Second Life According to Fredrik Linden at an in-world meeting about two hours ago, there are new social and profile tools coming up for Second Life.

Details of the social tools are scanty thus far, but “in-world location-based status updates” was mentioned – said updates to eventually be exposed through an API (Application Programming Interface). Additionally, the Lab is working on friend-management tools through the portal. There may be other social tools (described as “cool”) in the pipeline.

Those features are currently tentatively scheduled for a multi-stage release this Summer (Northern Hemisphere).

The API for reading and writing Second Life profile data is presently estimated for the latter half of this year.

No transcript of the user-group meeting has been published at the time of writing.
