The news in Second Life™ this week is there is no Second Life news today, at least not much.
There are no roll outs this week, main or RC channels.
I covered the viewers this weekend in: Second Life News 2014-11 #3. Today the main viewer is: Second Life 3.7.3 (287491).
I also see the wiki has updated (Mar 17 2014) for version 188.8.131.528045… this is the Google Breakpad version that has been added to the RC Viewers List, giving us 6 RC Viewers.
There are lots of RC versions pending and versions waiting in the wings for RC slots. So, we will see a steady stream of viewer updates coming out. We have gotten an update each Friday for the past two weeks. Seems reasonable to expect the next one this coming Friday.
One per week is more than the Lindens like to roll out. But, if they have a viewer with a better crash rate (lower) than the current viewer then I expect it will come out this Friday or sooner.
See: NSA surveillance program reaches ‘into the past’ to retrieve, replay phone calls. If you believed they were not recording voice, you were wrong.
You probably won’t hear about the ATF ignoring Federal Court orders : Despite Restraining Order, ATF Raids Ares Armor Over Plastic Parts. This should scare the crap out of any American.

I know people whine about frame rates in Second Life. But we are not the only world that has frame rate issues. See: article.
