  1. I haven’t heard anything about Singu in a long while. Latest version I could install from the AUR was: 1.8.9 (8382) BETA. Did my bestest informed chief and über blogger Inara hear anything about what’s going on in the Singu camp?

    1. There are “nightly” builds available still (I believe) – but as they are not “releases” I tend not to report on them (nor do I generally cover “alpha” and “beta” releases for TPVs *unless* the release is significant & very public – as per the Firestorm EEP beta). As I’ve not seen anyone from the Singu team at the TPV Developer meetings for a number of months, I’m not sure what the state of play is.

    1. If you mean running the viewer purely via memory stick for Windows, it is something I have not tried. If you have a thumb drive with sufficient space, the easiest way is to try for yourself.

      If you are referring to running SL via other devices – Android, iOS – there are “official” apps in development by LL, but not currently available for general consumption. However, there are various 3rd party apps that can be used – see my current viewer releases page or the Third Party Viewer Directory for details.
