Catznip R5 (2012-11-02)

Roughly based on Linden sources 3.2.7 ish .. more or less .. touch some wood. R5 adds a couple of brand new things, fixes some rather important bugs and makes you hungry. Be gentle with it, like a swedish lady. Future bugs & feature requests can be posted on our Catznip JIRA. Highlights

  • Script Recovery : Never loose a script you were working on because the viewer crashed or you got logged out. works with all scripts, everywhere. Open scripts are auto-saved locally every 60 seconds. In event of viewer crash, scripts are presented to the user and optionally recovered to lost & found folder.
  • Chat : A big push with some our chat overhaul features.
  • Eject from Group : Option on the group participant context menu to eject someone from a group, remove unwanted members without needing to open the group floater and search.
  • Inline Spell Checker : As part of the work required for submitting the Catznip Spell Checker to Linden Lab for inclusion in the official client it has been rewritten from scratch. On the way a LOT of refinements and bug fixes.

Script Recovery

Never loose a script you were working on because the viewer crashed or you got logged out. works with all scripts, everywhere.

  • added : Open scripts are auto-saved locally every 60 seconds. In event of viewer crash, scripts are presented to the user and optionally recovered to lost & found folder.
    • backup copy is only saved when the editor isn’t pristine
    • backup copy is removed when the asset was successfully uploaded, or when the floater is closed

Chat Enhancements

A big push with some our chat overhaul features.

  • added : allow resizing of the multi-line nearby chat bar (hover the mouse between the chat history and chat bar)
  • added : context menu for the nearby chat floater (allows changing the chat font size and the nearby chat bar type)

  • fixed : “Nearby Chat” tab in the conversations floater isn’t removed when toggling ‘NearbyChatFloaterBarType’ or ‘NearbyChatFloaterWindow’

Status Bar

Cleaned up and tightened top status bar, especially useful if you prefer a minimalistic UI or just run the viewer with limited screen real estate (like on Kitty’s fancy ION netbook. Funny .. I’ve had a netbook 2 years now, but the moment Kitty gets one it’s suddenly important .. mutter mutter mumble).

  • added : “Show Buy Currency Button” and “Show Marketplace Button” context menu items to selectively show/hide those buttons on the status bar
  • changed : mini-location bar dynamically resizes when the menu bar or status bar sizes change
  • changed : rearranged the mini-location bar
    • removed the info button
    • show the maturity rating as an icon rather than part of the parcel text
    • reformat the parcel text to “Region (Coordinates) – Parcel”
    • coordinates and properties are always visible, regardless of navigation bar options

Inline Spell Checker

  • added : ‘Second Life glossary’ dictionary (enabled by default)
  • fixed : overwriting existing text won’t trigger a new spell check
  • fixed : opening an existing modifiable notecard doesn’t always show existing misspellings
  • fixed : scrolling through a notecard can hide all misspellings
  • fixed : squiggly lines aren’t centered on the misspelled word (fixed for LLTextEditor)

RLVa & SharedWear

RLVa 512.png

Aside from some pretty major FUI related bug fixes to RLVa, the big change here is SharedWear being on by default. SharedWear means that items placed inside a #RLV Folder do not need to be placed in attachment point named folders.

  • changed : flipped “RLVaEnableSharedWear” on by default
  • fixed : disabling a toolbar button doesn’t block the button’s commit signal
  • fixed : LLFloaterReg::toggleInstanceOrBringToFront() bypasses the blocked folder list and the validation signal
  • fixed : region “alerts” aren’t show location or show names filtered
  • fixed : various issues and enhancements relating to @showloc
  • fixed : the RLV API renames “Avatar Center” to “Root”
