I’m Zen Linden, one of the new developers in the Boston office helping to bring you WindLight.
With the release of 1.17, the First Look: WindLight viewer will no longer be compatible with the Grid.
We received a tremendous amount of community response, so a giant thank you to everyone who downloaded it and provided feedback via our Issue Tracker. Now the time has come for us to take it offline, incorporate your feedback, “tighten up the graphics,” and get the sky ready for prime time. A First Look: WindLight binary viewer will be unavailable for a few weeks while we work on it, but shall return in bigger and brighter form.
However, if you’re absolutely itching to see some of the changes we’ve made or just want to peek under the hood, we’re making the the WindLight source code available (in Main Grid compatible form) via our public version control repository. Check out the Open Source Portal and the how-to to obtain the source code and compile it. Please keep in mind that the code is expected to undergo some fairly large changes in the coming weeks.
Thanks again for all your support!
