CHANGES IN FLTK 1.3.6rc2 RELEASED: May 04 2021

FLTK 1.3.6rc2 fixes some minor issues in 1.3.6rc1, particularly macOS
bundle generation. It addresses an issue that bundles can't be executed
on macOS 11.3 Big Sur if built with configure/make after downloading
the release tarball because of the macOS "quarantine" feature.

Details:

Albrecht Schlosser:
Rename file 'VERSION' to 'fltk_version.dat' (#191)
Fix version number in doxygen docs
Fix build with Cairo for CMake < 3.13
CMake: fix old (pre 3.13) link_directories() usage
Enhance CMake build configuration summary
Refactor macOS bundle generation to avoid "quarantine"
Fix a new compiler warning

Never had a chance to test earlier, but for the record just tried this (downloaded via Safari) on my old Mac (10.13.6) and all was well, AFAICT, with both configure and cmake builds.

OK here on macOS 11.2 for FLTK 1.3.6rc2 :
I tried 4 builds with configure and CMake, for Quartz and for X11.

OK also under Windows XP 32-bit (via VirtualBox) for configure-based build.

Great, it's good to see that 1.3.6 can be built even on such old systems
as WinXP.

Thanks for testing again to you and all other testers.

Since we didn't get any bug reports since 1.3.6rc2 I scheduled the

final release on Sat, May 15, 2021

unless there are further bug reports which would trigger a new RC.

RC2 also OK with macOS 11.3.1 on Intel hardware.
