3.0.

If you have tested a previous version via TestFlight, you should be receiving an email or notification shortly. For those that wish to join in testing, install the free TestFlight app on your iDevice, then open this TestFlight link:

https://testflight.apple.com/join/17ZZ5AC7 <https://testflight.apple.com/join/17ZZ5AC7>

This work has been supported, in part, by ZKM and a pair of workshops given at the LEONARDO – Zentrum für Kreativität und Innovation Nürnberg <https://leonardo-zentrum.de/>.


Important changes from PdParty 1.2.1 are:

* updated to libpd 0.13.0 pre-release (pd 0.52-2)

* major audio updates via the Obj-C audio overhaul in libpd 0.12+:
  - fixed sample rate handling on newer devices, now independent of hardware
  - Bluetooth and AirPlay output should now work as expected
  - multi-channel I/O should also work (not fully tested beyond 2 in / 2 out)

* fixed parsing of Pd 0.52+ escaped strings by replacing custom atom line parser with binbuf
* fixed iem gui colors by adding support for Pd 0.52+ hex color values
* fixed note ghosting from some devices by forcing midi note off vel to 0 for pd
* fixed failure to reload Browser after rename action

* added support for receiving patches and zip files via AirDrop
* added support for managing PdParty Documents folder in the Files app (fomalsd)
* added [keyup] support via KeyGrabberView UIPresses event backend on iOS 13.4+
* added #shake event
* added Browser copy action to Move... menu
* added location update background mode to help keep GPS events (more) alive

* prefer opening a min of 2 audio inputs and 2 audio outputs 
* set default mic volume to 0.25
* increased controls height for better toolbar spacing on newer iOS versions
* ignore dark mode for now, proper support requires updates to the GUI rendering
* Browser Delete action now red
* various deprecation and bug fixes
