Release Notes for Second Life Release 1.22(11) - Mar 11th, 2009

Bug Fixes from the Public Nightly Viewers:

Known Issues:

   

We are aware that the 1.22 Viewer introduced the following noteworthy bugs which are not solved for all Residents:


  • Occasional reports of problems with SL Voice on Mac and Windows.
  • We're still tracking these issues, but continue to have difficulty consistently reproducing them. If you happen to experience any of the following problems, we would appreciate your help in documenting the circumstances in which they occur:
    1. VWR-12010: Spatial Voice Chat remains in the previous region after a Teleport
      • If you experience this problem, please add a comment to VWR-12010 describing your in-world location and details about how long you were in-world.
    2. VWR-12023: After a viewer crash, Voice options and Talk button stay disabled on next relog
      • We only have anecdotal reports of this occurring from our early Resident testers. Please add your comments if it happens to you.
    3. VWR-12024: On some SL accounts, your first login takes 2-3 minutes to connect to Voice
      • We only have anecdotal reports of this occurring from our early Resident testers. Please leave your comments if it happens to you.
    4. VWR-12025: If you reset Voice during a 1-on-1 Voice call, the viewer may show you "stuck" in the call even if you return to spatial Local chat
      • We have improved this behavior, but still observe some reports on Mac and Linux. Please leave your comments in the JIRA if it happens to you.


  • Possible continued problems with Audio and Voice on Linux (introduced in RC8):
    1. VWR-11759: Linux stops playing audio streams
      • Streaming audio from parcels may not work without additional preliminary setup of a compatible 32-bit GStreamer on your Linux computer.
      • Please read the file README-linux.txt. Goto Section 3, INSTALLING & RUNNING, and see Section 5, TROUBLESHOOTING for Problem #6.
    2. VWR-11964: Linux music stream has intermittent noises
      • Please see that issue for possible workaround in the secondlife script.
    3. VWR-12136: Voice quality on Linux can be poor (a pulse of crackly noise) with Intel Audio chips, such as Intel ICH7 and ICH8.
      • We are investigating bugs in the voice SDK which degrade the quality of voice on some systems
    4. Linux may have no audio (ambient, UI, gesture sounds, etc) when using a USB headset
      • This problem does not affect Voice over a USB headset.
      • Workaround: An analog headset does not exhibit this problem.


  • A limitation to the 'Hide Selected' feature:
    1. VWR-11860: using Hide Selected: if not in Edit mode, a right-click will not allow you to click the prim behind
      • Workaround: Simply Right-click > 'Edit...' to switch to Edit mode and this feature works correctly.


  • Crash when using some Advanced Menu > 'Character' options with Hardware Skinning enabled:
    1. VWR-12273: Crash on Advanced > Character > Display Agent Target AND Advanced > Character > Show Collision Skeleton
      • When hardware skinning is enabled, selecting the Advanced Menu 'Character' options 'Display Agent Target' or 'Show Collision Skeleton' will cause the viewer to crash.
      • Workaround: Disabling the 'Hardware Skinning' in your viewer's Preferences > Graphics tab will allow safe use of both options.


  • Calibration of Voice volume:
    1. Due to the difference in voice platforms used in earlier viewers to that of this version, the volume of other residents' Voices being transmitted with an earlier viewer may, in some cases, need to be adjusted the first time you hear them. However, Voice levels are more properly calibrated among any and all Residents who use the new voice SDK in this version 1.22.
    2. The actual voice volume may not match UI volume slider when a Resident quits and re-joins a private/Group call
    3. Voice volume may jump higher when joining a Group call or Conference call


  • Bug in Advanced Water presets:
    1. VWR-12164: New presets for Advanced Water aren't being read from user's directory
      • There is a bug due to changes from VWR-4981; custom Water presets are saved to a new folder location but are not properly readable by the viewer from that location.
      • Workaround: The water preset you create is saved in the folder Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\SecondLife\user_settings\windlight, however cannot be read from there. The only way around this problem is to move the preset (.xml) file into the viewer's WindLight settings folder (C:\Program Files\SecondLife\app_settings\windlight\water) for it to be readable until this is fixed.

Release Notes for Second Life Release 1.22(10) - Feb 26th, 2009

Known Issues
   

The RC10 viewer has some important Known Issues.
The full list of issues remaining in 1.22 can be reviewed here in the Public Issue Tracker.


Bug Fixes from the Public Nightly Viewers:

  • Fixed: VWR-12082: The action "Save Texture As..." of a texture which is embedded into a notecard will crash the viewer
  • Fixed: VWR-12005: SLVoice.exe crashed when using RC9 or 1.22.9
  • Fixed: VWR-12077: Preferences: Voice Chat Enablement Crash Bug
  • Partial Fix: VWR-12025: If you reset Voice during a 1-on-1 Voice call, the viewer may show you "stuck" in the call even if you return to spatial Local chat
    • Note: This fix changes viewer behavior slightly when you consciously disable and re-enable voice : Viewer 1.22 and later will no longer attempt to put your avatar back into any voice call which you were in. Instead, after consciously disabling and re-enabling Voice, you will now always end up in local, spatial voice chat. (As long as you are on a land parcel which allows voice.)
      • You will need to manually re-connect to any private or ad-hoc voice call that you were in.
      • This allows you to re-set your Voice settings more predictably, like a re-login to Second Life: The way to get out of a voice-confusion state is to disable & re-enable Voice Chat (in Preferences), and this puts you back in a 'known' state in the local, spatial channel.


Localization Fixes:

  • Fixed: Additional truncated Japanese text


Other Changes:

  • Updated: Vivox SDK version 2.1.3010.6151 to address crash VWR-12005, above

Release Notes for Second Life 1.22(0) November 20th, 2008

Known Issues
   

This iteration RC0 has some important Known Issues that we are working on right now.
Please see the section Known Issues for RC0 below.


New features:

  • Added: VWR-3434: New feature for text chat: "Whisper" as well as Say and Shout.


Changes:

  • Changed: VWR-8689: Change the location of "Mute" in the pie menu to avoid mis-clicks
  • Changed: Replaced the View > Beacons sub-menu with its own window for more accurate control
  • Changed: Replaced pick rendering with a raycast method, to increase performance

Picking refers to identifying the object that is under your cursor. For example, when you alt-zoom, left-click, right-click, etc, a "pick" is performed to calculate what object you clicked on. For alt-zooming, it also determines where in 3D space you clicked. In version 1.22, the method for picking was refactored to use a raycasting method, which has enormous performance advantages.

However, the picking of avatars who are wearing non-prim clothes or no clothes is no longer pixel perfect (this is a known limitation). In some circumstances, this will cause unacceptable usability issues while we tune the behavior during the 1.22 Release Candidate cycle. Please read Known Issue VWR-10342 for more information and feedback.

  • Added: new info display, Advanced > Rendering > Info Displays > Raycasting
  • Removed: Remove Advanced > Compress Snapshots to Disk (no longer support .j2c now that .jpg is available for Snapshots)
  • Added: Implement dynamic time-outs in the viewer to support fetches of large inventories over HTTP/TCP
    • NOTE: This is not yet enabled on the Server.

Temporary Changes:

We have enabled some special debugging checks during the Release Candidate cycle. These have a short-term effect of causing the viewer to crash more when something goes wrong, but it assists Linden Lab to improve stability by identifying those failure cases. We appreciate that you send us crash reports that occur! These extra checks WILL be removed in a later iteration of the Release Candidate. But these can be turned off by a Resident:

  • Turned on Thread monitoring (Watchdog) during the Release Candidate cycle
    • Thread monitor will detect when the application is frozen for a period greater than 20 seconds and possibly force a crash with detailed logs
    • Thread monitor can be disabled with a command line setting "--set WatchdogEnabled 0"
    • The threshold timing of the thread monitor is set in the file \SecondLifeReleaseCandidate\app_settings\settings.xml under the key "MainloopTimeoutDefault"

Bug Fixes:

  • Partial Fix: VWR-8932: 1.21 RC - Script editor performance degrades with large scripts
  • Fixed: VWR-9467: 1.21 RC will not install due to error opening file for writing (xulutil.dll etc)

    • Note: Until the code is better internationalized, these 4 translations have been reverted to English
  • Fixed: VWR-8944: Viewer crashes on logout (crash on QuickTime.qts )
