Let us know what you think on email, on the forum, or in-world. If it's not working for you, try to get help there. If it is working for you, try helping someone who isn't having as much luck as you are.

Mailing List

SLDev Mailing List (subscribe) - mailing list for discussing the development of the Second Life viewer. This is a high-traffic mailing list (as many as 30-40 messages/day on a busy day). For a weekly summary of this mailing list, see SLDev Traffic. You may also want to search the SLDev archives.


If you are having issues getting things built, and you just want to ask a quick question, please ask it in one of the "Technical Talk" forums.


If you run into issues, look through the bug database and see if a bug has been filed. If so, vote for the issue to be fixed. If not, file the bug.

Second Life JIRA is the place to submit bug reports, reproductions and patches for issues relating to the open source viewer.
