Here are two new releases of the Cool VL Viewer, available now from http://sldev.free.fr/:

These are recommended updates.


Cool VL Viewer v1.28.0.11 (stable branch):
Cool VL Viewer v1.28.1.1 (experimental branch):

New in these releases:
  • Backported from LL's viewer a fix to "'Unable to buy L$' error persists until relog".
  • Backported from LL's viewer a fix to "crash accessing LLHUDText".
  • Backported from LL's viewer "validate region id for environments".
  • Backported from LL's viewer a fix to coprocedure manager trashing during very large inventory downloads.
  • Linux only: updated the Linux SLVoice client from Snowglobe's to the "last known good" Snowstorm's version (still a 32 bits client). Sadly, this was insufficient to fix the many breakages (such as slow or non updating Speakers list) that came up with server-side changes implemented over years to cope with newer SLVoice versions for Windows and macOS.
  • Linux only: as a result of the above issue, changed the viewer voice code to allow using a Windows SLVoice.exe client launched via Wine. Added a new "install-wine-SLVoice.sh" script into the installation directory; after making sure Wine is installed on your system, simply run this script from a terminal to setup everything for the viewer.
  • Linux only: fixed (again) the extraction of the gcc version number in the cmake build scripts (the new algorithm failed on some Linux distros). See this thread for details.
  • Updated FMOD Studio to v2.01.05.
  • Code cleanup and some optimizations (several of which thanks to Kathrine's contributions).


Enjoy ! :D

These are bug-fix releases and recommended updates.


Cool VL Viewer v1.28.0.12 (stable branch):
Cool VL Viewer v1.28.1.2 (experimental branch):

New in these releases:
  • Fixed the bug introduced in last week's releases and that caused missing displaying of some hover-texts on HUDs.
  • Backported from LL's viewer a fix to a "crash due to missing animation when avatar hits the ground after falling down".
  • Backported from Alchemy viewer (Rye Mutt's code) some speed optimizations to the extended environment settings code.
  • Reworked a bit the snapshot floater (better layout for resolution and image type UI elements).
  • Implemented support in the build scripts for Python v3.8 and v3.9.
  • Linux only: updated jemalloc to the latest git version.
  • Code cleanup and other minor optimizations.


Enjoy ! :D

Cool VL Viewer v1.28.0.13 (stable branch):

New in this release:
  • Changed the login credentials saving logic so that when the "Remember login credentials" check box is not checked on the login screen, and you successfully log into the grid, the corresponding credentials entry gets wiped out from the saved grids logins file (thus forgetting them for good instead of just in the "last login" settings of the viewer). The "Remember login credentials" check box is also now hidden when the viewer cannot change the saved logins (this is the case when multiple sessions are started: only the first session may change the saved logins).
  • Resynced the "About land" floater code with LL's so to show public access when the parcel is not set as such but instead as group access without a group set.
  • Backported from LL's viewer "handle cases of corrupted textures in cache".
  • Improved the particles systems prioritization algorithm to advantage closer ones (relatively to the camera) when comparing them with equally "spammy" but farther systems.
  • Backported from Black Dragon viewer (Niran's code) a minor speed optimization for invisible faces rendering on rigged meshes.
  • Backported from Firestorm viewer (Ansariel's code) the removal of a silly and totally pointless menu bar keyboard shortcut to allow using the corresponding key combination (CTRL F10) for gestures.
  • Linux only: removed support for compiling with the crashing version of CEF 81.
  • Linux only: exposed the LL_CEF_OPTIONS environment variable in the 'cool_vl_viewer' wrapper script.
  • Updated the security root certificates file to match LL's latest version.
  • Code cleanup (with removal of old/untested/useless "headless" viewer code) and minor optimizations.


Cool VL Viewer v1.28.1.3 (experimental branch):

Same changes as v1.28.0.13, plus:
  • Linux only: fixed CEF 86 to build without SHIM (memory manager wrapper) and therefore to allow running it under the jemalloc allocator without crashing. Modified Dullahan to start CEF with the --in-process-gpu option and thus prevent GPU processes crashes. Updated the CEF plugin to use my patched CEF 86 version. Added a compile time option to still allow to build the viewer web plugin against CEF 74, just in case.


Enjoy ! :D
