Viewer 2.0

Post by Tateru Nino » Wed Feb 24, 2010 2:10 am

Viewer 2.0 is now in public beta as you're all probably aware by now.

We've not been given an exact date, but we expect it will be between two weeks and five weeks (and no more than that) before all newbies are entering SL with the new viewer.

When that day comes, every texture, notecard, class, handout or whatever that refers to the old user-interface/viewer will just confuse new users. Whether we like the new viewer or not isn't really an issue. It's what the newbies will be using, from the day it goes live in production, and we have to find some way of making sure that we're supporting the users not confusing them.

That's a whole lot of material to change. This is just a heads-up to let you know that we're working on deciding how to approach the mammoth task of reviewing and updating all our material within the narrow time window -- before it becomes critical to new users.
