New Genesis Release 1.6.799

We very much hope that our current Genesis testers
will continue to use the Nightly Builds. It is thanks to their testing that we can find and fix issues quickly. Those on the Nightly build will always get features and fixes quicker than the Releases.  This release build is identical to the Nightly build of the same number.

Genesis Viewer, SIXTH Release 1.6.799

Changes since Release: 1.5.764


- Estate Menu : Ban The Bots facility  Estate setting, tick box for "must not be a scripted agent" (defaults to false).  To ban bots except your own, add your bots to the Estate Access list.

- Search in Preferences.  Enter a keyword in preferences and relevant option tabs contained your word will highlight.  So handy, this is the main reason for this release. 

- Added Bounding Boxes to Preferences > Genesis > Adv. Features

- Added Hit Boxes for combat  > Genesis > Adv. Features (also Alt+Shift+B)

- Play Bento Animation on idle when no AO active. No more splayed fingers.  Prefs > Genesis > Adv. Settings.

- Added "Turn Around Speed" setting for combat gamers in Prefs > Genesis > Adv. Settings. It sets the speed that your avatar turns direction.


- Updated language packs: German, French, Italian, Portuguese. 

- Play Bento anim on idle, Debug set to True.


- Hit boxes are no longer drawn around your own avatar to avoid them appearing in mouse-look.

- Console Window and Debug Console setting no longer persists to next session, thus ending the problem where a user turns it on and doesn't know how to turn it off again.  Re-log will now 'fix it'.

- Fixed Inherited Bug:  Object Edit "Ruler" world/local/reference drop-down arrow now changes between the options. Previously you needed to click the word itself (not the arrow).

- Repaired XML alignments for language packs so text is not longer than space provided in floaters.
