Server Deployments

There are no scheduled deployments for week #16. The next deployment should be to the RC channels in week #17 (week commencing Monday, April 25th). This is liable to include at least one fix to help prevent simulator crashes.

SL Viewer Updates

Both of the current RC viewers were updated on Friday, April 15th.

The Maintenance RC, which includes fixes for crashes, memory leaks, input/cursor issues, graphics bugs. invisiprims, formatting, notifications and more, was updated to version See my notes on the invisiprim tweak here.

The Quick Graphics RC viewer, containing the new Avatar Complexity capabilities and the graphic presets support updated to version

Depending on the stats gathered on these versions, one of them might be updated to the de facto release viewer later in the week (although I’m guessing there may not be a promotion until week #17).

This leaves the complete list of official viewers as:

  • Current Release version: (dated March 23), April 1 – formerly the HTTP / Vixox RC viewer download page, release notes
  • TC viewers – as indicated above
  • Project viewers:
    • Project Bento (avatar skeleton extensions) updated to version on April 15 – an updated set of bones for the Bento skeleton.
    • Oculus Rift project viewer updated to version on October 13, 2015 – Oculus Rift DK2 support
  • Obsolete platform viewer version dated May 8, 2015 – provided for users on Windows XP and OS X versions below 10.7.

News is once again light at the start of the week. Expect more from the Bento and TPVD meetings at the end of the week 🙂 .
