There will be frequent updates which you can grab from the link below.

The last version implements the following new features:

•Provenance now supports the system-wide Dark mode of tvOS. To enable it go to tvOS Settings → General → Appearance → Dark ✓

•Local Multiplayer via External Controllers

•Portrait and Landscape Orientation (now also for iPad devices)

•Automatic ROM Matching (Game Title, Cover Art, Description, Genre, etc…) via OpenVGDB

•ROM Customizations (Cover Art, Game Titles) (Instructions)

•Multiple Options for Managing ROMs, Game Saves and Cover Art (iPhone 6 and later)

•3D Touch Shortcuts for Recent Games (iPhone 6s and later, except iPhone SE and iPhone Xʀ)

This application is from a third-party developer, so an automatic update won’t be available.

You will need to manually update the app by installing the new version from the IPA file; the previous app will be replaced automatically.

All the updates have the latest fixes and optimizations, but their constantly changing nature means that little testing has been done on them and unknown bugs may appear.
