SL Mesh, Update 5

Week 18 update from today’s Mesh User Group meeting. I think we are getting closer towards the roll out of mesh on the main grid and hopefully it will arrive this month. Linden Lab have still not given any ETAs on dates yet. With the Viewer 2 release cycle as it stands mesh will arrive in the 2.7 version viewer. We will have to see!
