Firestorm Update 4.2.2.29837

It’s release time again!…Again! 
Part II. 

For those interested in the back story behind why we had to pull the 4.2.1 release, have a read on Tonya’s latest blog post.  If you installed the 4.2.1 release we recommend you update to this one and we apologize for the inconvenience!

__________________________________________
With this release we bring you Pathfinding documentation, tools and scripting functions in Firestorm, as well as an RLVa 1.4.7 update, more crash fixes, stability and performance improvements and a bunch of new features too!

New in 4.2.2.29837
- Skin improvements to Starlight, Vintage, Metaharper, FS High Contrast and Ansastorm.
- New windlight sky settings, including Ambient Dark, Grey and White and a new Tron Legacy series.
- Added pathfinding LSL functions from Linden Lab.
- Ability to disable group chat on a per-group basis!
- Snapshot uploads to Flickr (thanks to Katharine Berry and Exodus Viewer for that work).
- Temp uploads from snapshot floater.
- Cool new SLurl command line feature!
- New toolbar buttons for ground sit, sound explorer, asset blacklist.
- Our own less intrusive “Rebake terrain” button next to no build/no script/no push icons in menu/nav bar.
- Improved AO handling with other animating inworld objects.
- Ability to join our support group from Help menu.
lots more!

OpenSim specific
- LSL Bridge disabled on OpenSim.
- Grid manager help link and docu on login page.
- Group creation cost corrected.
- Mapto command now working in OSgrid.
- Upload cost amounts corrected.

For complete release notes, including new features, fixes, improvements, changes and known issues please see our change log here:

Please note: As usual we highly recommend performing a clean install.

We may be a little while before our next release since it’s going to require considerable work, like merging to LL’s latest code, Havok, setting up our separate builds for SL/OpenSim, and most importantly… stabilizing all that new stuff.

Enjoy the update!

4.2.1 withdrawn as release

We discovered an ugly bug with our 4.2.1.29803 release and are removing it from downloads.

The bug comes from a fix we inadvertently pulled in from LL, to a fix a bug we don’t yet have, which has created a pretty nasty visual bug with doors, wheels and other things that rotate.

Because of this we are temporarily removing our downloads of 4.2.1 and will have an update of 4.2.2 by the end of the day.

If you are already on 4.2.1.29803, don’t panic, no need to downgrade, your viewer is still safe. The bug makes doors and things ‘look’ broken, but it does not actually break anything, it’s purely visual. However we ask that you update to 4.2.2 once it’s available.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.
