Release notes for Breakroom viewer v2021.9f16040.

Viewer version: v2021.9f16040

Features

  1. 1.
    World Stream provider changed from Furioos to AWS.
    1. 1.
      Subscription Plans that include a Support Plan add-on automatically switch clients to Furioos as a fallback option when no AWS instances are available.
    2. 2.
      AWS includes a browser settings bar that displays commonly used features: Copy/Paste, Screen Resolution Options, Language Settings, Function Settings, and End Session.
    3. 3.
      Users will automatically be assigned to an available AWS instance with the lowest latency close to their location.
    4. 4.

  2. 2.
    Connection Status Indicators: Users will see an informational pop-up and a small icon when there is a connection problem. The three pop-ups are: Disconnected from the Network, Cannot Connect to Chat, and Data Cannot Be Synchronized with Our Servers. The viewer will check every few seconds to see if the issue is resolved, but users can also click Reconnect on the pop-up.
  3. 3.

      SNetwork.SendNetworkMessageToUser(string key, Table message, uint userID);

      1. 1.
        Triggers an action when the subscribed region property is updated.

[Design Note: “Copy body and shape morph” is an advanced feature for creators. This feature was moved from the Body & Shape preset tab so as not to confuse new users, and to keep that tab only for simple customization.]

Conference Tools

Features and Improvements

  • New Networking Area furniture item: This is a new prefab voice zone that includes a variety of tables and chairs with no supporting structure. It serves as the default "Networking" voice zone on the General Navigation bar, just as the Helpdesk furniture serves as the default “Entrance” voice zone but can be renamed.
  • New presenter seat furniture items: Added sofas and stools that can be used in place of just standing when used in a presenter-type environment (such as an auditorium).
  • New people picker: Crowd control and moderator messaging functions include a new people picker UI that is easier to use, with sorting and searching functions. It is better optimized for large numbers of users.
  • Visual voice zone indicators: When approaching the edge of a voice zone (entering or leaving), a blue holographic field will appear to visually indicate the voice zone boundary. This field is only visible within a few meters of the border.
  • Triage button: A Get Help button can now be enabled on the Start Here panel, providing users with an easy way to teleport directly to a zone or region (supports both) where someone can help them solve problems or answer questions. This button is disabled by default.
  • Real-time screen editing: When using the live Room Editor to place and edit voice zones, screen positioning and scaling will happen automatically in real-time as the screen markers are moved around and settings are changed (such as the resolution of the screen or its aspect ratio). This should make positioning and setting up voice zones much easier.
  • Room Editor monikers: When using the live Room Editor, add-on furniture and voice zones will now display their zone name in the Objects window, so you can easily locate specific voice zones to edit.
  • Quiet mode: The indicator in Crowd Controls has been changed from "Quiet On/Quiet Off" to "Quiet is on\Quiet is off" to indicate the system's current state in a less confusing way. Previously, it wasn't clear whether "Quiet On" meant Quiet is on, or that pressing the button would turn it on.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where Staff members had to be explicitly named to occupy VIP or reserved seating.
  • Fixed an issue where presenters invalidated built-in presenter stands on some voice zones.
  • Fixed an issue where the Workshop was taking a long time to load.
