Many developers, both inside Linden Lab and in Open Source, are constantly implementing new features and fixing problems with the viewer. One of the most important ways that you can help with that process as a user is to install and try these development viewers and provide feedback.

All of the viewers here are under active development - there may be some problems with existing features; if you want a more stable experience, use the released Second Life Viewer.

There are several places to look for viewers that need testing:

Beta Candidates

Details for these builds (build logs, included changesets)



Developer Builds

Everyone may post links here to viewers that should be tested, provided the viewers are Second Life compatible and TPVp compliant when connected to Second Life.


VWR-25062 Add user controlled filter for web media
Contribution by Tonya Souther and Sione Lomu
Windows | Macintosh | Linux

Source: https://bitbucket.org/oz_linden/vwr-25062
Details for these builds (build logs, included changesets)




STORM-64 Local Textures
Add a Local tab to the texture picker that allows a local file on the viewer system to be used as a texture when building, with the option to have it auto-update when modified. The texture is only visible to a viewer on that system (is gray to everyone else)
Windows | Macintosh | Linux

STORM-1112 Implement SOCKS 5 proxy
Allow the Second Life Viewer to connect through a SOCKS 5 proxy.
Windows | Macintosh | Linux

Source: https://bitbucket.org/log_linden/viewer_socks5
Details for these builds (build logs, included changesets)



Development Mailing List

Developers who are looking for testers sometimes make requests for testing on the opensource-dev mailing list.

Development Integration

The viewer-development source code repository is where all new Viewer 2 development is brought together. It's the best available look at what will be in the next viewer release.

This is the absolute newest version available. Note that this one may not have been tested at all yet - you have been warned.


Latest Development Viewers:

Project

Various viewer development projects working on major new features may from time to time release Project Viewers to provide early testing opportunities. You can find any that are currently available on the Alternate Viewers page.
