Here is a new release of the Cool VL Viewer, available now from http://sldev.free.fr/:

Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.32 (stable branch, Snowglobe v1.5-based)

This release got many improvements (including crash fixes for old Snowglobe/v1 low occurrence bugs). Update is recommended.

New in this release:
  • New BetterFloaterInspect patch: from code by Hazim Gazov (a part of the code relating to much less interesting faces and vertex per primitive reports was not implemented), this patch adds reporting of the number of scripts and the total number of inventory items (including the aforementioned scripts) in each object. I also made it so root primitive names appear in bold in the list.
  • New RenderVertexBufferTweaks patch: based on code from Singularity viewer which includes a backport of the v2 viewer RenderUseStreamVBO setting (useful to speed up rendering on ATI cards with VBO enabled) by Shyotl Kuhr and a performance tweak (activated by setting the RenderBlankAllocatedVBO to FALSE, which tells the viewer not to zero-fill newly allocated VBOs in memory) by Siana Gearz. I modified the debug settings update code to make it (very slightly) faster.
  • New FixedFastTimerView patch: cleans up the Fast Timers view, removing the useless and badly positioned minimize button and floater title, moving the close button in the right place and making it actually functional, and preventing the tree containing the list of the fast timer names to overflow the bottom edge of the floater.
  • New ProperObjectsMute patch: fixes the broken objects muting code (especially for muting attachments), replaces and contains my MuteBlueDialogs patch (mutes the blue dialogs coming from items or pertaining to avatars you muted) and adds actual muting for objects IMs (which didn't work at all in official viewers).
  • New LLSelectMgrGetGridCrashFix patch (by Tom Meta): fix for a crash bug in LLSelectMgr::getGrid().
  • New LLViewerObjectCrashFixes patch: backport from v2 of two fixes for potential crash bugs in LLViewerObject (replaces the former setParameterEntryInUsePotentialCrashFix patch which only dealt with one of the two fixes).
  • New llstringCrashFix patch (by Armin Weatherwax): fixes a potential crash bug in llstring.cpp.
  • New LLHandMotionOnUpdateCrashFix patch: fixes a crash bug that may occur just when uploading animations with unknown hand motions.
  • New LLHttpClientFixes patch: backport from v2 of two fixes (bad header parsing and memory leak) to LLHttpClient (replaces the old LlhttpclientMemLeak patch which only plugged the memory leak).
  • New FixedLLSD patch: backport from v2 of fixes to quirks in LLSD implementation. Also implements workarounds for remaining compilation-time cast failures (to F32, by Siana Gearz, and to U32, by me) that affected cached controls: this patch is needed by newer patches that make use of LLCachedControl<F32> and LLCachedControl<U32>.
  • New AudioZeroMasterVolumeStartupQuirk patch (by Jonathan Yap): fixes a quirk that may make the viewer to fail to set the volume on launch to its last saved setting.
  • New SymbolsAndConstantsNoDuplicate patch (by Aleric Inglewood): prevents some common constants and symbols to appear multiple times in the final, linked executable.
  • Updated RestrainedLove patch: this new version (2.06.00.02) prevents cheating by hiding a couple of variables from the debug settings floater.
  • Updated TeleportHistory patch: this new version adds the history list saving over sessions (code borrowed from Phoenix with bugfix by me), allows to log the departure location and to optionally disable the "Completed teleport from ..." messages in the chat log (code by me).
  • Updated BetterDebugSettings patch: this new version adds a variable names filter, (inspired from McCabe Maxsted's search feature as implemented in Imprudence, but which actually filters the list in the combo instead of just displaying the first matching variable name).
  • Updated BlurryAndGreyTextures patch: this new version plugs two more cases that could lead to failed texture fetches (one case plugged by Siana Gearz and another by me). As a result, the old WorkerThreadWhenTerminating patch which is no more adequate for (and actually breaks thing in) the new code, was removed.
  • Updated BetterPreferencesGraphics patch: this new version adds the "Stream VBO" option to the Hardware Settings floater ((un)sets the RenderUseStreamVBO variable: see the description for the RenderVertexBufferTweaks above). Unchecking this option is recommended (normally provides faster frame rates) for users of ATI cards when the Vertex Buffer Objects support is enabled.
  • Updated RendererCachedControls patch: this new version brings a few more minor speed improvements.
  • Updated ObjectBackup and TemporaryTextureUpload patches: no new functionality neither fix in these new versions, just some minor code cleanup.
  • Updated CoolPreferences patch: this new version adds the "Log the TP departure locations into the Teleport History" and "Log the TP departure locations into the Chat History" to the "Miscellaneous" sub-tab of the "Cool features" tab in the "Preferences" floater.
  • Updated CoolVLViewerBranding patch: this new version adds some credits to the About floater, and changes a couple of default settings: the default language for the viewer is now en-us (if you set a different language in the General tab of the Preferences floater and you really don't mind dealing with partially untranslated menus and floaters, you will want to set back your language preference after updating the viewer), and the voice chat is now disabled by default (if you were using voice chat before updating, you'll have to reactivate it once from the Voice Chat tab of the Preferences floater)

Enjoy ! :D

Here is a new release of the Cool VL Viewer, available now from http://sldev.free.fr/:

Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.33 (stable branch, Snowglobe v1.5-based)

New in this release:
  • New NotecardBadLengthPossibleCrashFix patch (by Shyotl Kuhr): fixes a potential crash that could occur when opening a malformed/corrupted notecard.
  • New MinorLogMessagesCleanup patch: fixes a couple of log messages.
  • Updated AlphaAndTattooSupport patch: this new version restores the compatibility with viewers v2.6.3 and newer. See this thread for details.
  • Updated BetterFloaterInspect patch: this new version fixes the bugs in the original author's code that prevented to retrieve the inventory info for child primitives, and adds better report of what is going on (with either a question mark or "(loading)" in the corresponding cell for (respectively) unknown or loading inventory info). I also added a Close and a Refresh button to the floater (Refresh can be used for inspected objects which inventory was just changed).
  • Updated NewScriptFunctions patch: implements the full lscript llibrary from v2 viewers and adds the newest LSL functions (introduced in Le Tigre beta server).
  • Updated CoolVLViewerBranding patch: this new version gets rid of the last references to "Snowglobe" in the (en-us) menus and notification messages.

Enjoy ! :D

PS: building gotcha (relevant only to builders): if you are using cmake v2.6.4 (or older) to build the viewer and you are building against LL's provided pre-built libraries and you are using parallel building (i.e. building on a multi-core CPU system), you will encounter a cmake bug with nested dependencies (cmake launches the building of llcommon, needed to build lscript, before it downloads the pre-built Boost libraries, leading to a failure to find a couple of boost header files). The solution is either: to update to cmake v2.8, or to force a non-parallel build, or to install manually the Boost header files in the source tree prior to launch the building, or to simply relaunch the building process (if you are using the cmake-SL script to build the viewer, just type: cmake-SL --retry) after the failure (the boost libraries will have been installed in the mean time and the second attempt to build should pass). Work around implemented for v1.25.0.37 and v1.26.0.3.

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

Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.37 (stable branch)

New in this release:
  • Updated RestrainedLove patch: when "Wear"ing an object do not search for attachment names in that object name anywhere but between an opening and a closing parenthesis; i.e. "Top dress attachment" will not be considered as to be attached at the "Top" HUD position any more, but "My preferred HUD (top - whatever here)" is still properly identified as a Top HUD attachment. See this message for details.
  • Updated NotifyOutWorldTransactions patch: this new version replaces the "Paid L$NN to upload" dialog with an "Upload successful (charged L$NN)" notify tip, since the patch already gave a notice for the balance decrease after each charged upload.
  • Updated NewScriptFunctions patch: this new version works around a bug in cmake v2.6 (building fix).
  • Updated NewPrebuiltLibraries patch: this new version fixes a typo in the download link for the Windows version of the Ogg-Vorbis pre-built library.

Cool VL Viewer v1.26.0.3 (experimental branch)

New in this release:
  • Same changes as in v1.25.0.37 (see above).
  • llmath library updated to LL's viewer v2.6 one.
  • Reorganized doc in sources (added Cool VL Viewer's doc too).
  • Removed all the test cases in sources (they were useless beyond the primary implementation of the classes they tested, some were outdated, and most never worked when building under Windows anyway).
  • Got rid of the Windows-only patch (now integrated in the base sources).

Enjoy ! :D

Here is a new release of the Cool VL Viewer, available now from http://sldev.free.fr/:

Cool VL Viewer v1.26.0.5 (experimental branch)

New in this release:
  • Added worldmap URI support for the new SL web search (so that the "Map" buttons in the search results work properly).
  • Updated the OpenSim grids list (if you are aware of mistakes or changes to that list, feel free to use this thread to let me know).

Enjoy ! :D

Update: Oops ! I packaged the wrong grids.xml file with v1.26.0.5... if you downloaded v1.26.0.5 before 2011-06-13 18:35 UTC, then you got the package with an old (non-updated) grids.xml file in it... Either get v1.26.0.5b, or get the proper grids.xml file and place it into the app_settings/ sub-directory of the Cool VL Viewer v1.26.0 installation directory.
