Not sure which forum a discussion of TPVs should be in, so feel free to move this.

Both Phoenix and Imprudence have released new versions of their viewers. Imprudence's is their latest experimental and Phoenix's is their lates beta. I've been using the new Imprudence experimental since yesterday. They've fixed the media and music bugs. I was using it yesterday, TPing, Searching, grid hopping, building and such. Worse problem I found was having to re-enter the key words after closign and re-opening Search. I haven't tried Phoenix yet, but they've included a new media filter.

Phoenix here: http://www.phoenixviewer.com/

Imprudence here: http://blog.kokuaviewer.org/

Those links will take you to the pages that detail the changes made.

Thank you. Do they have the new Media Filter included? I'm using Dolphin Viewer 1 and Dolphin Viewer 2 because it has that feature. If Impudence has it then I will go back to using Imprudence.

Yes, Phoenix has the media filter in place. I was running around SL a bit yesterday. Still seems to be the same Phoenix otherwise.

I downloaded the new release of Firestorm.. but miss the removed features(Slide out Folders) had to be removed due to the LL shared user experience policy.

Are you still using Phoenix?

You replied to a TEN YEAR OLD THREAD.  Nothing there is relevant.  The "shared user experience" also seems to be somewhat irrelevant these days .

too many "also"s.

Thoughts that went through my head...

Darkthief....that's an name I haven't seen 'round here before.

Phoenix, isn't that a predecessor of Firestorm unless they're calling their latest update that...  Like how the SL viewer updates are named after alcoholic drinks.

Imprudence is not in the TPV directory...

*looks at timestamp of OP*

oh.....

Well now, the very first thread I'd certainly say should have been closed.

Attempting to use Phoenix to connect to Second Life would be quite pointless these days.

1st I would like to hear Henry's thoughts on the matter after all these years if he is still involved in SL as Henry or Equivalent

2nd You never know they might still use it depending on the PC and Hardware

3rd Glads it is open as it marks around the time SL development stopped on the linden side with  the community trying to push forward on the viewer side(Yes a timeline can be shown)

"Nothing there is relevant." to you perhaps.

No one speaks for current or past viewer developers but them so we have no idea how stagnating the "shared user experience" has been. I know every time the Black Dragon Developer has tried to offer features the lab has just shut him down.

Right now Linden Lab is on Auto Pilot.

I think a large group needs to get together and petition the New Owners with facts and ideas and sidestep the management in the ivory tower.

I also believe the shared user experience should end.  a return to direct community drive to add new features to SL. (Yes i know Whirly might pop in telling me how its good)

  1. A PM would have sufficed for that.
  2. No one is going to be using Phoenix to connect to Second Life - it is so badly outdated at this point that almost nothing whatsoever would function.
  3. That is your opinion.

And that's about all that needs to be said here.

1st  Imprudence changed and became another viewer that is on the list.

Yes the Ashes of Emerald became Phoenix and Firestorm replaced it. while retaining a "Phoenix Mode" so users got the best of both viewers.

I was responding to this.  

They are based on the same login protocols of that time (same binary code open sourced by lab)...so no difference would have been made logging in... that's what i was thinking🙂

Firestorm/Phoenix only allows the 3 newest viewers.  All others are blocked.

The Phoenix Firestorm Project is currently active in developing the Firestorm Viewer, the successor to the now discontinued Phoenix Viewer.

They added code later on to viewers to do that as part of there system for whatever reason (Firestorm Team Did)..older viewers only the lab can block them server side.

Viewers older then when Firestorm started doing that they cannot block ..only the lab server side. and anyone can edit the current viewer by changing a few flags in the files(if anyone needed to?) to never get blocked.

Phoenix was blocked years ago. It can't connect.

And someone in this thread doesn't know anything about PH or FS. It isn't me.
