Second Life News 2016 w32


The main channel got a new package this Tuesday. This is the package that has minor internal changes. These are usually security and logging things. This particular version of the package was delayed a week to fix for BUG-37573 “Rez silently fails on RC Magnum, RC LeTigre and RC BlueSteel regions.”

The RC channels remain running the same package. No new package.

RC Second Life Maintenance Viewer version – This version has updated from last week’s version It is the version with a number of new features.

People floater:

  • Searching for avatars in Friends and Nearby is easier now – you will see Display Name [ username ] by default. Hide via View/Sort options -> Hide usernames.
  • Eject/Freeze added to Nearby floater context menus for easier griefing response.

Object Bonus:

  • Added a warning dialogue to inform of potential massive autoreturn or impact to parcel prim budgets.

UI Scale:

  • UIScaleFactor, known internally as “dial-a-bug” can now be increased to 2.0. Dial at your own risk.


Appearance & JellyDolls:

  • Some cases of invisible avatars due to JellyDolls feature.
  • Appearance update was broken due to COF version getting out of synch. It will now be … *nsync.
  • Invisiprims are now preloaded and will remain transparent, not grey or black.
  • Maximum Complexity setting will be set to recommended setting on first run. A Default preset will be added based on recommended settings, but not applied, so your current graphics settings are unaffected.
  • Added “Show original” menu item to Appearance/Wearing tab.
  • Handled an unhandled error when deleting empty list of graphics presets.


  • Snapshots floater no longer gets stuck Saving to Inventory!

UI fixes:

  • You can minimize and un-minimize floaters all you want.
  • We won’t suddenly expand top folder in Inventory when you change a filter anymore.
  • Inventory floater: if you change settings in Recent tab, they’ll stick between logins now.
  • Japanese fonts fix for OS X El Capitan
  • You can now close the Build floater via Build menu when editing attachments in a no-build area.
  • Copy in Gestures panel will copy the name and not UUID of the gesture.
  • Notecards and Textures can no longer be deleted from the library.
  • Conversations floater won’t be covered by chat toasts. That was a regression from another fix, oops.
  • Various Minor UI cleanup (dead options, zombie labels, mesh upload naming, inventory tree indentation, error message on snapshot save, notification toast layout, worldmap search)
  • PERMISSION_DEBIT notification will always default to Deny now, even when it goes into your Notifications tray.


  • No more unlisting Marketplace listings when you edit them while inventory is still fetching.

Scripts & Particles:

  • PSYS_SRC_MAX_AGE parameter no longer breaks scripts


  • We now prompt you to remove registry keys handling SL protocols during uninstall, instead of silently leaving them there.
  • We won’t request region capabilities twice when logging in anymore (thanks Ansariel!)
  • Wireframe mode: no more downloading surface textures.
