Updates for the week ending Sunday, September 24th

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 Current Viewer Releases 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. This page 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
  • By its nature, this summary presented here will always be in arrears, please refer to the Current Viewer Release Page for more up-to-date information.

Official LL Viewers

  • Current Release version 5.0.7.328060, dated August 9th, promoted August 23rd – No change
  • Release channel cohorts (notes on manually installing RC viewer versions):
    • Wolfpack RC viewer updated to version 5.0.8.329128, on September 22nd – this viewer is functionally identical to the release viewer, but including additional back-end logging “to help catch some squirrelly issues.”1
    • Maintenance RC viewer updated to version 5.0.8.329115, on September 22nd.1
  • Project viewers:

  1. These two viewers were updated on September 22nd and withdrawn shortly thereafter pending action from Microsoft re a Windows SmatScreen issue affecting the most recent viewer updates (see here and here for more). This issue has now been resolved and the two RCs are once again available.
