On the Kirstens Viewer blog, creator KirstenLee Cinquetti announced in a post marked “Sad Farewell” that all plans for upgrading the noted Third party viewer were being shelved, and installers would be removed.
Installers have been removed as they are now very outdated, the sourcecode will of course remain. The website and forums will stay up for as long is required. Also inworld groups will stay active. It is of course entirely your choice as to how long you continue to use the client, however I do stress that it will fall behind with features and it may be wise to seek alternatives in the near future.
The reason for KirstenLee’s decision? His partner was ill, and Kristen now had to work more to support her. So he could no longer work on the viewer.
I would like to wish everyone who has supported the project over the years, a huge hug and many thanks, Jabba, Altair and all the people who have put up with my ranting and raving ... Who knows what the future holds! But for now Kirstens Viewer goes into a deep sleep.
The Kirsten’s viewer became popular among a number of Second Life residents. It is sad to see it go, and it will be missed.
