Linden Lab’s (LL) Communications Hub UI (CHUI) project is merged into Kokua Experimental viewers.

The Communication Hub UI  has Instant Messaging , Chat,  and Voice controls in one floater as was done in version 1 viewers.

Inprudence users have asked that Kokua implement the Imprudence UI for communications. I would like comments from Imprudence users about this interface .

This merge affected many parts of Kokua code. Please test and report problems using our bug tracker.

The CHUI project is due to be merged into LL’s viewer-development repository  in February. After that we will begin merging into our release viewer.

Please review our testing best practices wiki before logging on with these viewers.

Downloads are linked here.

Enjoy.

    Hello.

    Tested this and the previous versions on Ubuntu 12.04/amd64, as well as the link that you posted on Jan 23.

    I was able to use -login and -loginuri on all three versions.

    Tried MOAP on all three and the viewer portion seemed to work, but my system seems to be missing something so I’m unable to play videos in the viewer. I added a comment explaining that to issue 1170.

    Thank you for testing and the feedback. Flash video which is the video format from youtube is broken on 64 bit linux and likely 32 bit also.

    Please refer to this comment which contains links to firestorm and LL jira entries.
