Dayturn SL preview for macOS - Preview version of the Dayturn viewer for SecondLife

This is a preview build of the Dayturn viewer that works in SecondLife.
It should be fully compatible with macOS Monterey 12.3, including voice and microphone support.

Even if it is a preview the viewer should be feature complete, and has proved to be stable in testing on both Intel and Apple Silicon Macs.

The viewer provided is both signed and notarized with my Apple Developer ID.

Geir Nøklebye updated Dayturn SL preview for macOS with a new update entry:

Build 48883

More optimizations applied which should yield a frame or two better performance. Otherwise no functional updates since the last version.

Login screen is now localized to German, French and Spanish. Once logged in localization is patchy or missing so expect to see English text in between.

This version is both signed and notarized with my Apple Developer ID.

BUILD 48915

This version has the MFA (multi factor authentication) code added that was released in Second life Viewer version 6.5.5.571282, and announced in the blog.

NOTE: The MFA functionality is untested, except the viewer logs in to Secondlife as expected with an account that does not have MFA activated.

Geir Nøklebye updated Dayturn SL preview for macOS with a new update entry:

Build 48944

The only change in this version is to give the macOS version a little bit more breathing room for handling textures. Depending on what graphics card is installed in your Mac, the limit for graphics memory (VRAM) has been increased from a fixed 512MB, up to 1024GB.

The Texture Memory slider in Preferences->Graphics->Hardware will still be set to 512 as default, but you can drag it higher.

Note that a portion of the VRAM is set aside for storing other elements such as meshes, sounds etc...

Geir Nøklebye updated Dayturn SL preview for macOS with a new update entry:

Build 48970

Highlight for this build is the Enable VSync toggle that can be set from the Preferences->Graphics->Hardware tab.

Turning on VSync (default) will limit frame rate to the frequency your monitor updates. For the majority of monitors that is 60 Hz. The feature is from the upcoming SecondLife Viewer performance update.

Otherwise there are additional optimizations and some functionality tweaks.

Geir Nøklebye updated Dayturn SL preview for macOS with a new update entry:

Build 49011

Highlight for this build is the old system for generating rating LODs (GLOD) when uploading mesh has been replaced by a more updated and sophisticated system; meshoptimizer as released by the latest SecondLife 6.6.0.571939 performance viewer.

NOTE: Because this viewer is not built with the Havok physics library, like the SecondLife viewer, it has limited functionality for generating physics for a mesh. Unless you have made your own physics model, it is recommended you use the...

Build 49026

This build mops up a couple bug fixes to the previous published build in addition to disable/remove some no longer supported features.

Apart from that there are no big upheavals!

The viewer is provided as is. It is both signed and notarized with my Apple Developer ID.

NOTE: If you have the Opensim version of Dayturn installed, you should not install this version, as it will reset your viewer graphics settings and not work in Opensim at all at this...

Build 49097

This build is primarily code cleanup and removal of some functionality that does not translate well for Opensim use or can be used as a griefing vector.

This build has support for joint aliases for mesh uploads and has some bug fixes for the Meshoptimizer applied.

The FMODStudio audio drivers have been updated to version 02.02.07

Build 49132

In the wake of Premium Plus, this build adds the Membership menu item to the Avatar menu, in addition to add My Linden Home menu item and make sure the My Land Holdings menu item works on the World menu.

Otherwise there are only a few adjustments (lots of back and forth with the code as it turns out the LL Performance viewer changes makes this viewer perform worse).
