ImpDev August 25 Meetup Recap

Yesterday’s ImpDev meeting went quite well! We decided that the immediate goal for Imprudence is to catch up with the other third party viewers. The Meerkat and Emerald viewers in particular have made fantastic advances, and we’re eager to integrate those changes and features into Imprudence.

We’ll also be rebasing Imprudence to the SL 1.23 source (Imprudence 1.0 and 1.1 were based on SL 1.21). That should bring some improvement to texture loading speed (McCabe estimates a 25% improvement), as well as new features like default upload permissions. We’ll eventually integrate Snowglobe’s HTTP Textures, which should really speed up texture loading, but we would need to do it in a way that doesn’t break compatibility with OpenSim.

Those are the main highlights of the discussion, but we talked about quite a few other things, too! You can read the summary and full transcript on the wiki, if you are interested.

Next week’s meetup falls on September 1 — which just so happens to be Imprudence’s 1st birthday, too! It’s hard to believe that it has been so long since we launched Imprudence. Phew!

    I’m curious to see how you’ll integrate Snowglobe’s texture loading and still make it compatible with OpenSim :)
