Imprudence 1.3.0 RC2 Released

Imprudence 1.3.0 RC2 is now available for your downloading pleasure! Our focus for this release candidate has been addressing common problems and complaints from our users. Here are some highlights from this release:

  • Vivox voice chat support is now included right out of the box. You don’t need to manually install the voice chat components anymore! :D
  • Streaming audio/video now supports the AAC codec (sound encoding), which is commonly used for sound in MP4 videos.
  • Fixed numerous bugs from 1.3.0 RC1.
  • Added a few new features, like the ability to ignore group chat from individual groups, adjust the volume of gesture sounds, teleport to ground (in the Advanced menu), and more!
  • Read the release notes for all the juicy details!

As always, we ask that you post your feedback in the forums. We rely on your reports and feedback to make Imprudence better!


[Update 2010-09-02: Due to high traffic, we’re now hosting the installers on Google Code.]

If you’re new to Imprudence and curious what makes us different, our features list is a good place to start reading.


P.S. Did you know that Imprudence will be 2 years old on September 1? We’re planning parties on 3rd Rock Grid and Second Life to celebrate! :D Stay tuned for details!

    I can’t log on to SL using either the optimized version or the regular version of RC2. I have a computer that is capable of running the optimized version – I was running RC1 with no problems. I can still log on using the 8/14 version, but every time I try RC2, I get a message stating: Unable to connect to Second Life. DNS could not resolve the host name. Please help me. One other question, what does associate Imprudence with SLURLS mean and do?

  2. Abel Paulino

    I have sound issues. My gestures dont work. No sounds work.

    Only voice, media and music works, but the other sounds not.

  3. Minty

    The audio streaming does not work.

  4. Nynaeve

    in each version i have sound issues with streaming music and the new RC is no exception. Not all streams, just some. Hopefully it will be helpful to give an example. is the station i listen to while building. On viewer 2.0 or Emergence the sound is fantastic and comes through great. on Imprudence it keeps trying to start then stops. It’s getting frustrating because i want to swap to Imprudence full time, but i need my music :)

    After downloading the RC2 version.. twice actually; every time i tried to log in, it would show up with the initial gray box for clearing cache, but afterward, and hours of waiting, the log in window never showed up.

  6. Maya

    Voice doesn’t work, even on this latest release that’s supposed to have it built in :(

  7. Reynard

    I saw the derender option added in the weekly release, but it doesn’t exist in the RC2 release, at least not in the pie menu where it should be.

    I luv using the minimap radar, i think it is wonderful, i just wish few improvement could be made:
    1. the minimap can be separate from the avatar radar list, because the mini map consume a big space on the screen.
    2. why is sometimes tracking with the pointing red arrow is not available for some avatar?

    please advice me..

  9. throb Andel

    i couldn’t track some avatar, the “track” button just when grey colour…. Tracking is very important for game players who play hunting games… please look into this.. thank you.

    My Imprudence wishlist:

    * Fix the 4,096 bug
    * Hypergrid landmarks
    * Whisper voice
    * Media-on-a-prim

    Meanwhile, love what you guys are doing — I use this viewer a lot.

    so far so good i modded the font and added the dark ui and i like it as one of the hundreds running away from emerald i would like to thank you for having a alternative to the the v2 that really works :)

    Well, it looks like alpha textures are loading properly with HTTP texture fetching now, and it’s not causing crashes either, but where did de-render go??? I liked being able to make ugly people/things that I don’t want to see disappear.

  13. Chuckie Breda

    When might we expect implementation of the Qtmediakit? Not being able to play FLASH media is the ONLY thing that keeps me roaming back to other viewers (you KNOW what I mean).

  14. Xander Whelan

    Hi, I would like to know if it will be possible to choose the colour of the layer TATTOO in the next version, because it’s not possible now!

    I hope it will.


  15. Lehna

    I can not hear anything with the viewer Imprudence do not know what to do to hear audio!

  16. Sabre ulrik

    M. Avro , I have the same problem and wondering if you fixed and how? Thanks

  17. Emiley Tomsen

    I’ll add to the confirmations that video streaming wasn’t fixed, getting no audio with the streaming, and is unable to use video systems that sync up. If you need to test this, can try the theatre at region “This Island Earth”, we use a video system that allows people to sync up with other users to the current part of the movie.

    I’m really impressed with Imprudence, so I’m hoping this gets fixed, I’d love to add Imprudence to our list of Viewers that work at the theatre.

    Also having a radar and draw distance that went up to 4096metres would be great. It’s one of the few things that keeps me from using Imprudence as my main Viewer.

  18. Mono babii

    I have the ultimate version but i dont listen any audio only voice chat and media. gestures, air, water etc…dont listen…
    any with this problem or any can help me?

  19. beau mynx

    just a question.. are yall going to sometimes soon put in the use of second attachment points and radar like emerald and emergance have? it would be wonderful thing!

  20. Jordan Morgenrote

    I can’t get it to run on my computer, it says that the MSVCR71.dll file may be missing, and to try to reinstall. I tried, it didn’t fix it.

  21. Arwen Bartlett

    I have the issue of the viewer starting, gets to clearing cache then just goes away, I ran imprudence.exe from the msdos prompt to see what was happening and I get no errors just like the viewer is running fine however the viewer never shows up. The latest viewer I can run is the RC1 beta 4 weekly version every other more recent release does the same thing, I am running XP Pro 32bit OS with a NVidia 6200 vid card.

  22. McCabe Maxsted

    @Jordan: are you sure you’re trying to install 1.3 RC2, and not 1.2.2?

    @Arwen: yikes. If you could send us your crash logs ( after this happens in RC2, that’d help a lot in figuring out what’s going on.

  23. Chuckie Breda

    Flash media support PLEASE!!!!!!!
