Kokua-3.6.3 is released

***Note to windows users***
The name of Kokua changed from “Kokua Viewer” to “Kokua” to allow auto updating to work properly. If you are using a release named Kokua Viewer and then install Kokua the versions will be side-by-side. If you then decide to use the un-installer to remove Kokua Viewer it will remove your settings file. On windows 7 the settings are stored at C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Kokua. You need to backup this folder and then restore from the back up after removing Kokua Viewer.

Automatic updating will be in play for users that updated to Kokua-3.6.2 (about 350 users). Please leave comments about how it worked.

The folks at Singularity recently developed (and licensed it LGPL) a neat feature to allow prim export to Collada (dae) and Wavefront (obj) formats. Jessica Wabbit has contributed a port of this to Kokua for Collada export. Based on user feedback she may include the obj exports at a later date. Testing this feature shows it complies with Second Life permissions. You must be the creator and the owner to export. I tested this on the beta grid with a couple random prims and then on a cube I created. It seems to solid in that respect.

Highlights

– Code base to Second Life (SL) Viewer 3.6.3.

Kokua Team Contributions

– Added a new “Permissions” sub-menu for friends on the People floater.

– Added display of group and role UUIDs at the end of the group’s General and Roles panels.

– Added Open Simulator Community Conference 2013 grid to the grid drop down list.

– Added plain text chat history as an option in chat preferences.

– Fine tuned notifications for the automatic update feature.

    Nicky, tried building a 64bit linux client and am stuck with it looking for a ogg library dependency. Did something not get pushed? Also let me know if you prefer questions about building go to an email account.

    Yayy, I like this release. Whatever happened I’ve got far less graphics glitches (stray triangles all over on an Intel HD4000) then before, so I actually can use Kokua again. It is still the only viewer I’ve found to give me streaming media and voice simultanously on a Linux x86_64 system.

    Thanks for your efforts :-)

    @RavenmanSkwer: We are doing both Imprudence and Kokua. Nicky is mostly working on Kokua, while I work mostly on Imprudence. Recently I’ve been hard at work on migrating our web site to SourceForge though, so no time for Imprudence development until that is mostly done.
