Radegast 2.24 Release
Greetings and salutations,
I are pleased to present to you Radegast-ng 2.24 which comes with it several updates and fixes by myself and nooperation. First and foremost, this release comes with a tarball that can be used on non-Windows platforms, i.e. Linux! I have not tested it on Linux, but it would be lovely if you would, and if you find any issues with it, we love hearing about those bugs over on our Issue Tracker. I’ve tried to keep bug reporting requirements to a minimum, this ain’t no JIRA, but the more detailed information you can give the easier it makes fixing it.
So Linux, good yes, make sure you have a recent version of mono installed 4.6.x or newer and the latest patchset, please! MacOS, well… it will run if you put a lot of effort into configuring Mono and Xquartz to properly handle WinForms. This is probably well over your head, but WinForms is poorly supported on MacOS. Stay tuned! I haven’t forgotten about you, I’m a Mac user myself, but some things take a lot more time than others to fix.
We’ve added a few requests in this release as well. There is now a small ‘pop’ sound when a blue box notification opens. This is good news for our visually-impaired friends as they now get the notification. The plugins manager has been completely refactored by nooperation. You will probably not notice any difference here, but it is a good thing. Yes, indeed! nooperation also brings us the ability to trigger gestures from nearby chat. No more digging through inventory to manually activate them, you can do it just as you would on the Linden client. Huzzah, and finally, this version brings us up to date with multilayer wearables. Introduced in 2008, this allowed Second Lifers the ability to wear multiple layers of shirts, jackets, pants, and all without replacing the currently worn articles. Layer up those alphas and jackets, fashionistas! Your time has come!
We truly hope you enjoy this release, and just to reiterate, if you find any issues or need help, you can file those bugs and help requests on our Issue Tracker, and get help from fellow users inworld in the Radegast group.
