The Second Life viewer and servers have added a feature for group chat, providing recent message history.
Have you ever logged into Second Life and your group chat opens with the punchline of a joke? Now you’ll be able to read back and see what it was. The chat servers save messages from the last hour, so you won’t miss what’s happening.
A viewer update is required to use this new feature, and will be part of a future release (headed to Maintenance-R soon - watch release notes here).
The viewer code is available now in our public repo - explore here: https://github.com/secondlife/viewer/tree/DRTVWR-573-maint-R
We look forward to your feedback or any issues with this new feature.
