Release Notes for SL Viewer v2.6.3 (227447) - Second Life Release

Released April 26, 2011

Feature Highlights

  • Enhanced Body Physics! - Enhanced Body Physics allows you to configure realistic motion for your avatar across a number of points, making for a much more lifelike experience in Second Life. Because the physics are controlled by a wearable object, you can personalize your settings, just the way you want them. Whether you want lots of movement, or only a hint of it, the settings you choose apply only to your avatar. To learn more about using Enhanced Body Physics, you can read the Knowledge Base article here.

  • Support for Autobuild & Visual Studio 2010 - SL Viewer builds now support VS2010. If you're an open source developer and would like more information about what this means to you, check out the Viewer Autobuild wiki page.
