Release Notes


Maintenance: Martini - Shaken and not stirred

According to Wikipedia, The martini is a cocktail made with gin and vermouth, and garnished with an olive or a lemon twist. Over the years, the martini has become one of the best-known mixed alcoholic beverages. H. L. Mencken called the martini "the only American invention as perfect as the sonnet" and E. B. White called it "the elixir of quietude".

New Features

  • We know that when you block someone, you really don’t want to hear from them. So now, even if they pay you, the accompanying message will not be displayed.
  • Viewer-side changes to support only sending Offline IM to email for accounts with Verified email address.
  • Why sit in front of a blank teleport screen? Read the Message of the Day instead! Because now we’ll actually show it on teleport.
  • Inventory floater -> Recent tab -> Search -> link will now open Search Filters for Inventory.


  • No more unlisting active Marketplace listings before the inventory is fully fetched. What a bad idea that was.
  • Marketplace listings that are cached will actually load from cache instead of constantly fetching.

Inventory / Appearance / Outfits

  • Detaching worn items isn’t gonna make Inventory jump anymore. Sit still, inventory.
  • Save a screenshot -> Save As -> pick the name, not have one assigned to you.
  • Avatar physics will now be more consistent regardless of framerates.
  • Notecards inside notecards with full perms are back to being copyable… it’s turtles all the way down.
  • Assigning snapshot to Outfit had a bug that’s now gone.


  • Quick fix to light projector
  • Fixed Ping interpolate object position. Ready, aim, fire!
  • Unbroke Materials texture selection
  • When editing a prim, the “Use Texture” option will not appear where it’s not wanted.

Logging in and going places

  • Maps link wasn’t setting the start location in the viewer sometimes. Go where you’re told, viewer!
  • When we tell you it’s time to update, the download link will open in an external browser.

Stability & Performance

  • Fixes and crash fixes in texture cache, memory allocation, rendering.
  • Crash fixes in LLScriptFloaterManager, LLGroupMgr, LLProfile, LLEventPump

Assorted UI fixes

  • Chat history will display again for all groups, regardless of their name.
  • High-rez screens will no longer have hard-to-catch cursor targets
  • Sometimes, a floater would drift (float, even) across logins, but will now stay put.
  • Minor UI fixes and regressions (Appearance floater, TOS floater, Delete confirmation toast)
  • Translations update.
