Acorn 5.6 is moving closer to shipping, and it now includes support for the Touch Bar in the new MacBook Pros. So if you have one of these neat new machines, you can grab a test build of Acorn 5.6 and try it out.

Acorn will update Touch Bar with recent images to open, a histogram, color changing widgets, transformation options, boolean operations for shapes, and more. And of course this will be a free update for anyone who has already purchased Acorn 5.

I think most developers are still trying to figure out what to do with the Touch Bar, so I imagine things are going to change wildly and drastically as time goes on (Acorn included). But, you've got to start somewhere and here is our take on it.
