Eye on the Blog: Project Shinning Complete, Gift Birthday Avatar

Earlier this week, Linden Lab stated in it's blog that Project Shinning, after almost two years since it was first announced, was finally complete.

Now gridwide, the Sunshine V2 Viewer offers even more stability and other performance improvements. The work includes better retry logic, removes old client-side baking framework, and an assortment of appearance related bug fixes. Another big feature that debuts with this update is the viewer support for AISV3. The bulk of the work was inventory-related, which not only sped up inventory operations but also greatly reduced the failure rate when performing outfit changes! So if you happen to notice quicker avatar renderings, faster scene loading, seamless region crossing, or just better overall router stability, these are all objectives of Project Shining.

Earlier this month was some news related to the Second Life Eleventh Birthday. Linden Lab would be offering a free robot avatar for all residents, available in Bay City, or in Marketplace.

This robot is sleek and ready to explore the landscapes of Second Life. Made with Fitted Mesh, you can put your own stamp on this android by playing with some of the shape sliders. Just make sure you’re upgraded to a Viewer with Fitted Mesh enabled. There are two ways to get your robot - pick it up inworld at Hairy Hippo Fun Land in Bay City or just visit the Marketplace.
