PS: Taylor.p points out that 6.4 was released last May.
Those playing with RLV will get notices that Open Collar has an update out, v6.4.0. Provided they have not turned off ‘notices’. The update is a bit different than other updates we deal with in Second Life™. The update will upgrade a range of RLV Relay attachments.
Oh, and it is free. There are more details on Open Collars “Update” page.
You do have to go to The Temple of the Collar™ to get the upgrade. It seems the scripts can’t tell if you are using a collar, bracelet, or other attachment for your relay. So, you have to go pick from a board at the temple.
There are always interesting people at the temple. Great place to avatar watch.
The ‘update’ is boxed. So, that has to be unpacked. Then the unpacked updater has to be worn. It is a HUD. Wear the relay you want to update. Click the HUD and it asks if you are ready to update. The update takes a few minutes. The HUD has a floating text progress bar.
I was surprised that it was slow. That may have been because I was updating while at the temple. It may be faster in a less populated region.
Once updated, remove the HUD. Or if you have multiple relay attachments to upgrade, wait and the HUD will reset, at least it appears to. I have yet to try it for serial updates. Then repeat the process. But, they warn, only one relay at a time.
PS: 4/14/2017 – There is some confusion about who owns what and provides which products. Windy Starfall contacted me to correct the misinformation. You’ll find Wendy’s name inside an OpenCollar 6 when looking through the scripts.
OpenCollar was a several member team creating the open source OpenCollar. Virtual Disgrace is the new incarnation of that team. They changed the team name to Virtual Disgrace and began making commercial products AND maintaining OpenCollar as a free open source product. The list of contributors to the OpenCollar project is here.
VirtualDisgrace.com makes the whole source code, creative content, and 3D model available for anyone to download for free.
The latest update according to the OpenCollar web site was 3/4/2017 as a 6.5 version based on Heartcore 6.5.0/26. Heartcore being a commercial version of OpenCollar with greater risk and difficulty escaping. Since there is a cost for Heartcore, it is not as disposable and that blocks one escape route.
Another OpenCollar update is planned for June 2017.
