Viewers

The big news is Firestorm has a new release out.

The main SL viewer is 3.7.22-297128. This is the viewer that is supposed to fix the crash on launch problem many have run into.

RC & Project Viewers

Maintenance Viewer version 3.7.23.297296 –  Release Notes – This is a maintenance package with a couple of dozen fixes.

Pipeline Viewer version 3.7.23.297272 – This is the viewer that takes advantage.

Project Experience Tools Viewer version 3.7.16.293901 – This version is still lagging behind.

Project Managed Marketplace Viewer version 3.7.21.296858 – This is the Viewer Managed Market Place viewer. I think it only works on the Preview Grid for now. See the VMM FAQ for more information.

Project Oculus Rift Viewer version 3.7.18.295296 – Still waiting for Oculus Rift people to release a retail version. I don’t find any new information from Oculus Rift on a release date. However, Samsung is releasing their version of a HMD VR unit. It is a cooperative effort between Samsung and Oculus.

Busy

I’m still busy with RL work and holiday stuff. So, not much time for SL and blogging.
