Blue Steal and Le Tigre will continue to run the software with the AISv3 (bake fail – inventory) software.

Magnum will run the maintenance version from last week with a new fix added. See: BUG-5763.


The main SL Viewer updated to 3.7.6-289164. The release notes tell us:

  • This viewer pulls in Vivox 4.6.x libraries instead of 4.5 for improved stability and to address Mavericks issues.
  • It also includes the fixes for accurately detecting Merchant status and improves recovery for Merchant Outbox errors.
  • It removes the false Windows crash reporter popup notification.

If you have had voice chat problems, this update should correct the problems. There are about 15 other bug fixes too.
