Today I did read a Blogpost on Phoenix Viewer Blog. Looks like there will maybe be a new Phoenix Viewer Release someday. The Phoenix Team wrote it’s sounding lately like LL is starting to take a less aggressive stance towards V1 than what we were initially told nearly a year ago.
They say LL has no immediate plans now to break v1 by turning off server side functionality. But they also note that this is rather an impression and not an official statement from Linden Lab.
There is also not an Date set so its not clear when a next Phoenix Viewer Release will come but hopefully within the next few month. They will probably address some of the performance, stability and mesh related issues the Phoenix users are experiencing on the 1600 release.

Some time ago I made a Skin for Phoenix Viewer and think about creating the same skin for Firestorm now…
Yea it is some time ago when I made a Skin for the Phoenix Viewer and at the moment I think about making a similar Skin for the Firestorm Viewer as well. I am not completely happy with the Skins of the Firestorm Viewer. So lets see. Just my thoughts but I cant promise anything as I already work on cross-projects again. :D
I am not sure how I couldn´t notice that there is this hot alignment tool in my Firestorm Viewer! After going through one of the SLUniverse Threads I found a cool alignment tool and I did wish it would be in one of the Viewers I use. And see there? Aribeth just told me it is there. Damn this is just cool because I usualy used a tool called PrimDocker but it was a Hud I head to wear. PrimDocker was ok and helped me much to align and build fast but the alignment tool of Quarl in the Viewer is much better as I now do not have to wear a Hud anymore and I also do not have to put scripts into prims to align them. I just could freak out so happy I am :D
Thank you Quarl for the great alignment tool you gave us!
There is a latest news on the Firestorm Blog that they release Firestorm with Mesh Support now..
Due topopular demand we’ve decided we can’t hold back the Firestorm with Mesh support release,however this hasn’t been an easy decision. Unfortunately LL Mesh code comeswith a lot of new bugs and undesirable behaviors which we honestly aren’tcomfortable releasing with. Many of these issues we would consider blockersfora release. The issues which we wouldn’t consider blockers simply do not reachour expectations for a quality release. However, you asked for it! And you’regetting it in its current state!
But I suggest you read on the official Firestorm Blog:
Today I found out that Jessica Lyon did upload a Firestorm Preview on YouTube. Take a look here:
Today I did publish The SL Daily Ledger .
So there you will find some top Storys about Second Life which are collected via my favorite Peoples on Twitter.
Sometimes it is just funny to see what peoples type into google. Today I checked out with what kind of search terms, peoples found my blog. One search term I had to think about..
Some one asked Google for “games that use phoenix viewer”.
Hmm. Let me think for a while. :D
I mean I wouldn´t have any problem if I could use Phoenix Viewer with World of Warcraft. Really! Imagine I could build all those raid dungeons or buildings there. Imagine I could change that damn World of Warcraft World to my needs. Wouldn´t be that cool?
However.. I dont want to be unfair. For all peoples who came to my blog to find out what kind of games you can play with Phoenix Viewer.. The real answer is “Second Life” even if I am still not sure if “Second Life” is a game. :)
I hope I could help out at this point. :D
But if you are blogger.. I would be happy if you share you funniest search terms of peoples who found your blog. What kind of funny stuff do you find in your dashboard?
Ok short story here. Today I did install the Mesh Import Project Viewer. Just wanted to check out the Mesh Beta Grid. I thought I play with my own Cinema 4d meshes and import them to the Beta Grid.
I did install the Viewer and I must say after all that I still have to fight with the usability of Viewer 2.x.
If I am true.. I really cant work with this piece of Software, lol. This Viewer is driving me crazy. A real hell.
I better wait until mesh is out of beta and until TPV´s support it as well.
For me it is no fun to work with Viewer 2.x generation. I just can hope that Phoenix Viewer will support it as well, soon as possible after Mesh is out of the beta.
You should hurry up download and install the new The Phoenix Viewer 188.8.131.525. ;)
The day has finally come!
The Phoenix Viewer 184.108.40.2065 is a Release Candidate because we want to be absolutely certain everything is how it should be. We are also aware that there are still a few bugs which need to be worked out and a few more things we want to add to it before we make it a final release. Although we are calling this a release candidate we WILL be providing full support for it and it can be treated as an Official Release.
Just go to the Phoenix Viewer Website and grab your lovely and latest Viewer Version:
I told you in one of my latest Blogpost that I worked on a Phoenix Viewer UI modification.
This UI is called Minimalistic (Blue) and you can download it now direct out of your Phoenix Viewer.
Just open your settings and go to the UI options. Click on “get more” and choose “Minimalistic” and then “Blue” if you want to try that new UI out.
