CtrlAltStudio Viewer Updated to Firestorm 4.6.7: 1.2.3.42797 Alpha

UPDATE: I’ve promoted this to be the recommended alpha release for Windows.

This alpha release of the CtrlAltStudio Viewer updates to the Firestorm 4.6.7 codebase and is available for people to try out. Notably, this update includes Linden Lab’s Project Interesting code, which should make loading world content significantly faster. Details of this and other changes and known issues can be found in the Firestorm release notes.

This alpha also fixes a crash some people experienced with the preceding 1.2.3.42796 Alpha.

Please note that this alpha still does not work with Rift direct mode and Advanced Lighting Model needs to be turned on. It is built using the 0.4.4 Rift SDK.

Viewer download:

  • Windows installer: 1.2.3.42797 Alpha, 18 Mar 2015.
  • Mac OSX installer: Not available at present.
