Kokua-3.7.21 is released

The Kokua Team has released a new version of their viewer. There are 13 notable improvements mentioned on the Kokua blog, but all from features found in the Linden’s SL Viewer. I the more awaited ones are:

  • Group Ban
  • New Login Screen
  • HTTP Pipeline & Enhancements

See: Kokua-3.7.21 is released. This version gets a bit ahead of the main SL Viewer as it includes parts from the RC Viewers. So, this could be this weeks cutting edge viewer.


This Friday will be the Third Party Developers’ User Group meeting. We might hear something about the expected Firestorm release roll out.

I’m suddenly busy with RL meetings and projects. That means less time in SL and less time blogging.
