We stand for pee – Nal: It’s a new world…

There is no new package rolling to the RC channels this week. So, all servers on the main grid are running the same package. 


Second Life Maintenance Viewer version – No update since last week.

Second Life Project Bento Viewer version – This is a new version. The Lindens describe it as:

This build contains the results from the final round of skeleton and slider changes. This means that previously generated content may change appearance in various ways. These changes alter the head structure, including a new jaw shaper bone, several changes to the skeleton structure of the head, addition of scaling support for mesh eyes rigged to either eyes or alt eyes. The tail and wings have some offset-based scaling associated with height. Many other sliders have been fixed and/or simplified.

After this release, changes to skeleton or sliders will only be made to fix major bugs, and only the smallest possible changes. Thanks for your patience as we’ve gone through the revision process.

There is also a fix for some inconsistencies in avatar height as viewed by self vs others.

Please let us know of any questions or problems as soon as possible, either by filing a bug report or discussing in the forum thread at

If you have been building Bento content, they may have broken it. It is one of the problems we face when trying to get a head start. But, these changes come from user-requests rather than the Lindens. Some effort was put into convincing the Lindens to make these changes.

Second Life Project VLC Media Plugin Viewer version – No change.

Second Life Project VOB Viewer version – No change.
