Dophin Viewer 3 on openSUSE

Here’s another little bit of pre-release information:

openSUSE 12.2 is officially End-Of-Life as of January 27, 2014. That means, I won’t be providing rpm packages of the Dolphin Viewer 3 for openSUSE 12.2 anymore. The last one available for openSUSE 12.2 will be 3.4.14.

That being said, if you are running openSUSE 12.3, and have been using the Dolphin Viewer 3 through packages from the RPM repository, try a “zypper install dolphinviewer3-beta” if you feel like it 🙂

Once I have an actual release, the beta version will uninstall itself, just like magic.

The Ghost of Dolphins Yet To Come

Just in case you thought it would not happen … from Help/About:

Dolphin Viewer 3 3.5.99 (30446) Jan 25 2014 17:15:48 (RestrainedLove viewer v2.08.05.09 (3.6.11.30354))

So far I have:

  • Latest Viewer-Release+RLV
  • The Sailor’s Mini Map V2
  • Avatar name in the title bar
  • Several bugfixes

What I still need before I can even think of calling it a public beta, let alone release:

  • Proper branding in all places, including icons and names of settings files
  • Preferences pages for all Dolphin Viewer 3 features
  • Flickr uploader
  • Improved build tools
  • Worn tab
  • Advanced inventory search/filter
  • Area search
  • Machinima floater

Estimated release date: no idea yet. Right now I have time to work on it, but that might change in a few weeks.

Just thought you’d like to know…
