Wifi ImprovementsSeptember 11th, 2010 at 10:51
There is s new diva distribution release, corresponding to OpenSim 0.7.0.2. Along with OpenSim improvements, this new release has several improvements to Wifi, and most of them were contributed by Marck. A big thank you to him! Let me go through them.
New fluid style: the original style.css style sheet has been replaced by fluid.css. “Fluid” means that Wifi pages adapt to the size of the browser window. If you made changes to style.css, you may want to backport them to the new style sheet. See the result:
Any number of avatar types: Wifi started with 3 types of avatars for your users: Male, Female and Neutral. We changed the syntax, so that you can now have any number of avatar types. The new syntax is AvatarAccount_<Type> = “<First> <Last>”. If you’re using Wifi outside of the diva distribution, please make sure to change your existing configuration file to reflect this syntax. (Diva distro users don’t need to worry about this, the syntax been updated automatically) See the result:
Expansion/Contraction of inventory folders: you knew this was coming, and here it is. Inventory listings now are expandable/contractable. See the result:
These are the 3 major improvements to Wifi, but there are several other smaller improvements listed on the release notes. If you had customized the customizable Wifi pages (such as splash.html, welcome.html, footer.html, etc) you may want to compare the new versions of these files with yours, and backport your customizations to the new ones. In the diva distro, if you choose to port your Wifi pages, the new files that come in the new release are kept as .diva files, so that you can easily compare.
