Kokua:Experimental

From Kokua Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

This page highlights test viewers available of Kokua, the next generation Imprudence client based on Second Life Viewer 2 & 3. Features may come and go from test viewer to test viewer — it does not necessarily mean that a feature is being officially added to or removed from the viewer, just that things are being tested out. These viewers will also tend not to be widely announced or distributed due to their experimental nature. These are alpha viewers (that's before beta), and while we don't know of any game-breaking bugs in them (unless otherwise stated), we still recommend caution when using them. To be absolutely safe, we recommend those wishing to test these viewers use an alt account that does not have valuable items in its inventory, profile etc. Considered yourself warned!

These viewers are provided as a courtesy for those who want to try the bleeding edge ('bleeding' being a key word). These viewers are not considered ready for wide public release and there is no support provided with these viewers. Source code for these viewers is available, though it may take us a little while to get it posted on this page for each version as these are just being thrown up on the wiki here as the code is being finalized, so that it can be tested for bugs.

Please read our Best Practices before testing.

Kokua:Release Notes/3.3.1 Alpha Mac

Release Highlights

The features should equal secondlife viewer but, no mesh upload at present.

Some libraries are missing. Application icon too. No sound.

Developer Notes

Please look for backgound colors other than kokua purple and textual references other than kokua.

OSgrid sandbox or secondlifebeta (aditi) grid recommend for testing as no cost will be incurred for the uploads. Please test with an alt that has no important inventory content, just in case.

Please report issues to Bitbucket.
