There are two reasons we are pushing a public beta out so soon after our 908 release.
1/ We’ve been spending a lot of effort and time trying to determine the instability issues which were/are present in our 908 viewer update for some residents. We think we have narrowed down the causes but need to test it on a larger scale than our QA team can provide. With more users on this beta, we’ll have a better idea in a week or two if we have identified the stability issues. If you have stability or performance issues on 908, we would highly encourage you to try running this beta for a few weeks or longer.
2/ We wanted to get the Media Filter feature out to the public sooner rather than later. This Public beta has the Media filter and you can read the documentation here http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=media_filter. While the filter is still not yet 100% complete, it is fully functional for it’s purpose which is to give you the ability to control the connections the viewer makes to the Internet. This feature is ON by default.
NOTE: This build will clear your cache before logging in for the first time. This is to ensure you don’t have texture cache corruption issues.
Aside from the above, below is a short list of some of the other changes we’ve made since 908.
