On Macs, the SL_Launcher and Second Life Viewer processes both show as icons on the Dock when running (hover over them to see which is which); this is known bug, and in a future update we'll fix it so they only show as a single icon - we apologize for the temporary inconvenience, but think you'll agree that the performance improvement (quite noticeable on most Macs) is worth it.
Get started (if you don’t already have a weapon and hud) at portal park, then bring your hunting spirit to the Isle of View to capture these adorably cute little rascals.
We are pleased to announce that our newest viewer update (126.96.36.1991732 Alex Ivy) is the first Linden Lab viewer to be built as a 64-bit application on both Windows and Mac.
Almost any Windows system sold in the last several years can run 64-bit Windows 10, even if it didn't come with that OS originally. at this time, we don't have a Linux build for this updated viewer. We're reorganizing the Linux build so that instead of a tarball, it produces a Debian package you can install with the standard tools, and rather than statically linking all the libraries it will just declare what it needs through the standard package requirements mechanism.
We'll post separately on the opensource-dev mailing list with information on where that project lives and how to contribute to it.
On February 14th from 10am-12pm SLT, join us at the Isle of View for a chance to hug and dunk some Lindens.
Bring your friends, bring your family, bring your one and only - when else are you going to get the chance to cozy up to a Linden or splash one into a cold tank of water?
The viewer now has one additional executable - the SL_Launcher.
This new component manages the viewer update process, and on Windows also ensures that you've got the best build for your system (in the future it may pick up some other responsibilities).
On June 15 we became aware that some classified ads had gone missing.
Upon investigation, we discovered that all renewing classified ads had expired themselves.
For Windows systems, the best build is usually the one that matches your operating system.
