Second Life Update – November 2011

What’s new?

On November 8th, there was the launch of a new Second Life Viewer. With this release Second Life Residents are given more options to customize their user interface, increased usability and a new communication tool.

Now you can manage your screen real estate with drag-n-drop buttons using one, two, or three toolbars. These toolbars are docked along the bottom, left and right sides of the UI. Their icons and labels can be toggled freely.

The new Viewer also boasts combined basic and advanced functions in a way that is easier for new Residents to familiarize themselves.  It does this by merging Basic and Advanced modes, breaking users free of having to switch between modes like before.

Additionally, you can send and receive direct messages via a profile inbox. This grants another way for Residents to stay communicated and you don’t have to be logged into Second Life to take advantage of it.

This has to be one of the best Viewer releases to date and it should deliver a great first impression to new Second Life Residents.

Have you upgraded to the latest Viewer? What are your thoughts?
