…dn’t already know. The bug fixes in the maintenance package are extensive. Cocoa bugs/fixes are getting extensive QA work. We know little more than that in regard to Cocoa. The Hover project server side should roll to the main grid next week, Tuesday 2/3. The Project Hover Height Viewer version is expected to promote to RC status in week 6. It is likely to get some updates when promoted. Several people would like to see this new ‘Hov… Continue reading

…hat of course is a collection of problem fixes and minor tweaks. There are Cocoa fixes in the release. So, there is some hope for Apple users. We don’t have a list of those fixes. I suspect we will have to wait for the release notes. There is discussion about doing something with Grid Status. The idea is to make it more visible. Perhaps something like what Firestorm does and put it on the splash screen. But, this is a more complex problem than mos… Continue reading

…ng memory leak fixes we will expect to see in an RC Viewer this month. Mac-Cocoa There is progress. The Lab now has someone working on Mac bugs. Work is being done on the Alt-Cam bug.

…ilding Mac Viewers is being done with the new Clang and XCode 6.1. All the Cocoa fixes to the viewer that can be made have supposedly been made. Remaining issues are on the Apple side… at least that is the Linden story and they’re sticking to it. VS2013 Switching the viewer build process for Windows versions of the viewer to Visual Studio 2013 (VS2013) are going really well, per Oz. They are almost done with all the package compiles for use with V… Continue reading

…RA item where one can comment. See: SUN-38 – As users of kneel/lay/sit animations and tiny/giant avatars, we need a way to change the body size in SSB sims. (Created: Feb/24/2013) This presents the user cases in a solid way that the Lindens can bite into. So, it will get some attention. Cocoa Bug Fixes This is an ongoing annoyance. More fixes are out and in testing. One of those is the Mac’s Alt-Cam bug that sends the camera flying off to wherever… Continue reading

Firestorm Viewer Release 4.6.7-42398 is Here

…g it. It will not be subjected to Firestorm’s 3-version rule UNTIL all the Cocoa bugs are fixed. This is a big concession from the FS Team. It would be easier for them to not have to support more than 3 versions. If you are running 4.5.1 Beta, it is going to be blocked soon. So, upgrade before you find yourself locked out of SL on that viewer. The code base for this release is sort of Linden 3.7.8. From this point forward it seems like it is going… Continue reading

…d to happen in a couple of weeks, so maybe week 39 or 40 work will resume. Cocoa Bugs Oz believes there is nothing left for the Lab to do with these issues. I think this means that most of the remaining problems are not so much SL Viewer problems as they are Mac problems. There are other Mac changes they will eventually get to. The Alt-Cam bug cannot be reproduced by the Lab. So, if you are experiencing the problem file a JIRA and document it in G… Continue reading
