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

Cool VL Viewer v1.23.5.35 (stable branch, Windlight renderer)
Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.12 (stable branch, Snowglobe v1.5-based)

New in these releases:
  • New AlignTool patch: Adds Qarl's align tool to the build tools floater.
  • Updated BlurryAndGreyTextures patch (for v1.25): this new version has been thoroughly worked on, and I finally managed to bring both the HTTP texture fetch worker and the texture cache on par with LL's v2.2 viewer (and with additional fixes to it), so that pretty much all texture fetching, rezzing and caching issues are solved (you may still encounter missing textures every now and then, but this is a server side problem). As a result, the HTTP texture fetching is now on by default in v1.25 (and it's pretty damned FAST !).
  • Updated TextureCacheHiccups patch (for v1.23. Integrated in BlurryAndGreyTextures for v1.25): this rewritten from scratch version fixes a race condition issue that could occur in Nicholaz' original version (a texture could get flagged invalid in the cache, then re-fetched by the texture fetcher, and deleted while or after fetched by the cache worker, resulting into a corrupted texture).
  • Updated RestrainedLove patch: this new version fixes a random crash bug sometimes occurring with @detach.
  • Updated HTMLlinksInGroupNotices patch: this new version makes the HTML links clickable in the group notices history as well.

Note that starting from today, the v1.19.2 branch of the Cool VL Viewer will not be maintained neither updated any more and will be retired on the 2010/12/31. See this post for details.

Enjoy ! :D

Cool VL Viewer v1.23.5.36 (stable branch, Windlight renderer)
Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.13 (stable branch, Snowglobe v1.5-based)

New in these releases:
  • New getInventoryItemByAssetCrashFix patch: fixes a crash bug encountered in OpenSim. See this post for details.
  • New GrassAndTreeSelection patch: implements Qarl's grass and tree selection fix.
  • New PreDecodedUIsounds patch: preload and decode UI sounds on login. This patch is also meant to use any UI sound file held in the skins/default/sounds/ directory of the viewer installation (preventing any need for preloading and reducing the delay before playing an UI sound for the first time in the session to zero). I could alas not include the decoded UI sound files to today's releases because I'm still waiting for the OK from LL (possible license issues): see this message for details. You may however add the decoded UI sounds yourself to your viewer installation by copying them from the cache directory (where they are present only while the viewer is running) into a skins/default/sounds/ directory that you must create in the viewer installation directory. The list of the UI sounds is available here.
  • Updated NumberOfDecimalsInTools patch: this new version fixes the issue where very small changes (< 0.001) in the prim size or position were not taken into account.
  • Updated MoreGridsDynamic patch: this new version adds one grid to the list and fixes the parameters for a couple of others.
  • Updated AreaSearch patch: this new version fixes an issue where info could fail to be fetched when paying an object or abuse-reporting it.
  • Updated CoolVLViewerBranding patch: this new version updates the contributors list in the About floater.

Enjoy ! :D

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

Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.15 (stable branch, Snowglobe v1.5-based)

New in this release:
  • New llTextBox patch: implements full support for the llTextBox() LSL function.
  • New DeRuthing patch: this is a backport from v2.3 of its de-Ruthing (avatar un-clouding) feature, with an additional bug fix.
  • New FeatureManagerQuirks patch: fixes a couple of quirks in the graphic card feature manager code.
  • New ErrorMarkersLogMessages patch: fixes quirks in post-crash session log messages.
  • New LayersetWithoutCompositeLogSpam patch: prevents lag-generating log spam when encountering layer sets without composite.
  • Updated DisplayNamesSupport patch: this new version adds display name support for the active speakers panels and for the IM windows title. It also fixes the lack of display name support for the Profile tab of the Silver skin. See this thread for details.
  • Updated NewScriptFunctions patch: this new version implements display names related functions, and implements the viewer side code for the AGENT_AUTOPILOT flag in llGetAgentInfo() (see this thread for details).
  • Updated Radar patch: this new version implements display names support.

  • Updated ItemLinksAndMultipleAttachmentsSupport patch: this new version implements new debug variables (OSAllowMultipleAttachments and OSAllowInventoryLinks, which are set to FALSE by default), so that the multiple attachments and inventory links features can be enabled only on demand for OpenSim grids, since they cause issues with grids not supporting those features (see this message for details).
  • Updated UnmappedVertexBuffersLogSpam patch: this new version further reduces some lag-generating spam (only one warning message is now logged).

Enjoy ! :D

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

Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.16 (stable branch, Snowglobe v1.5-based)

New in this release:
  • New CleanerLogMessages patch: this patch fixes a bug to get rid of the unwanted "LLError::NoClassInfo::" prefixes in the log messages, and disables the DEBUG log level for shaders in the logcontrol.xml file (probably a left over from a Snowglobe RC candidate).
  • Updated RestrainedLove patch: this new version implements Marine's latest additions to RestraineLove (bringing the Cool VL Viewer on par with Marine's RestrainedLove v2.3) and improves some cosmetic aspects of the inventory folder and clothing item context menus.
  • Updated BlurryAndGreyTextures patch: this new version lowers a great deal the viewer's memory usage in crowded areas (see this thread for details).
  • Updated AlphaAndTattooSupport patch: this new version adds the missing "Tattoo" and "Alpha" menu items in "Edit" -> "Take Off Clothing" and in the pie menu for your avatar (in "Take Off >" -> "Clothes >" -> "More >").

Enjoy ! :D

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

Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.17 (stable branch, Snowglobe v1.5-based)

New in this release:
  • Updated RestrainedLove patch: this new version adds filtering of display names for @shownames and, when wearing a locked item, now allows Wear and Add to/Replace/Take off outfit per default (can still be switched off from the Advanced -> RestrainedLove menu should you have old RestrainedLife attachments that can't deal with the auto-reattach of accidentally kicked items).
  • Updated BlurryAndGreyTextures patch: this new version fixes a bug that was spotted by Max Fox in the code (see this thread for details) and improves slightly the anti-hiccups texture cache cleanup algorithm.
  • Updated DisplayNamesSupport patch: this new version adds support for display names in the IM windows, in the friends list and friends-related notices (see this thread for details). It also fixes an IM log files naming issue that was introduced in the last version.
  • Updated HighlightPostsWithOwnName patch: this new version allows to highlight chat/group IM posts containing your display name (can be toggled off independently) and allows to define an arbitrary number of nicknames (just enter a list of words, either space or comma separated, in the "Nicknames" input line found in the "Preferences" floater, "Cool features" tab, "Chat/IM" sub-tab).
  • Updated Radar patch: this new version fixes minor (cosmetic bugs) dealing with display names.
  • Updated RevertUIchanges patch: this new version forces a refresh event for the friends list when the Friends floater is opened (to deal with the asynchronous display names loading).
  • Updated CoolPreferences patch: this new version implements changes to the "Cool features" tab, "Chat/IM" sub-tab to deal with the above changes.

Enjoy ! :D

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

Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.19 (stable branch, Snowglobe v1.5-based)

This is mainly a bugfix release (updating to it is recommended), and here what's new:
  • Updated AutoMaxGroups patch: this new version fixes a bug that would have prevented auto-detection of max group number in SL (but since the number of groups is still limited to 25, no one could notice so far...).
  • Updated BlurryAndGreyTextures patch: this time, I think I got it right and the bad hiccups during cache purging should now be history...

Enjoy and Happy New Year ! :D

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

Cool VL Viewer v1.25.0.21 (stable branch, Snowglobe v1.5-based)

New in this release:
  • New ParcelEncroachmentSupport patch: allows to return objects encroaching your parcels, provided parcel encroachment returns are enabled in the sim server (use the Region Debug Console to find out if they are).
  • New PngImageIgnoreBackground patch: fixes the uploading issues with PNG images having a background color set.
  • Updated RestrainedLove patch: with a new @adjustheight command, see this thread for details.
  • Updated FloaterRegionDebugConsole patch: this new version supports asynchronous console replies that were implemented in the latest SL sim server versions.
  • Updated LLFontCrash patch: this new version (mostly relevant to Linux users) prevents the UI background from becoming transparent when taking High Resolution snapshots or changing the hardware graphic settings while the OpenGL restart crash workaround is enabled (LL_OPENGL_RESTART_CRASH_BUG environment variable set).
  • Updated ImprovedBuildTools patch: this new version extends the slice parameters down to 0.02% (for max slice) and up to 0.98% (for min slice).
  • Updated BlurryAndGreyTextures patch: further speeds up cache texture purging and forces a full purge of the cache on relog when changing its size in the Preferences/Network tab (failing to purge the cache could otherwise result in corrupted texture entries and consequently in "rainbow" textures on relog).
  • Updated SimulatorVersionNotification patch: this new version allows to disable entirely the sim server version change notifications when you move/TP from one region to another.
  • Updated CoolPreferences patch: this new version implements a new setting in the Miscellaneous tab for the SimulatorVersionNotification patch above.
  • Updated CoolVLViewerBranding patch: with updated credits.

Enjoy ! :D
