Kokua Release 5.1.9
October 10th, 2018 by chorazinallen
This release brings Kokua to parity with LL version 5.1.9, see Release Notes/Second Life Release/5.1.9.519298 - Second Life Wiki

This LL release has a bug where group notice attachments are not accessible at login. The workround is to access the notice via the group’s notice history.

In addition, the RLV version is updated to RLV 2.9.23.2, see Marine's: RLV 2.9.23.2

Linux users should take note of these two points:-

”’Ticket #504 Web Browser fails with media type for: text/html on Linux 5.1.3.43237”’

Kokua viewer / tickets / #504 Web Browser fails with media type for: text/html on Linux 5.1.3.43237

The desired goal was to provide a LindenLab dullahan solution. That goal was not met. Process “dullahan_host” would not spawn correctly. We have returned to Chromium Embedded Framework (cef) using a previously working the solution. If someone wants to try to get dullahan_host working we can provide work in progress code.

”’Ticket #506 No readable font in upload dialogs”’

Kokua viewer / tickets / #506 No readable font in upload dialogs

Since Kokua’s inception there have been several shared libraries for font handling that change and/or revert with linux distribution releases. Kokua’s team provides as built shared libraries so that users could choose to use system libraries when the as built libraries presented problems. Most commonly users would delete the as built libraries from Kokua’s lib64 directory and use distribution provided libraries. New releases of Kokua will no longer be delivered with as built libraries. We presently build Kokua with Ubuntu-16.04 and have test results from Ubuntu variants through 18.04 with no as built libraries. Going forward, distribution library incompatibility should be reported through Kokua Tickets.

Although a week old, here's the latest Kokua Viewer update:


Kokua 6.0.0 with Animesh
November 18th, 2018 by chorazinallen

As well as Animesh support, of which more shortly, this version of Kokua brings across a number of usability features from Firestorm.

* Reintroduce the NACL sound explorer (World > Sound Explorer)
* Port over the animation explorer (World > Animation Explorer)
* Bugfix – Turning on Full Res Textures wouldn’t work
* Port over Avatar Complexity score in nametags (Edit > Preferences > General) along with the ‘only if too complex’ and ‘show own complexity’ options
* Port over reporting the latest grid status bulletin in chat at login (Edit > Preferences > Notifications)
* Port over the Money Tracker/Tip Tracker (View > Money Tracker)
* RLV version only: If RLV is active, the Message Of The Day will appear in chat at login as a substitute to it being suppressed on the login progress screens
* Port over the ‘do not hide worldmap after teleport’ option ( Edit > Preferences > Kokua > General)
* Port over Phoenix-style extended hovertips (View > Highlighting & Visibility > Hover Tips > Show More Information)

The major news though is the arrival of Animesh alongside the incrementing of the viewer version to 6.0.0

Introduction to Animesh: Animesh officially released for Second Life

Release Notes for the LL viewer: Release Notes/Second Life Release/6.0.0.520636 - Second Life Wiki

We haven’t been able to test Animesh so whilst we’ve made every effort to make the port into Kokua accurate some bugs may be present. If you see any strange behaviour please check it against the LL viewer and then either raise a Jira ticket on the LL viewer or one against Kokua at: Kokua viewer / tickets

As ever, our primary downloads are from Kokua viewer - Browse /Kokua-SL at SourceForge.net

Kokua Release 6.0.1.44374 (RLV) and 6.0.1.44375 (NORLV)

December 14th, 2018 by chorazinallen

This release includes LL Viewer 6.0.1. Details: Release Notes/Second Life Release/6.0.1.522263 - Second Life Wiki

The RLV version also includes RLV 2.9.24.1. Details: Marine's: RLV 2.9.24.1

Note that the fast-sun bug mentioned is not fully fixed in this version.

This version also introduces a revised menu structure for the login and viewer main menus which is much closer to the current LL design. If you wish to use the new menu structure go to the Advanced Menu and turn off ‘Classic Kokua Menus’. The viewer must be restarted to apply the change.

If you want to know where commands have moved to in the revised menu structure see: Advance Warning : Main menu changes coming

Kokua 6.0.1.44454 – RLV OOC chat handling fixed

December 17th, 2018 by chorazinallen
This release of Kokua restores the OOC (Out Of Character) message functionality that was broken in 6.0.1.44374 following the RLV 2.9.24.1 merge.
We have chosen to implement this in a way which not only supports the new behaviour of RLV 2.9.24.1 where OOC chat is routed to objects that are receiving redirected chat but can also support the traditional style of OOC chat where the viewer routes it directly to local chat itself.
The switches to control this are located on Kokua/General in the Preferences window.
The first switch “Allow OOC chat using (( )) (Needs restart)” must be turned on to permit OOC chat. If this is turned off any OOC chat will appear as … in local chat even if no other chat restrictions are in effect.
When OOC chat is allowed by the first switch the second switch called “Send OOC chat to redirected chat rather than local chat” comes into play. When turned on Kokua will follow the RLV 2.9.24.1 behaviour of routing OOC chat to redirected chat handlers and it will not appear in local chat. When the setting is off the original behaviour applies instead with the OOC chat appearing in local chat only and not being sent to redirected chat handlers.
This behaviour is slightly different to RLV 2.9.24.1 itself. There OOC chat now always goes to redirected chat handlers and it cannot be disabled in the viewer – it’s up to the receiving objects/scripts what to do with it. With Kokua there is still a master switch in the viewer which can enable or disable OOC chat along with the secondary switch that controls its routing.
Our apologies for the problem – this was a classic case of not thinking about a one line change deeply enough whilst merging RLV 2.9.24.1 with Kokua.
