Imprudence 1.0.0 RC2 Released

Imprudence 1.0.0 RC2 is now available for download!

The focus of this release is fixing the issues you guys reported with RC1. As you can see from the release notes, we fixed quite a few of them!

This RC also contains likely fixes for VWR-8920 (disappearing attachments) and VWR-9358 (palletized textures). That means we think they should be fixed now, but we’re not 100% sure. If either of those issues affects you in regular SL or RC1, please let us know whether you still experience them in RC2.

There is one issue that we didn’t get to fix in this RC, but will be fixed for the final 1.0.0 release: Windows users have reported that some textures with alpha channels are uploaded incorrectly, such that they appear half-transparent all over; this also affects baked system skirt textures. You can fix this issue by downloading the newest version of OpenJPEG, as described in the forums. Imprudence 1.0.0 will ship with the new OpenJPEG, but we didn’t discover the fix in time to put it in RC2.

Please note that there is still no sound or voice yet. If you really need either of those, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait a little bit longer while we work them out. Sound is scheduled for 1.1.0, which we hope to have out in mid-January. We don’t have a timeline for voice yet, since we haven’t had the time to do the necessary licensing research for that yet.

Just like last time, please help us by giving us feedback in the forums.

    I won’t be using the viewer until sound/voice is implemented – as I use both nearly all the time… BUT: From what I can see so far from testing the viewer out when I didn’t need sound or voice at the time – it’s amazing! It runs much better than any other viewer I’ve ever used on this PC. Keep up the great work, can’t wait for you guys to implement voice/sound. LOTS of people will be drawn to the viewer when that hits, I imagine.

    This is fantastic, kids!

    Finally, a viewer with (comparatively) sane resource utilisation on my 2.4 GHz Core Duo 2 toting MBP…

    I have been testing it under load this night and it seems so far very robust. The performance and stability are shockingly superior to the official viewer. Thanks a million!

    Well if its easier on resources and works faster, I’m ready to try it!
