Kokua 6.0.0 second release with RLV 2.9.24

Kokua 6.0.0.44291 is now available. This version brings RLV support up to 2.9.24 ( see http://realrestraint.blogspot.com/2018/11/rlv-2924.html for details).

Most of the bugs fixed in this version were reported by Kokua users – so thankyou for taking the time to report issues and helping make things better.

One fix is of particular note. If you have experienced problems with logging in as a cloud with one of skin/eyes/hair/shape missing you should find this version helps considerably. If you have also been using the option on the Kokua Inventory Preferences tab to bypass a LL decloud bugfix you’re recommended to try running for a while with the bypass turned off. Logins may still be slow sometimes but so far in testing I haven’t see a skin-less login.

You can get the new version from https://sourceforge.net/projects/kokua.team-purple.p/files/Kokua-SL/

Kokua 6.0.0 with Animesh

As well as Animesh support, of which more shortly, this version of Kokua brings across a number of usability features from Firestorm.

* Reintroduce the NACL sound explorer (World > Sound Explorer)
* Port over the animation explorer (World > Animation Explorer)
* Bugfix – Turning on Full Res Textures wouldn’t work
* Port over Avatar Complexity score in nametags (Edit > Preferences > General) along with the ‘only if too complex’ and ‘show own complexity’ options
* Port over reporting the latest grid status bulletin in chat at login (Edit > Preferences > Notifications)
* Port over the Money Tracker/Tip Tracker (View > Money Tracker)
* RLV version only: If RLV is active, the Message Of The Day will appear in chat at login as a substitute to it being suppressed on the login progress screens
* Port over the ‘do not hide worldmap after teleport’ option ( Edit > Preferences > Kokua > General)
* Port over Phoenix-style extended hovertips (View > Highlighting & Visibility > Hover Tips > Show More Information)

The major news though is the arrival of Animesh alongside the incrementing of the viewer version to 6.0.0

Release Notes for the LL viewer: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_Release/6.0.0.520636

We haven’t been able to test Animesh so whilst we’ve made every effort to make the port into Kokua accurate some bugs may be present. If you see any strange behaviour please check it against the LL viewer and then either raise a Jira ticket on the LL viewer or one against Kokua at: https://sourceforge.net/p/team-purple/kokua/tickets/
