Download of libraries isn't working anymore??? It just leads to "Code Download" there leads back to this Wiki. --Shiva Aabye 00:02, 04 Sept 2007 (CET +1)

Thanks. Bugging internally. In the future, this sort of thing would best go on the JIRA. --Soft Linden 15:08, 4 September 2007 (PDT)

When the source of libllmozlib will be released? I want it for x86_64. does not want to compile for linux. --terrex 07:34, 19 July 2007 (PDT)

I hope the source for gets released soon. Developing around that crash-on-edit bug is awful. :(

It would be nice if there was a column indicating which of the downloads can no longer connect to the grids.

When the source of will be available for download? Thanks. --Terrex Vieria 05:02, 3 June 2007 (PDT) is a small change to add Korean support. For now you can click through the upgrade prompt. 1.17 is already blogged about. If you need the source for Korean support, I suggest to wait for 1.17 sources. Dzonatas Sol 12:33, 3 June 2007 (PDT)
Ok Thanks, I did not know about that minor change. I will await. --Terrex Vieria 04:37, 7 June 2007 (PDT)

Ok...I'm hoping to find an eager developer to update the table with new releases, because I have a ton of them:

There are three releases:

  • "" off of the Branch_1-13-2 branch (where our official releases come from)-done
  • "20070126a" off of the "release" branch -done
  • "FL-" off of the beta-1-14-0 branch (where the First Look viewer comes from)- is does not refer to a valid file.?

Could someone update the table? The file names are entirely predictable based on the source names above. Bonus points for devising a MediaWiki template for making updates easier. -- Rob Linden 15:18, 26 January 2007 (PST)

Slightly Reformatted the table, added a template for doing rows: Template:SourceArchiveRow

Usage: {{SourceArchiveRow|date|branch|version}}

Example: {{SourceArchiveRow|2007-Jan-19|Branch_1-13-2 (r56958), last synced with release at r56659 |}}

Note: Date can be in several formats, including ~~~~~ which inserts the current date, and time

Excellent work! Thanks Thraxis and Jesse! -- Rob Linden 23:58, 26 January 2007 (PST)

Checksums for this release

I'll probably need to figure out where to upload these. In the meantime, here are the checksums - Rob Linden 01:19, 27 January 2007 (PST)

Time for a formatting refresh?

We're probably due for splitting out a Source download archive page, and perhaps refreshing the format. I'd like to make sure adding new releases is a very low maintenance exercise, but otherwise, there's a lot of latitude to futz. Anyone care to take on a redesign? -- Rob Linden 17:52, 26 November 2007 (PST)

How about a link at the end of each section (as the list/table currently is)... a "more" button? Clicky on the "more" then takes clicker to the archive page at the releated section. Repeat as needed for pages and pages of the tables. ??? Dzonatas Sol 20:58, 26 November 2007 (PST)
I'd make a page for each major version and put all the dated snapshots on a dedicated page. The current versions would be listed on this page. All the other pages would be nested pages. For example: Source downloads/1.18 -- Strife Onizuka 22:46, 26 November 2007 (PST)

Comments on table format

The table for download files has column headings on the first row (Date, Branch, Source, Artwork, Libs, Build Notes), but each cell for Source, Artwork and Libs contain "Source:", "Artwork", and "Libraries" as the first line. I have a feeling that it is a waste of table space. A better format may be something like:

Date Branch Source Artwork Libraries Build Notes

ver 1.XX.YY

viewer-1.XX.YY (md5sums) Windows (CRLF)
Mac/Linux (LF)
All platforms Windows
This entry is just an example.

I know we need to update Template:SourceDownloadRowSnapshot to change the table format, but I think it's better to discuss this issue here. Thoughts?

--Alissa Sabre 05:24, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Only whole article editable due to __NOEDITSECTION__

Is there a particular reason why this article has __NOEDITSECTION__ in its source? If not I'll remove that, as editing only single sections is usually a useful option.--Boroondas Gupte 23:40, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Done. --Boroondas Gupte 13:27, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Access Denied?

Snowglobe v1.32 Artwork and Library downloads are returning an "Access Denied" XML response. Talarus Luan 14:28, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

1.32? Do you mean Second Life Viewer 1.23, maybe? Or Snowglobe 1.3.2?
Anyway, the bundles have been deleted from the server by mistake and had to be re-created (see SNOW-604). The new URLs for Snowglobe 1.4 can be found at I guess they work for Snowglobe 1.3.2, too. Merov will re-create the bundles for other versions, too, and then update this wiki article.
