Release Notes


This is a Maintenace viewer release.


People floater:

Searching for avatars in Friends and Nearby is easier now - you will see Display Name [ username ] by default. Hide via View/Sort options -> Hide usernames.
Eject/Freeze added to Nearby floater context menus for easier griefing response.

Pathfinding notification:

“Rebake region” is right in the Pending changes notification toast now.

Object Bonus:

Added a warning dialogue to inform of potential massive autoreturn or impact to parcel prim budgets.

UI Scale:

UIScaleFactor, known internally as “dial-a-bug” can now be increased to 2.0. Dial at your own risk.


Appearance & JellyDolls:

  • Some cases of invisible avatars due to JellyDolls feature.
  • Appearance update was broken due to COF version getting out of synch. It will now be … *nsync.
  • Invisiprims are now preloaded and will remain transparent, not grey or black.
  • Maximum Complexity setting will be set to recommended setting on first run. A Default preset will be added based on recommended settings, but not applied, so your current graphics settings are unaffected.
  • Added “Show original” menu item to Appearance/Wearing tab.
  • Handled an unhandled error when deleting empty list of graphics presets.


  • Snapshots floater no longer gets stuck Saving to Inventory!

UI fixes:

  • You can minimize and un-minimize floaters all you want.
  • We won’t suddenly expand top folder in Inventory when you change a filter anymore.
  • Inventory floater: if you change settings in Recent tab, they’ll stick between logins now.
  • Japanese fonts fix for OS X El Capitan
  • You can now close the Build floater via Build menu when editing attachments in a no-build area.
  • Copy in Gestures panel will copy the name and not UUID of the gesture.
  • Notecards and Textures can no longer be deleted from the library.
  • Conversations floater won’t be covered by chat toasts. That was a regression from another fix, oops.
  • Various Minor UI cleanup (dead options, zombie labels, mesh upload naming, inventory tree indentation, error message on snapshot save, notification toast layout, worldmap search)


  • No more unlisting Marketplace listings when you edit them while inventory is still fetching.

Scripts & Particles:

  • PSYS_SRC_MAX_AGE parameter no longer breaks scripts


  • We now prompt you to remove registry keys handling SL protocols during uninstall, instead of silently leaving them there.
  • We won’t request region capabilities twice when logging in anymore (thanks Ansariel!)
  • Wireframe mode: no more downloading surface textures.
