Release Notes for SL Viewer v2.6.0 (225006) - Second Life Release

Released March 29, 2011

Feature Highlights

  • Select a Viewer Mode on Login! - This Beta includes a new Basic mode, in addition to the familiar Advanced mode. Both modes are available to everyone on the login screen (use the 'Mode' pick list to select - changing the default mode requires a Second Life restart).
    • Basic mode presents a simplified Viewer experience, providing new users with an easier introduction to Second Life. It includes simple communication and navigation tools, a choice of 24 pre-configured avatars, and an integrated Destination Guide to help you quickly connect with friends and easily find interesting places to visit. Basic mode does not include voice capability, building tools, or the ability to purchase virtual goods (no access to Linden dollars or your inventory). Users installing Second Life for the first time will default to Basic mode.
    • Advanced mode includes the full Viewer feature set, for those of you already familiar with Second Life. For existing users, Second Life will startup with Advanced mode as the default.
