We have been informed that Firestorm team changed again their
policy about OpenSimulator support.
Reading their statements we can only understand that they changed
from having a forgotten, basically dead fork, to just provide a AS IS
They also inform us that AS IS will mean addiction of code just
copied from Linden Labs viewer and removal of other code may include
what they call old protocols.
Firestorm team has the right to do whatever they decide, no
question about that.
Such "AS IS" Firestorm viewer, in the terms currently defined by
them, CAN NOT be accepted as viewer for OpenSimulator/Opensim.
We all hope this is just some misunderstanding/disorientation
facing the real technical difficulties.
But since we can't predict when or what a new release "for opensim,
almost for opensim, or whatever" will be, and knowing that just new BoM
code may cause issues on all version but current dev master...
I must recommended all to NOT UPGRADE TO SUCH VERSIONS, and inform
all your users to no do so, until this situation is clarified.
Ubit, (Leal Duarte)
ps: do not think i did not tried to talk with them, for example about
BoM potential issues and possible fixes, wasted hours just being
ignored.. but details..
