OpenSim : HyperGrid : Seems as if the Singularity Viewer is Back Into the Swing of Things

By Avatar JayR Cela :

     My favorite viewer of choice ( at least for building ) is Singularity, second is FireStorm, and I am just dying to get my hands on the newest Alchemy viewer once a Linux version becomes available, Kokua is nice but I seldom use it, CoolVL no comment :_(

    Anyways since sadly Latif Chalifa passed away last year, until recently the development seems to have been dormant, not so now. I am happy to say that the Team Singularity seems to be pushing out a number of new updates on a semi regular basis, for Linux : Mac : Windows,  They just released x86_64- and it is a great Test release, however I still am getting : "packet_out_of_order" error messages on the console with a small amount of grids that I have been trying to join. If you are experiencing the same, my recommendation  is to just use the FireStorm viewer.

    Now the Grids I belong to that are not showing these same errors, Singularity really shines threw  for my purposes, and that is Prim Building, you simply cannot beat it.

    So in closing, if you are a Prim Builder and would like to give the newest test versions of the Singularity viewer a try, you can drop on by the Alpha build(s) page.
