First OpenSim Community Conference starts this weekend


2 days to go until the first ever OpenSim Community Conference opens officially to the public on the conference grid. Final preparations are underway to make sure everything is working correctly and for the last minute touches to be made. The latest big news this week that there will be a final kick-off load test happening today at 12pm SLT at the Expo Zone regions.

Join the OSCC Load Testers group to access the regions and find out the latest updates. Login Details can be found here. It’s highly recommended that everyone should be using either OSCC Viewer, Kokua, Firestorm, Singularity or another supported viewer with voice and mesh.

The regions open officially at 7am on Saturday 7th September 2013 and it’s expected there will be a high attendance. Here is an updated FULL Conference Schedule showing all presentations, speakers, attendees and sponsors. It’s going to be really good and interesting hopefully.

Lumiya updates version from 2.5.2 to 2.5.4


Last week version 2.5.2 of the Lumiya viewer was released with new features and fixes. Today it appears there is a new version (2.5.4) out available to download on the Google Play Store. Lumiya is one of the best apps for Second Life/OpenSim and everyone should try it out for a one off cost of £1.89.

What’s new in 2.5.4

  • Fixed a problem with Advanced Rendering on PowerVR-based devices;
  • Added an option to resize HUDs;
  • Added support for llTextBox function in scripts;
  • Fixed an issue with avatar shape not being updated after changing outfits,

It works very well on my S3 and Nexus 7 with hardly any lag/issues at all. It only takes up 5.0M and its been installed between 10,000 – 50,000 times since the launch.

  • Have you installed Lumiya yet ?
  • What do you think of the app experience etc ?
  • What features would you like to see in the near future ?
