As announced nearly a month ago (but postponed until after the 1.19.1 release) we are now requiring that residents upgrade viewers to Second Life 1.19 (1.19.0 or 1.19.1). Earlier versions of the Second Life viewer are no longer supported.
The previous post has full details and rationale, including security, support, performance, and advancing the platform.
Residents using older viewers (1.18.5(3), 1.18.4(3), 1.18.3(5), .18.2(1)) will be prompted to update to Second Life 1.19.1 on login. Should issues be encountered running 1.19.1, Residents should read Pastrami Linden’s post on 1.19.1 which includes troubleshooting steps, how to report issues, and links to the older 1.19.0 viewers if required.
This does not affect:
- Third party viewers that follow the Channel and Version Requirements
- The First Look: Dazzle viewer
- Release Candidate viewers (which are currently 1.19.1 anyway)
