Release Notes


Maintenance: Nalewka is bringing you the next sweet batch of fixes. It's what you've come to expect - we fixed some crashes and memory leaks, threw in bugfixes and improvements for a smooth and pleasant experience. This build also includes fixes for crashes in SL Launcher.

According to Wikipedia, Nalewka ([na'lɛfka]) is a traditional Polish category of alcoholic beverage. Similar to medicinal tinctures, it is usually 40 to 45% strong (though some can be as strong as 75%), and is made by maceration of various ingredients in alcohol, usually vodka or neutral spirits. Among the ingredients often used are fruits, herbs, spice, sugar or molasses. The name nalewka is currently being registered for national appellation within the European Union. Unlike ordinary liqueurs, nalewkas are usually aged. Taste-wise, it is similar to apple and fruit-flavored brandies such as calvados or eau-de-vie (or Canadian maple syrup-infused whiskey), but is much sweeter, almost liqueur-like.

This version is now based on our new 64-bit Second Life Viewer. More details about what differences it has can be found here.

Crashes not crashing

  • Memory leaks not leaking


  • Received items are now searchable via inventory search. And visible in Worn tab. And overall treated more fairly.
  • Trash Delete Alert will accurately show folder count that will be deleted
  • Uploading model to inventory will show it in inventory. Because that makes sense.
