Second Life Project Bento Viewer version 5.0.0.317597 – No change since last week. I doubt we will see any change until Vir Linden returns from vacation.

Second Life Project VLC Media Plugin Viewer version 4.0.6.316258 – No change.

Second Life Project VOB Viewer version 4.0.6.316422 – No change.

Rumor is there will be a Firestorm Viewer update yet this month.

Bento Update 2016 w28

There is a second video of the post-meeting. Also for the next couple of weeks Vir Linden is on vacation. There will still be UG meetings. These will be mostly for user-developers to discuss problems. Coyot Linden (not a furry) will be there to pass along issues and question to Vir.

I’m uploading the post-meeting now.
