Nightly Builds

June 4th, 2023 (internal testing)

Added ability to change FontDPI (Font size in all floaters, Chat, Profiles, Search etc) to Preferences: Genesis.  Please note you must restart the viewer each time for changes to take effect.  Fonts can only be increased in multiples of 8 using 80 as the value:  88, 96, 104 (default), 112, 120. Too large a number will cause certain floaters to invoke tabs, for example  "notes" tab on profiles will scroll if you choose a large value for the font size.  Mileage will vary considerably depending on your screen resolution.

- Fixed text in dialog boxes for very long text. Thought fixed in 828.  Redone.

- Reworked edit floater and fixed Land Impact truncating to 2 digits.

- Fixed: Holes in terrain at the bottom of the sea.  Due to some bizarre inherited hard-coded region configuration.

- Increased password length maximum from 12 to 16 characters (the maximum SL permits).  The 12 character limit was an old OpenSim limit we had overlooked.  Since Genesis does not support OS, the length can now be extended to 16.

- New Snapshot floater is set active.  Debug: GenxSnapshotFloater  True by default.  Set false for old styles floater

May 21st, 2023 (828)

- Fixed font size in dialog so text doesn't disappear behind the user input box. Issue remains on 830.

May 20th, 2023 (826)

- Genesis now supports uploading of 30 second WAV files at 44.1 kHz.

- Laying foundations for the reworking of Area Search.

May 13th, 2023 (824)

- Tweaked Preferences menu to suit new font.

May 8th, 2023 (822)

- New Feature: Ability to show avatar distance from you in name/group hover-text.
Preferences > Genesis > Tags:  Show Avatar Distance.

- New Feature, Snapshot floater rework: Ability to resize snapshot floater for larger or smaller preview. To try this, set Debug: GenxSnapshotFloater to True

- Begin Area Search rework.
- Fixed need to scroll tab profiles to "notes" using new font.

May 8th, 2023 (810)

- Replace default Roboto font with clearer Inter-Font from Google. We could all do with a bit of help seeing things.

- Begin foundation for snapshot window rework

- Begin foundation for ability to see Avatar distance from client via name tag

May 4th, 2023 (808)

- Added tool-tip to hit-boxes so we don't forget the shortcut key we created for it.

- Moved "stop anims" icon on the toolbar. Next to the music slider was not good!

- Began reworking on Area Search.

- Development Team has opted to use American English for the viewer,  Z's instead of S's and no U's in things like colour.   Release notes will probably continue in English English.  This is because the demographic for SL is heavily weighted in USA so we're going to use Englishification, lest you think we can't spell.

April 22nd, 2023 (804)

- Added a stop animation button to UI next to media play/pause

- Fixed: unlimited zoom via camera constraints.
