The grid's down for maintenance. Gee, it would be a great time to try out the beta client and check out those spiffy sculpted prims!
Well... the beta client I was able to download before immediately barfs when it tries to display my surroundings. "Take off your flexi prims," people said... but if you die immediately, how do you have the time to do that?
Good news! There's a new beta out, and it may solve that problem... but if you go looking for the Linux version, you can't find it.
What's going on here?
UPDATE: there is a beta version for download for Linux now. Alas, it's a version behind that available for Windows or Macintosh.
UPDATE: 188.8.131.52 is now available for Windows and Macintosh. The beta avaiable for Linux is still 184.108.40.206, three days after we were promised 220.127.116.11.
There's a thread about 18.104.22.168 saying that voice for Linux will have to wait until Vivox writes a client for Linux. I hope that the beta for Linux isn't being held up by the issue of voice; there are a LOT of other changes worth testing.
