Firestorm “I see jelly people!”

I just updated the viewer and am testing the new features. So far it seems pretty good. Inara’s post about the new features helps a lot for understanding what has changed and how to handle the different changes. Thank you so much for your work, Inara!
I recommend reading Inara’s blog post so that you know what has changed. Good luck updating 🙂

Inara Pey: Living in a Modemworld

firestorm-logoMonday, August 8th saw Firestorm release version of their viewer. Coming a little over four months since the last release, 4.7.9 brings with it a lot of important changes from the Lab – perhaps most visible Avatar Complexity and graphics pre-sets – as well as a large number of nips, tucks, fixes and improvements from the Firestorm team and open source / TPV contributors.

As per my usual MO, what follows is  not an in-depth review of the release, but rather an overview, highlighting some of the more significant / interesting changes, updates and  fixes, which I feel will be of most interest to users.

For full details of all changes, and all due credits to contributors, etc., please refer to the official release notes.

When installing this release, uninstall the existing version and then install the new 4.7.9 release – no need for a clean install.

Firestorm 4.7.3: are you ready to rock?!

Today we got the newest Firestorm Version. This time I waited for it as I was really annoyed by loosing attachments when teleporting. This should be fixed now (thanks!!). And the Avatar height setting is back to quick preferences too (!). There are more features and I reblog Inara’s post about it for you all to read (and update).

firestorm-logoTuesday, August 18th saw the release of Firestorm This release comes a little later than had been planned, thanks largely to a series of last-minute blockers caused be assorted external influences (such as win 10 driver issues for Intel).

This is once again a major release, packing a huge amount into it, and which brings Firestorm pretty much to parity with the Lab’s code base. It also sees the return of the Linux 64-bit build to the fold.

Given the sheer number of updates in the release, I do not intend to cover everything here, but rather offer an overview of some of the more major / interesting changes, updates and  fixes to be found in the release.   for full details of all changes, and all due credits to contributors, etc., please refer to the official release notes.

My Viewer & blog stats & welcome in 2012

First of all “Happy New Year” to all readers!  Let’s have a great 2012.

I got a note from wordpress telling me a bit of about readers statistics. We had 5.358 clicks in 2011 (after 1.939 in 2010 and 951 in 2009) adding up to a total of 8.248 views. Whe have 97 posts published whereof 57 were written and published in 2011. Our readers come from all over the world, most of them from the US, followed by UK and Germany. There are readers from Paraguay, Columbia, Honduras, Indonesia, Malaysia … wow. Our busiest day was December 29th, 2011 with 106 clicks, the most seen text was about our Rubber Mare “Dana”. The clicks and views on our blog rise slowly but steadily. Thank you all for following our Second Life. Nonetheless this blog stays first and foremost our diary to save our memories which are part of our RL.

The first text of 2012 shall be different and shall introduce a new page of this blog called “My Viewer”. Here I’m going to share how I setted up the viewer that I use and I hope it will be helpful. We appreciate any comments and improvements. So have a look on the new “My Viewer”-page.

Have a great start into 2012!
