This is a sad day for TPV development because KirstenLee Cinquetti has announced that her viewer will now be discontinued and there will be no more viewer developments. I think many will be shocked by this news and say that it’s understandable I think due to whats happened. I hope the real life situation gets better for them in the near future. I wish the best of luck to Kirsten and Dawny.
Below shows a snapshot showing amazing shadows using Kirstens S17 Shadowdraft version back in 2009. Kirsten’s viewer rocks!

From the blog post:
You may have noticed that the client has not been updated in some time. Sadly Real Life events have taken an unfortunate turn which basically puts an end to any more development.
The Plans for S22 have been shelved and the project has been marked as discontinued.
Installers have been removed as they are now very outdated, the sourcecode will of course remain. The website and forums will stay up for as long is required. Also inworld groups will stay active. It is of course entirely your choice as to how long you continue to use the client, however I do stress that it will fall behind with features and it may be wise to seek alternatives in the near future.
Dawny has been very Ill, and had to stop working. As you can imagine my priority is to support her in any way possible and that means I have to become the main bread winner, as much as I enjoy working on the client it’s obviously the first thing to go.
Not much more to say…
BUT finally I would like to wish everyone who has supported the project over the years, a huge hug and many thanks, Jabba, Altair and all the people who have put up with my ranting and raving and unusual colour choices in UI. 🙂
Who knows what the future holds! But for now Kirstens Viewer goes into a deep sleep.
Presses the Shut Down button, Drives spin down, silence……….
Love to you all, KL
Maybe sometime in the future viewer development will resume but for now “Kirstens Viewer goes into a deep sleep.” 😦
