The Firestorm team released a new version 6.4.13 (63251) of the Firestorm Viewer on Tuesday 16th March 2021. This new release includes new capabilities, fixes and some updates. There is now a new free-aim mouse and focus lock for Depth of Field, new options for 12/24 hour clock with seconds for the viewer clock, new Avatar Rotation Turn Speed option and much more.
Firestorm 6.4.13 (63251) viewer update brings it parity with the Dawa viewer (LL 6.4.12). For a more detailed list of the latest changes see here. The Firestorm team will now try hard to keep quarterly releases on schedule from this point on with roughly 4 updates a year. The Firestorm management team came to an agreement that quarterly release cycles would be the ideal balance.
In three weeks time on 5th April 2021 the old Firestorm version 188.8.131.52052 will be blocked for access to the Second Life grid.
For Photographers: New free-aim mouse and focus lock for Depth of Field. This feature allows Depth of Field focus to follow your mouse pointer & also adds the ability to lock Depth of Field focus in place when your camera view is moved. This makes setting your focal point and framing your photographs much easier.
New object contents quantity counter. When editing an object, the Contents tab will now display how many items (elements) are inside the object.
New options for 12/24 hour clock and seconds display for the viewer clock.
New option to use the legacy, smaller camera floater without camera preset controls, for those of you who didn’t like the new larger camera floater in the last release.
New Avatar Rotation Turn Speed option, which alters the rate at which your avatar responds to turning.
Added an option to filter inventory by permissions: Copy, Modify and Transfer
Added bulk Windlight import
You can now bulk import all your old Windlight XML files to convert them over to EEP settings
