Virtual Worlds : FireStorm Viewer Team Announce's 64bit Builds for December 2013 Release

By Avatar JayR Cela

    I was reading the FireStorm blog last night and was happy to see that the FS team will be releasing an Open Beta test release before the year is out. Seem's as if The Lab, has been slowing down the show, and FS cant wait. LOL :_)

    LL has a bunch of code from all the stuff they been tossing at the wall the past 8, hmm maybe 12 months or so with an insane amount of semi-specific purposed viewers. Personally I feel this was a good idea, same as I feel the server madness was and is as well. If you pay any attention to LL's recent activities, the pace is gradually starting to wind down. At least on their end. But there is still a lot of work that needs to be done, and the Lab has been slow to release stable code to the TPV's. That makes sense to me.

    Hence Jessica Lyon, project lead had a great post yesterday announcing a new release for both the Win & Lin platforms sometime late December, both 32 & 64x flavors. And get this, both Open Sim and SL. Holy Cow Batwoman !!!! LOL :_) Thats very KOOL ! However these 64 bit versions may be Alpha's, public or otherwise.

    Oh, and yes there is a Mac version planned for early 2014, Yayyy :_)

     I do still care about SecondLife. But not a whole hell of a lot lately though. After this recent gimme,gimme,mine,mine,mine attitude represented in the new TOS agreement that, depending upon the last time you logged in, are required to digitally sign before entering. I don't really care any more, and the whole thing is irrelevant to me. I will keep some sort of presence in SL.  Anyway's here a direct link to Jessica's post.
