New Second Life release candidate viewer: 1.20(RC9)

Linden Lab has released the tenth 1.20 Second Life release candidate viewer. Release candidates start counting from zero, so the first one in the series is RC0.

Release notes are not included in the installer. More fixups with the thread-watchdog, fixes to flexi-prims to make them work more like existing viewers, a bunch of crash-fixes. However this version will not work on Mac PPC at all. Maybe the next RC will do so. That puts us at least one more RC out from a full-release.

Fixes in RC8:

  • Fixed: VWR-1352: A strange copy operation of LLStyle
  • Partial Fix: VWR-1715: Macintosh cyclic short-term freezing of display, getting worse over time; does not respond to commands, eventually change of POV causes crash

  • Fixed: VWR-7322: Chatter's name is not beside chatter's text in Communicate Local Chat (when 'Show Timestamps in chat' is unchecked)
  • Fixed: VWR-7335: Revert to non-HTML search for Search>Places in 1.20
  • Fixed: VWR-7342: Linux 1.20(7) libexpat.so.1 not found, exit on load

  • Fixed: Region/Estate> Estate tab has a misaligned outline on Estate Managers box

  • Fixed: Increase thread monitoring mainloop timeout from 10 sec to 20 seconds
  • Fixed: Additional thread monitoring tweaks, added a timer to confirm if the watching thread has been hung
  • Fixed: Minor bugfixes to thread monitoring during crashes, purgeAllTextures, and the user setting whether to submit crash reports
  • Fixed: option to Send Crash Report is not persisting

Localization Fixes:

  • Fixed: Added new translation strings for German, Korean, Japanese

Release candidate viewers access your live account on the main Second Life grid (Agni). Potentially they may cause hair-loss in pets, and should be always be kept out of reach of children. The downloads are served by Amazon's S3 service and we use and recommend the use of a download manager to keep your download times to a minimum.

You can download this viewer from the usual place for Windows, Mac and Linux.
