Version 1.1.3 Released

Good afternoon all!

As mentioned in the previous update (Version 1.1.2 Released) some users were reporting issues sideloading the zip files provided by itch.  After a bunch of investigation I was able to determine the three part root cause of this issue:

1. I used subdirectories two levels deep: e.g. `/images/balls`
2. Itch processes the zip file I upload and creates a new zip file of the contained resources.
3. The zip decompression library on the Playdate does not handle nested child directories unless the parent directory was created first.

I have notified Itch and Panic of these issues and hope they will someday fix this. But in the meantime I moved images out of subdirectories (e.g. /images/balls/ball6.png) into the main images folder (/images/ball6.png).  The itch zip is no longer displaying the out-of-order directory behavior triggering the on-device install failure. More info over at the playdate devforum thread.

As always, you can see the changes in this release on Github.
