- 1.17.0(113) June 14, 2007

Bug fixes

  • Fixed getting dumped back to spatial chat when joining group chat for first time
  • Several client crash fixes

- 1.17.0(112) June 13, 2007

New features

  • The "Voice tab" is a new UI element that provides voice volume control and Push-to-Talk functionality. It contains the "Talk" button and is located in the bottom right corner of the viewer window.
  • On-screen push-to-talk functionality is available via the Talk button. The "lock" button on top of the Talk button holds "talk on" or "talk off" (so the button doesn't have to be held down manually to maintain either state).
  • The Talk button on the Voice tab contains a volume indicator (a dot to the right of the button text "Talk") that shows how loudly YOU are speaking. Green indicates a normal volume, red indicates too loud a volume (a standard across speaking indicators for voice).
  • The volume slider in the Voice tab allows users to control the baseline volume for voice they hear from others.
  • Any key can be used as a Push-to-Talk key. This functionality is located in Preferences > Voice Chat.
  • Users can control where they prefer to hear voice from: 1) camera position and camera direction, 2) avatar position and avatar direction, or 3) avatar position and camera direction.
  • Audio devices are now enumerated and can subsequently be selected for use via the API. A device enumeration is provided when a user connects and when a a new device is added or removed.
  • Local audio intensity events are now exclusively generated by the local microphone energy.
  • The "Communicate" button and box comprise a new communication hub that brings text and voice chat for group, individual (one-to-one), and spatial conversation into a single user interface.
  • The new "Communicate" button is located in the bottom left corner of the viewer. It has replaced the "IM" and "Friends" buttons (by including them in the Communicate box).
  • The "My Friends" > "Friends" tab of the Communicate box shows a list of friends, via the "Friends' button in the viewer.
  • The "My Friends" > "Groups" tab of the Chatterbox shows a list of groups to which a resident belongs.
  • The "Near Me" tab shows voice speakers in close proximity to a resident.
  • Direct one-to-one voice chat is now available. This enables residents to initiate voice calls with just one other person, instead of groups. This is accessed via the Communicate box.
  • Names of callers now appear when one-to-one voice chat is initiated.
  • The button with speech bubble icons opens the Active Speakers window. The Active Speakers window shows who is speaking at any given moment.
  • The Communicate tab that is associated with a user's active voice channel now has an icon to show the active voice channel.
  • Users can mute other speakers from within the voice chat invitation they receive. Users can also right-click directly on an avatar and choose "Mute" from the pie menu that appears.
  • Speech gestures for voice are included in the Library, in Gestures > Speech Gestures. These gestures need to be activated in order to work; they are off by default.
  • Non-spatial group voice chat is available. This enables group voice conversation between avatars all across the grid, no matter where avatars are located in relation to each other.
  • Non-spatial group voice chat is available for both "formal" Second Life groups and ad hoc groups (as is the case for text chat).
  • Non-spatial group voice chat for "formal" Second Life groups can be initiated by clicking on the Groups tab in the Chatterbox and double-clicking on the group with which you'd like to chat.
  • Non-spatial group voice chat for ad hoc group voice chat with multiple friends can be initiated by clicking on the Friends tab in the Chatterbox.
  • Volume control and mute options are disabled on the "Near Me" tab in the Chatterbox when your own name is selected in the list of speakers.
  • The Communicate box tab that is associated with a user's active voice channel now had an icon (concentric rings/sound waves) to show the active voice channel.
  • Users can mute other speakers from within the voice chat invitation they receive.
  • New speech gestures for voice are included in the Library, in Gestures > Speech Gestures. These gestures need to be activated in order to work; they are off by default.

Known Issues

  • Starting one-to-one voice conversations is not consistently successful. It occasionally fails silently. When this failure happens, users sometimes cannot rejoin the spatial channel and the have to log in to the client again.
  • When parcel owners change Voice Settings to "Disable spatial audio on this parcel" (in About Land > Media), voice remains enabled for you and anyone else on the parcel. When you leave the parcel and re-enter it, voice is disabled.

Beta Release

- 1.17.0(110) June 8, 2007

New Features

  • Direct one-to-one voice chat is now available. This enables residents to initiate voice calls with just one other person, instead of groups. This is accessed via the Communicate button and the ChatterBox.
  • Per-parcel voice settings are now available. Parcels can be set to use the same spatial voice chat channel as surrounding areas, use private per-parcel channels, or have spatial voice chat disabled.

Known Issues

  • Though rare, proximal or "spatial" voice chat may not be available in all regions for which it is enabled. It works properly in most regions but there are occasional exceptions. This will be fixed in the next release.
  • Estate-level voice settings for estate owners are not yet active. Voice for all estates is currently set to "on" and cannot be turned off. Estate-level voice management for estate owners will be available in the next release.
  • Private voice channels are not always properly allocated to parcels (accessed via the "About Land" window and located under "Voice Settings"). This will be fixed in the next release.
  • More user-friendly error messages for voice are not connected to back-end error codes yet. User-friendly error messages for voice will be included in the next release.

- 1.17.0(109) June 6, 2007

Bug Fixes

  • Users now receive notifications (visible invitations) to non-spatial voice conversations (formal and ad hoc group voice chat, and text chat). Users can accept or reject calls and receive feedback that they've successfully joined a voice conversation.

New Features

  • The "Speakers" button on the Voice tab now has an icon (with speech bubbles) instead of the word "Speakers". This button still functions in the same way; it opens the Active Speakers window.
  • The Chatterbox tab that is associated with a user's active voice channel now had an icon (concentric rings/sound waves) to show the active voice channel.
  • Users can mute other speakers from within the voice chat invitation they receive.
  • Speech gestures for voice are included in the Library, in Gestures > Speech Gestures. These gestures need to be activated in order to work; they are off by default.

Known Issues

  • In the "About Land" window, there are three radio buttons that will enable parcel owners to control voice settings for their parcels. This is not active yet and will be available in the next release.

- 1.17.0(107) June 1, 2007

New features

  • Group voice chat is available. This enables group voice conversation between avatars all across the grid, no matter where avatars are located in relation to each other.
  • Group voice chat is available for both "formal" Second Life groups and ad hoc groups (as is the case for text chat).
  • Group voice chat for "formal" Second Life groups can be initiated by clicking on the Groups tab in the Chatterbox and double-clicking on the group with which you'd like to chat.
  • Group voice chat with two or more friends can be initiated by clicking on the Friends tab in the Chatterbox, selecting multiple friends from the list, and clicking the "Call/IM" button.
  • If you were speaking in a spatial voice channel prior to joining a group voice chat, you will return to the same spatial voice channel after leaving the group voice chat.
  • The Talk button on the Voice tab contains a volume indicator (a dot to the right of the button text "Talk") that shows how loudly YOU are speaking. Green indicates a normal volume, red indicates too loud a volume (a standard across speaking indicators for voice).
  • Volume control and mute options are disabled on the "Near Me" tab in the Chatterbox when your own name is selected in the list of speakers.

Known Issues

  • Users do not see a notification or visible invitation to group voice conversations. We expect this to be fixed in the next release, so users can accept or reject calls and receive feedback that they've successfully joined.
  • Private voice chat with a single other user is not yet implemented.
