There are also fixes for in-world Flash playback, upload fees, and other bugs. See the release notes for full details.
According to a recent analysis of hypergrid traffic, the Kokua viewer is used by around 2 percent of OpenSim users, but it has its supporters.
“For me, right now, it is both the fastest and most compatible viewer as a Mac user,” said Xmir grid founderÂ Geir NÃ¸klebye, who is also known as Gavin Hird in-world. “This is because they pick up all the bug fixes and feature improvements from the Second Life viewer very fast and use the most updated libraries. This should also yield good results on Windows, and I know the developer is eager to fix Linux issues. Many were fixed in this release.”
NÃ¸klebye added that the Kokua team works closedly with Marine Kelly on the Restrained Love viewer, are quick to fix reported bugs, and have been supportive of their OpenSim users.
“Since they use the latest Linden code, the viewer should also behave wellÂ in Second Life, so it is an all-round tool,”Â NÃ¸klebye told Hypergrid Business. “It lacks a few features from Singularity, but getting there.”
