Release Notes for v5.0.0 (321958) - Second Life Viewer
Please see the Known Issues
for important information and limitations.
Second Life Release Viewer version 18.104.22.1681958
Released on December 01, 2016.
- [ Windows | Macintosh | Linux]
This release viewer build brings you the new extended avatar skeleton ("Project Bento"). This means that you will now be able to use avatars that take advantage of a greatly expanded set of joints, including:
- additional joints along the spine
- many additional bones in the face to support complex facial expressions
- bones in the hands to allow fully poseable fingers
- support for new limbs including a pair of wings and an additional pair of hind limbs
- bones to support tail movement
More information about the specific bones added is available at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/BentoSkeletonGuide
This viewer also adds a new "Reset Skeleton" feature which can be useful to repair avatars that become distorted. This can be found in the right-click menu for any avatar.
Please let us know of any questions or problems as soon as possible, either by filing a bug report or discussing in the forum thread at https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Building-and-Texturing-Forum/Project-Bento-Feedback-Thread/m-p/2987290#M13915
