- Adjusted ObjectMeshDetail LOD max to 8 as it was in past versions.

- On macOS the system font Menlo is now used as the fixed size font.

What's FIXED:

- Multiple chances to OpenGL configuration and memory management have improved stability to most scenes with ambient occlusion or shadows turned on when running on macOS 10.11 or 10.12.

KNOWN ISSUES:

- Pie menu "Sit here" response ignores llSetSitText(string)- Ticket #440

- Enabling shadows will reset the GPU on macOS systems in scenes with a moderate to large amount of mesh.

- Mesh deformation of feet with Kokua and RLV when using Utilizatior Mesh Avatar - Ticket #332

- Linux CEF fails when used on some linux distributions. - Ticket #389

- Linux has the ability to use VLC plugins but it is not implemented. Tried and true gstreamer is set in mime_types_linux.xml. Experimenters may switch from gstreamer to libvlc.
