Here’s the text of the announcement from Oz Linden:

We have completed our latest build for 3.0.0 (238157) and it’s available for download here:


We’d love to have you try it out – doing the things you normally do in Second Life and provide us with feedback.  Once you’ve had a chance to try this out, this build will become the next release into our beta channel.  We have created a meta issue in jira for you to attach any bug you find https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-26648.  In addition, if you should discover a mesh issue, VWR bug creation now has a Mesh component available.   Some important facts about this viewer:

  • Mesh support. This build will allow you to upload and see meshes on supported regions of aditi and agni (previous viewers will show meshes as prims).
  • Currently regions in the magnum and “Secondlife RC Mesh” channels have mesh support.
  • On supported regions where you have build permissions, mesh upload can be accessed via the Build->Upload->Model… option. A L$ fee will be charged for uploads, with the size of the fee determined by the complexity of the model.
  • Your account must be mesh enabled before uploading; the requirements for this are that your account has payment info on file, and that you have completed a questionnaire related to intellectual property issues as they apply to mesh. If you are not yet mesh enabled, the model upload dialog will provide a link to the questionnaire.
  • See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Mesh for more information about mesh.

Thank you for your interest in making our viewer experience better.  If you have any questions, please feel free to either post them in our Mesh Forums   or join us at our office hours http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Content_Creation,_Mesh_Import,_Scripting_User_Group.

Considering how troublesome the last couple of viewers have been, this seems a little premature to me, but there you have it.
