First, what is the Phoenix Firestorm Viewer all about? Firestorm is the next generation viewer for Second Life produced by us; it is based off of Linden Lab's V2 code base but with a focus on making it V1 familiar. It's focus is to provide you with a smaller learning curve and an easier transition from V1 to V2. However, while that has been our focus it is important to mention that it still does have a learning curve, it is not exactly the same as V1 or the Phoenix Viewer. Because of this we have gone to great lengths to provide you with tutorial videos and extensive documentation which we HIGHLY encourage you to have a look at. It will take some getting used to, but if you give it a chance you'll find it will quickly feel very comfortable for full time use.
Firestorm FUI (Flexible User Interface) Beta has a completely new interface which is a hundred times more flexible than previous versions. We've even included an incredible V1/Phoenix skin which hasn't been seen on any V2 viewer until now. We also feel it has better performance and stability than our previous Firestorm builds and hope you enjoy it!
* Check out the video first!
We made a video to give you an idea of what you can do with this new interface and especially encourage Phoenix users to have a watch of the video before you update your Phoenix viewers. We think you just might want to switch to this Firestorm FUI after watching it. http://youtu.be/QYaf2NZZmIE
