Clear the viewer folder! Clear your cache! Clear your settings if you're coming from pre-2.0.7!
We have [RANDOM_NUMBER] bananas, read them below. ;P
I've implemented several new loadingscreen pictures for viewing pleasure =3 you can see one of them in the "Snapshots" section, they all were taken in 4000x2204 forsuperb quality...just to get downscaled to 1200x661 :P
I've taught my UI some new tricks, it's now possible to set a max width and height via XML in any floater effectively preventing rescaling beyond those values.
I've fixed the "Edit linked" checkbox which was invisible...and renamed it to "Edit linked parts"
I updated SSR for class 1 shader (will be disabled in future anyway, but just in case...) and reduced sun glowyness with SSR on to normal Deferred shiny levels, i also disabled the legacy shiny rendering in SSR (higher shiny = darker texture reflecting a cubemap even in closed rooms, making stuff look like shit)
Misc, regarding Firestorm-hate, my Viewer and all that...:
Donations: some people keep asking about a "Donate" button, there is none do not waste your time searching for it. I dont have one because i feel bad for taking money for something that must stay 100% at any cost. You can however "donate" me L$, given you provide me a good reason ("because its good" doesnt count), a friend also told me about a nice idea. To make my conscience halfway happy i will add anyone donating more than 500L$ to the "Special Thanks" page in Help -> About Nirans Viewer. Everyone who has already donated more than 500L$ will also be added, if you come to me and IM me (best would be with a Transaction ID from the Second Life's website (Transaction History)).
Kickstarter, Crowdfounding & co: Please no. This also isn't something you can just set up and "surprise" me with, i would have to do that on my own, which i wont. The Idea is charming but no, this is just 3 steps too far over the ledge, its nearly the same shit Kirsten did. Im not Kirsten.
Viewer ending: Calm down, i said (i've sworn) that the next "Release" will be the last one. I've never said that Beta's count towards this, i also havn't clearly said when this Release will be. My Viewer has a way too unfinished feel to just drop it as it is right now.
Firestorm-hate: So... why do i hate Firestorm? Why do i use any possible chance to shout them down in the corner they belong to? Several reasons:
Slow progression with a huge Team,
them thinking really bad things about me,
my automatic hate against all un-understandable popular stuff (like Justin Bieber and Tokio Hotel as example)
their fear of their own userbase and all the bad things it causes... bad decisions which can be best described as "handholding" features (in other words the whole back/forporting of V1 shit, general support for V1 and legacy stuff...all that).
The last thing probably resembles 99% of my hate. It throws so many questions at me with lots of ???????. Why did they support V1 for so long? Why are they still "supporting" it by porting V1 shit over to V3? Why do they add so useless features for "not-so-advanced" (well lets just call them dumb, because well most Firestorm/Phoenix users ARE dumb) people to support their "lazyness" and "stupidy"? Why dont they just tell their userbase to STFU and get along with it? Why dont they stop beeing handholding, "dumb" supporting "idiots", wasting their goddamn free time to make them even more "dumb"? Do they fear their userbase? Do they fear them saying "hey why isnt shit like i want, do it nao or we will leave SL/dont use your Viewer anymore"? Why do they waste so much potential?
I mean i really i dont understand why they dont tell those idiots to shut up and get along with it, they're getting a Viewer for FREE and they still complain about it, they are wasting THEIR free time just to waste even MORE free time because such idiots complain about everything. Cant they just arrive in 2013 and drop those idiots? do they really have to play the babysitter and try to make everyone happy? is that really necessary Firestorm?! Y U DO DIS, STOP IT, YOU CRIPPLE AND SLOW DOWN EVOLUTION, YOU DELAY THE FUTURE, YOU DO ALL THIS BECAUSE OF IDIOTS WHO CAN'T GET THEIR DAMN MIND RIGHT TO ACCEPT CHANGE! FUCKING STOP IT!
