Viewer release summary 2012: week 52

This summary is published every Monday and is a list of SL viewer / client releases (official and TPV) made during the previous week. When reading it, please note:

  • It is based on my Viewer Round-up Page, a list of  all Second Life viewers and clients that are in popular use (and of which I am aware) and which are recognised as adhering to the TPV Policy
  • By its nature, this summary will always be in arrears
  • The Viewer Round-up Page is updated as soon as I’m aware of any releases / changes to viewers & clients, and should be referred to for more up-to-date information as the week progresses
  • The Viewer Round-up Page also includes comprehensive links to download pages, blog notes, release notes, etc., as well as links to any / all reviews of specific viewers / clients made within this blog.

  1. Thank you for your cool blog over all this year and this overview on viewers!
    maybe one note to the newest viewer generation. After the long reason full hold in the dev-queue we got one of the best x-mas presents imho this year.
    LL spoiled out now DaveP’s wonderful fix for ( ). Yes it limit us atm to 4k(width or high), but it is the right answer for a collection of some really annoying bugs.
    i tested the 3 LL- and Niran’s-Viewer as fixed!

    HappY sanpping 2013!!!
    Dil 🙂
