Release Notes

 

This release contains an update to a large set of libraries to provide security, stability and consistency improvements to this and future viewers.

MAC OS X 10.5

The libraries below have been built with a minimum OS level of 10.6. Viewers based on this release will not run on OS X 10.5 or earlier releases.

SSA/Avatar Baking Service and Various ISPs and Networking Gear

A few users have experienced problems with avatar appearance due to their very specific network configuration. Gray avatars are accompanied by ‘Transferred a partial file’ errors in the SecondLife.log file. Linden has not been able to reproduce this internally but a possible workaround is found in this release. Relevant Jira reports are:

Zlib

Updating from 1.2.3/1.2.4/1.2.5/1.2.6 to 1.2.8.

Library changes can be found here: http://zlib.net/ChangeLog.txt

Contributed minizip library is now built on all platforms. This library is used for file manipulations in colladadom. Originally, that library supplied minizip via binary blob.

Libpng

Updating from 1.5.1 to 1.6.8

Library changes can be found here: http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/libpng.html. Changes aren’t in one place so expect to dig.

Numerous .png files in viewer build show warnings/errors with new library due to non-conforming color profiles, etc. These warnings appear in the viewer’s (or SLplugin’s) standard error stream and are one of the following:

iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile iCCP: profile 'ICC Profile': 1000000h: invalid rendering intent iCCP: cHRM chunk does not match sRGB

These PNG files were cleaned up and made conforming in changeset 654ca4c10c91.

OpenSSL

Updating from 0.9.8q/1.0.0d to 1.0.1h. The new version includes fixes for the Heartbleed exploit.

Library changes can be found here: http://www.openssl.org/news/changelog.html

C-Ares

Updating from 1.7.1 to 1.10.0.

Changes can be found here: http://c-ares.haxx.se/download/

These changes should be mostly irrelevant as the curl package has been switched over to use the threaded resolver. But there is still a DNS lookup utility present in the viewer.

Libxml2

Updating from 2.6.24 to 2.9.1 and expanding platforms from Linux-only to all three.

Changes can be found here: http://xmlsoft.org/news.html

PCRE

Updating from 7.6 to 8.35.

Changes can be found here: http://www.pcre.org/changelog.txt

DirectFB

Updating from 1.4.9 to 1.7.1.

Changes can be found here: http://directfb.org/index.php?path=Main%2FDownloads

SDL

Updating SDL from 1.2.14 to 1.2.15.

Changes can be found here: http://www.libsdl.org/release/changes-1.2.html

curl

Updating from 7.24.0 to 7.37.0.

Changes can be found here: http://curl.haxx.se/changes.html

Boost

Updating from 1.52.0 to 1.55.0.

Changes can be found here: http://www.boost.org/users/history/version_1_55_0.html

google-mock

Updating from 1.1.0 to 1.7.0. (1.6.0 to 1.7.0 on Windows)

Changes can be found here (if you’re lucky and persistent): https://code.google.com/p/googlemock/w/list

collada-dom

Continuing with 2.3 (dom version 1.4). This is not a version change despite earlier viewers having advertised the library as a 2.2 release.

fontconfig

Updating from 2.8.0 to 2.11.0.

Changes can be found here: http://www.freedesktop.org/software/fontconfig/release/

freetype

Staying at 2.4.4 but built differently for the viewer.

History can be found here: http://www.freetype.org/index.html#news

llqtwebkit/Qt4

Functionally equivalent to the previous 4.7.1 version of the Qt4 library. This collection of libraries is being built in a different, more maintainable fashion which is why it is mentioned. This does not address the outstanding issues with Webkit services on various platforms (e.g. Media-on-a-Prim, streaming media viewing).

Detailed Developer Information

There is a separate document on the details of library package changes for developers.
