Catznip R8.1 (2013-07-09)

Known Issues
  • OSX : Initial beta release. Please report all issues on the Catznip JIRA.
  • OSX : No Havok support. No pathfinding navmesh or mesh upload (using / wearing mesh unaffected).
  • Linux : In world audio may lag several seconds. Workaround is to edit the Catznip launcher script and comment out the LL_BAD_OPENAL_DRIVER line, this breaks streaming audio (fixed next release).
  • Windows 8.1 : ATI/AMD Graphics card users should NOT update to Windows 8.1 at this time, the display drivers are incompatible with newer SL viewers.
  • Windows 8.1 : Popup message about '...dynamic link library C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\dbgeng.dll'. Potential fix.
  • All : Crash on encountering some fitted mesh (fixed next release).

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

Known Issues
