Second Life Public Nightly 1.21.0.93713 Aug 5th, 2008

This build reports a version of 1.21.0.93713 -- because it is a prototype build of the new codebase that will eventually become our 1.21 series. However you should be aware this is still an alpha build and not the finalized code ready for Release Candidate.

New features:

  • Moderation for Group Text and Group Voice (NOTE: This requires a region running server version 1.24 to work)
    • All previous versions of Second Life have included an "open" form of voice and text conversations. This viewer introduces the feature of "moderated" voice & text conversations.
      • Moderation is only available in Group text and Group voice chat, for any formal Group in Second Life.
      • Moderation does not apply to any type of conversation (either text or voice) in Local Chat proximity or one-to-one conversations
      • Moderation does not apply to any type of ad hoc Group conversation, either text or voice.
      • When a particular conversation is moderated, Residents will see new UI elements in the Communicate window that reflects the "moderated" conversation they are in.
    • There is a new ability 'Moderate Group Chat' available to Roles in Groups
      • Moderator is an ability that is automatically part of the Group Owner and Group Officer roles, but can this be changed or added to other roles
      • The Moderator ability can be seen and managed in the existing Group Information window
      • A moderator does not have the ability to create other moderators during a conversation
      • The moderator ability is a permanent ability (until changed by a Group owner, officer, etc.).
      • Only the moderators will see the new Moderation controls during applicable Group IM/Calls.


  • A new UV-picking feature that allows a prim to report where on its surface/texture it has been clicked. (NOTE: This requires a region running server version 1.24 to work)
    • This project adds 6 new LSL commands:
      • These commands are valid in the events touch_start(), touch(), and touch_end(). in the case of touch(), where events are triggered as long as the mouse is held down - each event has the current surface point data (allowing grabbing, sliders, levers, and all sorts pseudo GUI builds.)


  • UI additions to support compiling of scripts in Mono vs. LSL (NOTE: This requires a region running server version 1.24 to work)

Changes:

  • Added: LSL call for count of agents in region
  • Added: LSL call to get user's client language, with an option to reveal it in Preferences > General > Language:
  • Added: Limit the number of visible avatars to some reasonable maximum
    • This is intended to allow Impostors to deal more effectively with both large crowds and small meetings
    • This uses a new Debug Setting called RenderAvatarMaxVisible, which sets a limit to the number of visible avatars to draw. All other avatars in the camera view above this limit will gently fade out to invisible. Of this Avatar Limit, the nearest 25% will never use Avatar Impostors, since they are the closest people to you. If you have Avatar Impostors turned on, the remaining 75% avatars will be impostored.
    • The initial value of RenderAvatarMaxVisible is 30-40 avatars, based on the level of Graphics > Preferences.
