Kokua is now merged with Marine Kelley’s RLV viewer. Planned release is in January 2015. In the meantime those wanting an early look can download and install a test version from . Different RLV settings exist internal to this viewer than the current Kokua release so, we recommend a clean install. By default, RLV is disabled. Enable through Advanced -> RLV Enable / Disable main menu selection then, restart the viewer. Hopefully, there will be users / testers that will leave it disabled as both disabled and enabled modes need testing.

Reasoning for this change:

Marine Kelley keeps her RLV viewer very close to the SecondLife viewer code base. Thus, simplifying Kokua’s upstream merge effort.

Kokua-3.7.22 is released

This is a bug fix release. For SecondLife users this will be a required update for all.

Ticket #292: Selection of the TELEPORT button from inside an SL search response resulted in failed teleport notices.

Ticket #322: If an automatic update failed, a notification presented and a link would be highlighted for manual
download of the update. This link referenced a location that was no longer maintained. The latest updates were not at this location. Both old and new locations now have current files. This release corrects the notification link to reference the new File downloads.

Changed the default for region coordinates to always be present in the location bar.

Merged up the current SL viewer. This was only a couple changesets to maintain sync with SL’s viewer release. The bulk of that release was already in Kokua.

Kokua-3.7.21 is released. However, taking into account the cohort’s merged in early and if SL merges these in one at a time the version is about 3.7.24 and one-half.

– SL Release 3.7.19 HTTP Pipelining Cohort Release Notes

– SL Release 3.7.20 Attachments Cohort (merged while still in cohort status) Release Notes

– SL Release 3.7.20 GPU Benchmarking Cohort Release Notes GPU Bench-marking provides a short bench mark routine at start-up for Graphics Card selection thus, doing away the GPU Table file previously used for initial Graphics Card selection. On my older HP desktop with AMD graphics the bench mark forced a change in card used and that appeared to provide better FPS once logged in. On my alienware laptop bench mark changed to a different card but selected a low graphics setting that I was able to move to a higher setting in preferences. This higher setting persisted after a re log.

– SL Release 3.7.21 Snowstorm Fall Contributions Cohort (still in cohort status) Release Notes

– SL Release 3.7.21 Maintenance Cohort (still in cohort status) Release Notes

– SL Release 3.7.21 Pipelining Enhancements Cohort (still in cohort status) Release Notes
