Kokua and SecondLife Auto Updater

Some of you may have experienced file write errors or several errors when Kokua starts the auto update windows installer. This problem is intermittent. I’m thinking it is a timing issue with writing binary files from the installer. I found that the Retry button in the error message box can be used to obtain a complete install. It may take several Retries to get the installer to complete. Below linked are two Second Life jira issues that document the problem.

Kokua-4.0.1.37934 Released

Release 4.0.1.37934 brings Kokua to parity with Second Life version 4.0.1.310054 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.

Features:

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.

Kokua with RLV 2.9.15 and code update to SecondLife 3.8.6 — Request for test

Kokua with RLV version 2.9.15 merge is available for download and testing. This includes updates to SecondLife version 3.8.6.

This should be a release version but, I want to put that off as there are many LL maintenance changes included. Past experience shows that these types of changes don’t always merge correctly.
Some but not all areas to test:
Inventory handling.
Outfit remove and replace.
Individual wearable items remove from avatar and wear from inventory.
Mesh model upload.
File uploads.

Please review: Testing Best Practices

If there is an issue, try to confirm it with the RLV viewer. If it repeats in RLV file an issue on Marine’s issue tracker.

If it exists only on Kokua file a ticket.

I recommend using the beta grid (aditi) for testing until you have a warm fuzzy about using on agni with your main avatar.

Kokua RLV merge is available for download and testing.

There has not been any RLV testing done other than switching to RLV mode and making sure a log on was possible and that it did not crash. I did walk around and teleported a few times.

Please review: Testing Best Practices

I don’t use RLV so cannot give much support. If there is an issue, try to confirm it with the RLV viewer. If repeats in RLV file an issue on Marine’s issue tracker.

Kokua-3.8.3.38326 Test

Kokua-3.8.3.38326 Test is ready for download and testing. Normally, we don’t announce test viewer availability but, this viewer fixes Experience Profiles for SL users and handles the My Suitcase folder for OpenSim users. The My Suitcase patch was submitted to Kokua and other OpenSim viewer projects by Cinder Roxley. Since this Kokua Test viewer effects potentially more than just a few users I felt the blog announcement appropriate.
