Second Life Maintenance: Margarita ( Viewer Promoted to Release

Recommended Posts


We’re happy to say the Maintenance: Margarita viewer has been promoted from RC to default release today.  You can always get the latest stable release from get.secondlife.com.


Some highlights of this release …


Maintenance: Margarita is like a blender full of ice and goodness.

Shaker of assorted bugfixes:

  • Various weird regressions fixed when the install path is unicode

  • UI fix to not make it seem like anyone can change estate access settings (no one could, but the viewer didn’t reflect that.)

  • Crash fixes (Accordion tab in outfits, Changing outfits - thanks Cinder!, Saving snapshot, saving texture to desktop or inventory - thanks Sovereign Engineer!, Highlighting an item with SLURL, unpackVolumeFaces and other memory allocation, receiving unrecognized messages)

  • More crash fixes for your crash fixes

  • UI fix to sync right-click menus in Conversations

  • Fix for keyboard focus

  • Fix for freezing in About Second Life

  • Fix for slurl appearing instead of avatar name in chat.

  • URLs in group name won’t be clickable anymore.

  • You can Spin and Lift your objects all at the same time now!

  • Annoying selection bug in Group abilities is fixed now.

  • Teleport routing override via “Create Landmark” had been broken by recent changes, and we unbroke it now. Didn’t know this was a thing? That’s why you should read release notes!

Other concoctions to help you hang on:

  • Permission request notification is now sticking around until you take action on it.

  • When your disk was too full to save a snapshot, we would save an empty one. Now we tell you that your disk is full and you need to clean up.

  • Images were showing improper proportions when unconstrained. Proprietary restored.

  • Images opened from inventory would sometimes not load completely. That’s silly and fixed.

  • Updated viewer login failure message with more accurate info on contacting support.

  • Localization update

Changes to make sure getting Wasted away is intentional:

  • Fix for number of items in Trash calculation

  • Trash is full floater wasn’t showing in some conditions when it should have been. It will do as it should now.

  • Fix for when Trash version gets out of synch

  • A delete warning will now show up once every session to cut down on accidents

  • Trash purge message will include number of items deleted

  • Added a warning when deleting filtered content - thanks Kitty Barnett!


You can go on to read the full release notes with a list of all fixed issues.


A list of all Release Candidates and other viewer projects in the works is on the wiki.  Of course, as always, we welcome your bug reports in Jira!

Google names it's releases after sweet treats.

Ubuntu names it's releases after animals.

Debian names it's releases after the characters from Toy Story 

But over all I have to urge the Lab to take up more tasty drinks.
