The Imprudence project has released version 1.3(beta 1) of their Second Life viewer. Imprudence is one of our favorite after-market Second Life viewers, and the only third-party viewer that we're certain complies with all of the source and asset licensing.
This edition merges all things Imprudence with the codebase for 1.23, providing one of the fastest and smoothest viewers currently available that we're aware of, along with the usual featureful experience.
Textures and object appear faster than ever; clothing layer protection is implemented; payments allow optional message text which appears in the transaction history; Inventory scripts can be saved as Mono (rather than being forced to LSL); Pie menus are available in two flavors (new and legacy); there's additional privacy enhancements; and more. See the full release notes for details.
As always, you should consider the risks before installing any third-party software on your system. Imprudence viewer 1.3(beta1) is available for Linux (including 64 bit), Windows (with a special version optimized for SSE) and for Intel Mac, or go to the project's download page where you can also get the source code under the GPL license. As usual, the Imprudence team has provided a forum for feedback on this release so that you can pass on your experiences and suggestions.
