Kokua- Released

Release brings Kokua to parity with Second Life version and Marine Kelley’s RLV version 2.9.16.

If a test version is currently installed, the automatic update feature will not function. A separate download and install is needed. Thanks to all our testers. You provide additional eyes on during the development process.


Added implementation of exportable inventory item parameter for OpenSim grids.

Added an inventory filter for transferable items is an inventory tool to aid in management of alts. For example, you have a main avatar that has 10,000’s of items you have accumulated. You also have alts that typically have fewer items. This filter allows focus on only the items you are free to transfer. Transferable check box is in the Inventory Filters floater. The Transferable filter does not persist through a re-log as it could be a source of inventory loss panic if it was turned on and forgotten.

Added Do not let me fly to Preferencs->Kokua and a corresponding menu item in Commands.
The use case is for combat and games on a Flying region and inadvertent fly causes a pause in action to halt flying and return to game action. While the feature of not flying with page up is present it doesn’t disable to ‘Home’ key pad key. Some users desire to use the key pad with number lock off since those keys are larger.

Linux and Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF):
Contributions by Drakeo of Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) libraries moved Kokua to this new media plugin much quicker than would been possible without his contributions. Drakeo tells me he had significant development collaboration from Firestorms’s NickyD and CoolVL’s Henri. Thank You! Drakeo’s development focus is media and providing Slackware viewer packages. Upstream CEF frequently issues security updates and Drakeo puts those into his own Slackware packaged viewers and contributes updates to Kokua. These security updates from CEF come more often than the Kokua release cycle, however, our Test viewers can be used to maintain a level of currency. Please remember that Linux viewers are Alpha and that is even more the case now that we no longer have the benefit of Linden Lab’s Quality Assurance run through of new features added to Linux viewers. We do our best to provide stable linux viewers, but with the vast number of linux distributions problems will occur that may not have timely solutions.

It has been 3 and 1/2 months since our last release. There has been a lot of under to hood changes. If interested see CHANGELOG.txt and Release Notes which are linked below.

For a complete list of changes please see the change log. Change log

Please refer to ticket system has a vote for individual tickets. I would like to use this to determine which is most needed for bugs and which is most desired for features. Also, there is an accumulation of old tickets that need review. If you submitted a ticket under the old Redmine system, those were copied to the ticket system and need review for relevance.

    I can’t change my shape. Only if everything is in one folder, then it changes. But I can’t just click and wear a shape. Tried with RLV on and off, removed everything to install, still does not work. Some places the mouse wheel does not work, need to grab the side bar to move through list.

    I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that you provide a Linux Version. Thank you so much! I love you:) I just downloaded the 64bit Linux Kokua and it is working fine so far on Linux Mint 17.3. Regarding CEF, I tried loading a website via shared media and it loads very fast. For the first time in my Second Life I am even able to watch video on a prim. Youtube works fine. Also Webprofiles load in my profile window. Geat work, guys!!!

    Is this a wear from Inventory or Appearance?

  4. Teagan

    Its from Inventory.

  5. NickyP

    I cannot get this to reproduce on windows with rlv enabled. Please remember you wear a body part and the wear functions to replace it.

  6. Teagan

    At first I did not do a cold install. Then I deleted everything and installed after I found the problem. Any item you need to wear will not “install” with RLV off (skin, eyes, shape, eyebrows{not tattoo}). But yes, I see now it works correctly with RLV on, I have never used RLV but I will keep it on now. Thank you for all your hard work, I really like Kokua. (using windows-7)

    RLV has been updated a few days later to

  8. NickyP

    RLV is merged in our most recent 4.0.2 test viewers https://sourceforge.net/projects/kokua.team-purple.p/files/Kokua-4.0.2/
    Those at the top of the list have RLV plus other fixes and enhancements.

    Is not a question of rlv. Kokua don’t load Suitcase folder, if you are wearing something inside this folder obvious this don’t load.
