New Genesis Release 1.7.880

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, SEVENTH Release 1.7.880

Main improvements since: 1.6.799


For a log of all that has transpired from the last version to this version, please see the Nightly build notes listed immediately below this story.


- Substantial rework of internal AO engine.  It now supports multiple configuration settings for different AO's and will remember the last AO setting and persist upon relog.

- New snapshot floater brings Genesis inline with SLV style snapshot previews and refresh.
You can toggle between old and new style.  Debug GenxSnapshorFloater = True / False

-  Ability to change screen font size via a slider in Genesis > Adv. Features.  Default is 104. Setting this to either 96, 104, 112 will give the equivalent of small medium and large.  Mileage will vary because of the multitude of different screen sizes everyone uses.

- Stop Animations, handy one-click to stop now added to the bottom user toolbar next to media options.

- Avatar distance can now be displayed in with the avatar name, group bubble over the avatars head.   Genesis > Tags: Show Avatar distance.


- Viewer now supports the uploading of 30 second WAV files (previously 10 seconds).

- Genesis Viewer now supports long password up to 16 characters, SL grid maximum. (previously 12).

- Changed debug value to display IM in chat console (IMInChatConsole) along with local chat, to False (previously true).  User should have to opt-in to see IM in with local chat (not out).


- Fixed font issues in certain floaters, most notably "build" so land impact and group settings no longer truncate.

- Fixed very long text truncating in blue dialog boxes.

- Fixed seeing holes in terrain caused by archaic inherited hard coded region "assumptions".

- Fixed: there should be no need to scroll Profile tabs to use "notes" when using default size screen font of 104 dpi.

- Fixed: unlimited zoom via camera constraints.
