Just a short note, as my Internet service is more down than up right at the moment, but Linden Lab says that the viewer code for the new Mesh features will be made public right about the time that the Mesh features go open beta.

The idea was to get the impression about which of the then-thirteen viewers on the Second Life viewer directory respondents believed to be in full compliance with Linden Lab’s third party viewer policies, and which were not believed to be in full compliance. Viewers can, of course, be present on the directory without any genuine attempts at policy compliance.

It’s a tricky sort of thing to score, and more sophisticated polling software than what I’ve been using might have made the job a good deal easier and provided better results. Nevertheless, the results appear consistent.
