Catznip R7 (2012-10-23)

Known Issues
  • Warning : This viewer does NOT support server side appearance (SSA / SSB). It will be depreciated and updates will be forced as soon as Linden Lab indicate they intend to enable SSA grid wide.
  • Fixed : Initial release hangs on Ubuntu 12.10 with a fontconfig error. Viewer download updated.

These issues may be resolved in our beta viewer...


This release has been a while in the making and includes a lot of changes and new features.


Brand new derender that is unique among TPV's with both session and persistent removal of objects, removed entries instantly rerez back in-world without requiring a tp'ing away and back or relog.

  • added : basic derender functionality ("Derender" option on the object context and object gear menus). derender will prevent the object from rerezzing.
  • added : derender list floater (also contains the mute list)
  • added : the ability to remove entries from the derender list and have them reappear in-world without requiring a teleport/relog
  • added : persistent derender option ("Block Visually" option on the object context menu)
  • changed : pop-up the "blocked" floater with the entry highlighted when derendering a new object

Mini Map

Overhauled Mini Map (CTRL+SHIFT+M IN the viewer) can now show the world map image as a backround with parcel lines rendered over the top, special parcel flags are also shown (In addition to objects and such). Zoom menu has been redone with sensible settings.

  • added : property line overlay on the minimap
  • added : (optionally) colour collision parcels a transparent red
  • added : (optionally) show for-sale parcels with a yellow highlight on the mini-map, controlled by 'MiniMapForSaleParcels', defaults to off
  • added : "MiniMapObjects" setting to control the rendering of objects on the minimap
  • added : (optionally) use world map tile texture for the mini-map region texture
  • changed : removed title bar from the mini-map + fixed vertical centering of directions
  • changed : mini-map zoom levels for "Close", "Medium" and "Far" options
  • changed : moved zoom options into a "Zoom" sub-menu
  • added : "View Profile" context menu item for singular and context sub-menu for multiple dots on the mini-map
  • added : "Place Profile" menu item to the mini-map context menu
  • fixed : the inspector tooltip stays visible for too long and gets in the way, params should now largely be identical to the legacy tooltips
  • added : user-configurable color setting for the property lines on the mini-map
