The Second Life Quick Graphics (QG) Viewer was just promoted to an RC status and updated to version 188.8.131.525528. My install caught it and updated.
The update process for Project Viewers works much better than previously. I haven’t been using project viewers all that much. So, I’m not sure when it changed. But, this project viewer has been updating whenever I log on and an update is available. Nice.
I was just using the previous version of QG to explore Angel Manor. I had found it slow loading textures. It still is. Places I visited earlier today are slow. It is like stuff is not cached. It is the same when I return home after being away for 20 or 30 minutes.
After the initial load in the Manor it was better. But, I still am not impressed with speed. I thought as a Project viewer it probably had more debugging code than the RC’s do. But, the change to RC doesn’t seem to have made much difference.
