Recently we have seen a number of people complaining about getting disconnected, repeatedly. No one has determined if it is an SL problem or just problems local to the users being disconnected.
The main release SL Viewer today is: 3.6.12-284506. I expect that to change this week.
The RC viewers are now:
- Google Breakpad Viewer version 126.96.36.1994710
- Interesting Viewer version 188.8.131.524757
- Package Fix Viewer version 184.108.40.2064995
We have more project viewers this week:
- Project Fitted Mesh Viewer version 220.127.116.114458
- Project HTTP Viewer version 18.104.22.1684698
- Project Merchant Outbox Viewer version 22.214.171.1244731
The Breakpad viewer is about updating the crash reporting process. Users will see little if any difference using this version. It will be important for third party viewers (TPV) and the Lindens for collecting error data.
The Interesting Viewer is about the rez process the viewer uses. It produces much faster renders of an area. Near things rez first and hidden things rez latter. How information is chached by the viewer also changes. Users will see a noticeable change in render speed.
Firestorm is still the most stable viewer available. The main SL Viewer is the second most stable.
The main channel will get an update Tuesday. This update has a single bug fix that has to do with vehicles getting struck when crossing region boundaries. See Details.
The RC channels will all get the same update this Wednesday. It has to do with some crash fixes and the new scripting syntax updates. See Details.
