Second Life Viewer Kristens Viewer has stopped development on September 8th 2011. The viewer started back in 2010, making an alternative to then default viewer Linden Labs V2, which aimed to be a friendly portal for residents who wanted to explore the vast world of Second Life as a photographer, a builder or a film maker. Kristens Viewer was a mixture of the Snowstorm project and other source codes.
In a blog final blog entry entitled ‘Sad Farewell’ from the creator of Kristens Viewer, Kristenlee Cinquetti, explains her reasons for the end of this amazing viewer:
You may have noticed that the client has not been updated in some time.
Sadly Real Life events have taken an unfortunate turn which basically puts an end to any more development. The Plans for S22 have been shelved and the project has been marked as discontinued. Installers have been removed as they are now very outdated, the sourcecode will of course remain. The website and forums will stay up for as long is required. Also inworld groups will stay active. It is of course entirely your choice as to how long you continue to use the client, however I do stress that it will fall behind with features and it may be wise to seek alternatives in the near future.

She ends with a final farewell a big thanks to those who have stood by the making of the viewer over the time.
The Torch SL Guide bids farewell to Kristens Viewer.
