Server Side Appearance (SSA) Rolls grid wide starting Tuesday!
Linden Lab will begin updating main channel regions with SSA starting Tuesday morning, and this will progress throughout the day. Then on Wednesday the remaining regions will also update with SSA. By Wednesday night Server Side Appearance will be grid wide.

Don’t know what SSA is?
In layman’s terms, LL is improving the way avatars render and, if you are not on a viewer that supports it (SSA), you will be gray to others and they will be gray to you. Our latest Firestorm release 4.4.2 supports SSA, get on it!
Seeing gray people?
Rough estimates suggest there are about 70,000 users still on various viewers that do not support this new code! If you are one of those people, starting Tuesday you will see more and more gray people, and make no mistake… you will be gray to them as well.
No support for gray people!
Please… do not come asking for support because you are gray. With all the efforts we have made, LL has made and the Blogosphere has made to inform users of this upcoming change going back months, there should be no excuse for you to not have known this was coming. Anyone not on a SSA viewer is there by choice and you are on your own. On the bright side, you’ll save money on clothing since no one will see them on you anyway.
Supported Firestorm Versions are…
Currently Firestorm 4.4.0 partially supports SSA and Firestorm 4.4.2 fully supports SSA. Those are the only two versions we provide support for now. Get yourself on Firestorm 4.4.2 first, and if you are still having problems THEN come for help.
Please update to a Server Side Appearance capable viewer now!
