The Radegast Development Team is proud to announce the immediate availability of Radegast version 2.2.

This release adds support for multiple attachments on the same point, temporary texture uploads, ability to see you own attachments in the object tracker so it is possible to view their content, edit scripts and notecards, etc. It also adds the ability to change the profile and pick pictures and find them in your inventory if already set. Inventory backup can save snapshots and textures in addition to notecards and scripts. There are no changes to the Scene Viewer except for fixes for a couple of crashes.

Version 2.0 has introduced a crash logger and we have received many reports. Thank you for opting to send them! One common problem that we can see is that people forget to install .NET 3.5SP1. So a reminder for Windows users, if Radegast fails to even start, you have probably forgotten to install it. Download and install .NET 3.5SP1 now.

The Radegast Development Team is proud to announce the immediate availability of Radegast version 2.0.

This release brings the 3D Scene Viewer that allows users to see the 3d worlds around them. Most of the object rendering features are implemented and functional, including the support for showing regular prims, sculpies and meshes, but one should keep in mind that this is still very experimental and might cause crashes. Known issues include: not entirely correct avatar rendering, no support for glow or flexible prims. If you do encounter problems please do report them in our issue tracker.

In addition to the Scene Viewer, Radegast 2.0 comes with the support of the new avatar physics wearable type. There is also a crash reporter that will ask you to submit the crash reports should something unexptected happen. We encourage you to submit those reports as they make the future releases of Radegast better.
