Sometimes it takes us humans quite some time to admit something to ourselves that we don’t want to admit, but eventually there’s no more putting it off.
It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce the end. It’s over. No more new Dolphin Viewer.
With my current RL job and all the travelling that I’m doing there are more exciting things to do with the little time I have to spend on SL and other hobbies, than maintaining a third party viewer… especially when most of the “maintenance” involves fixing stuff that shouldn’t have been broken in the first place.
I have been porting a few of the things that used to be in Dolphin Viewer 3 to Firestorm in the last few weeks, the repository with those changes is here.
I invite the FS team to grab anything from there that they like.
I’ll leave the website and the forum up and running for the time being, but I’m going to close the Dolphin Viewer Resort at Hippotropolis at some point in the future.
I will keep the openSUSE repository at OBS running for my own use, but eventually there will be no more Dolphin Viewer in there… just radegast, Firestorm and the official viewer.
Good bye, and thanks for all the fish!
