Release Notes


This is a maintenance release with lots of crashfixes, bugfixes, cleanup and a few awesome new features as well!

New features

In Abuse Reporting:

  • when you’re trying to file an abuse report and you crash - the floater will stay open and all information we were able to save will persist.
  • Added a new toolbar button to “Report Abuse”


  • Appearance floater will now remember your last selected tab across logins. You like your Outfit Gallery? Enjoy! You don’t like it? Enjoy something you prefer …

Pay floater

  • You can now add an optional payment message when you send money (Thanks Ansariel!).


  • Added an option to cycle through texture faces in edit/build + key bindings to do the same.


  • This build reverts the change in llTakeControls(*,FALSE,TRUE), which caused so much confusion. Current state is in line with all TPV behavior as well. SVC-7532 is closed as Expected Behavior. Let's have no more of this silliness.
