iOS 9 Issues

This is just a list for keeping track of iOS 9 related issues I've run into.

1) If you get a list of font families, some of those families do not contain any actual fonts - only seems to affect newer devices.  (reported to apple - marked as dupe)

2) Weird issues with UIView hit test not propagating.   Oddball things where it works everywhere but on an iPhone 6s.  Generally, once recompiled, it works fine.  Actually, I've found that recompiling or changing the hit test code does not work.  In fact, any old style touchesBegan type tap handling does not work on the iPhone 6s.

3) CSS Sibling selectors do not work in certain conditions, for example:

input:checked + label ~ div {
    z-index: 1;

changing to:

input:checked + label + div {
    z-index: 1;

does work, but doesn't work in iOS 8.   Adding both rules seems to do the trick.

4) Using willRotateToInterfaceOrientation to force a UISplitViewController to refresh the layout no longer works.  Should use  setPreferredDisplayMode instead, as in:

    [sv setPreferredDisplayMode:(hideMaster)?UISplitViewControllerDisplayModePrimaryHidden : UISplitViewControllerDisplayModeAllVisible];

for example.

5) External http calls not working (after iOS 9 recompile).  Need to add

to info plist.
