I see there is a new video out on AvaStar and the Second Life Avatar. It is a mix of promotional information and ‘How To’.[youtube kSXChLL7kJM]
The current release candidate of the AvaStar plug in for Blender is still avastar-1-1-1057_blender-2-65.
When talking about what AvaStar plug in does the wording is much better. There are numerous things we can do in Blender to replicate what we see in Second Life. But, several of those things cannot be transferred into Second Life.
AvaStar, since the 1057 candidate, does a pretty good job of showing how what we model in Blender will behave once inside Second Life. It is certainly better than the 1054 version I was previously using.
