Improved Wish List and Demos in Kitely Market

We’ve updated our system today with several improvements that were requested by our users. Among other things, we’ve made it easier to use the wish lists in Kitely Market, and to add Demo items to Kitely Market product listings.

Improved Wish List Usability

It’s now easier to buy items that are in your Wish List. The Wish List contains a “Buy” link next to each item. Previously, clicking this link would switch to the Shopping Cart, where the item would appear. This made it cumbersome to add multiple items from your Wish List to the Shopping Cart, because you’d have to flip back and forth between these two pages for each item.

Now, clicking “Buy” adds the selected item to the Shopping Cart but doesn’t switch to the Shopping Cart page. This makes it much faster to buy multiple items from the Wish List.

Simplified Demos Creation

Kitely Market has built-in support for adding Demos to product listings. Previously this feature required a lot of work from content creators, because they had to create a Demo item for each of the product’s variations. Products in Kitely Market often have many variations, so this quickly became tedious. It was also mostly unnecessary, since usually a product only needs one Demo, regardless of how many variations it has. For example, even if a dress is available in 8 colors, it’s often enough to provide a demo in only one color.

To address this issue, we’ve now changed Kitely Market so that if a product has any Demo, in any of its variations, then that Demo can be used by all of the variations. This eliminates the need to create multiple Demos for the product.

Of course, you can still create individual Demos per variation if you want. Each variation uses the following Demo, in order of preference:

  1. The variation’s own Demo.
  2. If that doesn’t exist: a Demo from the nearest previous variation in the Variations table.
  3. If that doesn’t exist either: a Demo from the nearest succeeding variation in the Variations table.
  4. If none of the above exist then the product has no Demo.

Removed Warnings for Standard OpenSim Assets

Kitely Market has built-in tools for finding and fixing problems in products. When content creators add a product to Kitely Market, we check their product and show warnings if it contains references to non-existing assets. However, sometimes these references are for standard predefined OpenSim asset identifiers. These predefined identifiers aren’t regular assets, but they’re not missing, and therefore shouldn’t cause our system to display warnings. We maintain a list of such assets, and we’ve now added several additional asset identifiers to that list to eliminate a few incorrect warnings that our system had previously displayed.

Enabled OSSL Functions

We’ve enabled the following OSSL functions for use by everyone. Previously they were only enabled for the world owner, but this was too restrictive:

To learn more, see this list of our supported OSSL functions.

llCastRay v3

We’ve switched to using llCastRay v3, which provides more accurate results than llCastRay v2.

Updated OpenSim 0.8.2.1

We upgraded to using a newer version of OpenSim 0.8.2.1. This update contains a few minor changes that only affect the backend, and no user-visible changes.

Search for People, Groups, Places, Events and Classifieds

Following many requests from our users, we’ve now implemented the viewer’s in-world search tabs. Click Ctrl+F to open the Search window, and then click on the tab that you want to search.

Search Events

People

This tab lets you search for avatars.

Groups

This tab lets you search for OpenSim groups.

Places

This tab lets you search for parcels. Only parcels that have enabled the “Show Place in Search” checkbox can be found (see details at the end of this post).

Events

This tab lets you search for Events. These are the events from our events system.

If you’ve created an event then we highly recommend that you specify the event’s location, as described in How to Add Events. Now that people can search for events in the viewer, they will want to click “Teleport” to go to the location of the event — but that’s only possible if the event creator has entered a valid location for the event.

Classifieds

This tab lets you search for Classified Ads.

We’ve implemented a complete Classifieds system, so you can now buy Classified Ads (using Kitely Credits). Each Classified Ad runs for one week, and you can choose to have it be renewed automatically.

The minimum price of a Classified Ad is 50 KC (per week). In Search, the Classified Ads are sorted by the price that the classified’s creator chose to pay for the ad: from highest price to lowest price.

A few people had created classifieds in the past. Those ads have been deleted, because we didn’t charge people for classifieds until now, and we don’t want to start charging people unexpectedly.

Web Search

This is the only tab that worked even before today’s update, and it hasn’t changed. It still lets you search for People or Places.

Note that in the “Web Search” tab, searching for places searches for Worlds. In contrast, searching in the “Places” tab searches for Parcels.

Add Your Parcels to Search

If you have a parcel that you’d like people to visit then we highly recommend that you make it visible in Search:

  • Open the About Land dialog (using the menu: World > Parcel Details)
  • Give the parcel a good name and description, to make it easy to find in Search. (When people search for Places, the results are sorted by the best match to the parcel’s name and description.)
  • Enable the “Show Place in Search” checkbox (in the Options tab of the About Land window).
  • Set a Landing Point.
  • Set a snapshot (not required, but recommended).
  • Select an appropriate Category.

Parcel Options

When you make changes to your parcel, it may take a few minutes before these changes are visible in Search.

Parcel Maturity

When searching for Places, it’s possible to select the desired maturity rating: only parcels that have this maturity rating will be shown. Therefore, you should set your parcels’ maturity rating correctly. But this is a bit tricky, because the region’s maturity rating limits which maturity rating you can assign to the parcel:

  • If your region has a maturity rating of  “General” then all the parcels in the region are also “General”.
  • If your region has a maturity rating of “Moderate” then you can choose, for each parcel, whether it’s “General” or “Moderate”.
  • If your region has a maturity rating of  “Adult” then all the parcels in the region are also “Adult”.

You can change the region’s maturity rating, but note that this only takes effect after the world is restarted.

It’s possible to set a region maturity rating (in OpenSim) that’s different from the world maturity rating (which is chosen in the Kitely website), but this is confusing so we recommend that you keep the two maturity ratings the same. In other words, if you change one maturity rating then you should also change the other one to match.

To change a world’s maturity rating, go to the My Worlds page on the Kitely website and click the Manage link next to the world you wish to change. This will open that world’s Manage World window. The option to change the world’s maturity rating is found in that window’s Access tab.

Database Storage System Upgrade

We upgraded our infrastructure today with a faster storage device for the main system database. Until now, this database was stored on a regular (magnetic) hard disk. This hard disk was sufficient for our needs until a couple of days ago, when it started limiting the speed in which our system could handle database requests. We have therefore decided to upgrade our database to run on an SSD (a fast flash-memory-based hard disk) to help us keep up with the increasing usage of Kitely worlds.

By the way, the world nodes (the servers that run OpenSim) have been using SSDs since 2014.

Automatic World Optimization and Other Improvements

We updated Kitely today with several features that improve the in-world experience, including a system that automatically optimizes Kitely worlds so they’ll start faster.

Automatic World Optimization

A common problem in OpenSim is that objects that have complex physics meshes can cause the world to start slowly. A physics mesh is the part of the object that determines where it’s solid, and where avatars can walk through it. For example, suppose you have a large arch in your world. The object’s physics mesh would also be in the shape of an arch: this is what allows users to walk back and forth under the arch.

Most physics meshes are simple and don’t cause a problem. However, if these physics meshes are very complex (i.e., they contain many triangles), then it takes OpenSim a long time to parse them. This makes the world start slower, because this parsing is performed when the world starts. In some cases we’ve seen worlds that take an extra 10 minutes (!) to start, just because of the time that they have to spend parsing complex physics meshes.

Note that all objects have a physics mesh; not only mesh objects. However, in practice, usually only mesh objects (and some sculpties) can have a physics mesh that’s complex enough to cause a problem.

In the past, when we’ve seen this problem we used to contact world owners and ask them to fix their objects: either by simplifying the physics mesh, or by making the objects phantom (since a phantom object’s physics mesh isn’t used, and therefore it doesn’t take any time to parse during startup). But this took a lot of work both on our part, and on the world owner’s part, who had to track down all of the objects and fix them.

Therefore, in today’s update we added a feature that automatically handles this problem. When Kitely worlds start, any object that takes 1.5 seconds or more to parse is automatically made phantom. Because this is done automatically, world owners no longer need to track down the objects themselves. We also send an email with a detailed list of all the objects that we had made phantom, so if the world owner prefers to optimize their physics meshes and make the objects non-Phantom then they can easily locate the objects in-world.

Here’s an example of part of such an email:

Dear Oren,

Your Kitely world Bridges contains some objects with complex physics meshes. These
meshes were causing the world to start slowly, because of the time that it takes
OpenSim to process them.

[...]

Slow mesh: 4266 ms
    Object:
        Name: Tennis Racket High
        UUID: af322f3d-e937-4876-b060-c908762f8e5f
        Location: (402.1, 249.4, 20.9)

This feature is now live in all Kitely worlds.

Enabled llRequestURL in the Same Region

Before today’s update, there was a problem with llRequestURL: the URL that it returned only worked when it was called from other regions. However, when it was called from a prim in the same region, it didn’t work. This happened due to a security feature in OpenSim whose details are too technical to explain here. If you’re interested, see this forum thread for more information.

We’ve now fixed this problem, by having llRequestURL provide URLs that contain an IP instead of a hostname.

More Offline IMs

Some of our users have said that they often reach the limit on Offline IMs (which was 25), causing them to miss some IMs. Therefore, we’ve increased the number of Offline IMs that are saved for each avatar from 25 to 50. This is the same limit that Premium Account users in Second Life get.

Events System and Other Improvements

We updated the system today with a feature that makes Events in Kitely much easier to find and attend. This update also includes several other bug fixes and improvements.

Events

Events are a great way to meet other people and have a good time. In this update we’ve made it much easier to see the list of active and upcoming events. The list of events in Kitely is now shown in the viewer’s login page:

Events List

Click on an event to see its details. Then, click on the event’s location to enter the world where the event is taking place.

Event Details

The Kitely Events Calendar is maintained by the Kitely community. If you’d like to add your own events to the calendar then see How to Add Events.

New Design for the Viewer Login Page

We redesigned the viewer’s login page in order to make more information visible, while taking up less screen space. We heard from our users that the previous design (where the panels appeared one below the other) was too tall, so some users didn’t see the lower panels because they appeared below the bottom of their monitor.

Therefore, we’ve changed the design. The four main panels now appear in a 2×2 square. Each panel only shows part of its information. To see the full panel, simply move the mouse into the panel: it will immediately expand to show more information.

Viewer Login Page - 2x2

By the way, you can view this page from a regular browser if you want (not just from a viewer). The URL is: http://www.kitely.com/viewer_login.

Email Notifications for Group Notices

Kitely has an option to send emails when a user receives IMs or Group Notices while offline. In today’s update, we’ve split this option into two parts:

  • Send me an email if I receive an Instant Message from a person while offline  (Default: on)
  • Send me an email if I receive a Notice from one of my groups while offline (Default: off)

Offline IM Settings

The reason for this change is that some users want to receive email notifications only when someone sends them an IM, but not when one of their groups sends a Notice, because Notices aren’t directed personally at them.

We’ve made the new option (send email on Notice) set to Off by default. So if you do want to receive emails on Group Notices then go to your Settings page and turn this option on.

Other Improvements

We fixed a bug that sometimes caused IM’s to stop working after a user teleported to another world.

In a previous update we added the ability to redirect a Kitely Market order from a Kitely avatar to a Hypergrid avatar. We’ve now improved this feature so that even if the order contained some No-Export items (which can never be delivered to a Hypergrid avatar), we’ll still redeliver all of the Exportable items that are in the order, instead of refusing to redeliver anything.

Some products in Kitely Market have demo versions. We don’t allow sending Demos to Hypergrid avatars; they can only be sent to Kitely avatars. Previously, if you had selected a Hypergrid avatar then we silently ignored your choice and sent the items to your Kitely avatar instead. But this wasn’t clear: people were left wondering why the Demo items weren’t delivered to their Hypergrid avatar’s inventory. So now we show an error message if you attempt to deliver Demo items to a Hypergrid avatar.

Try Demo

We created a server-side workaround for a viewer bug that causes viewers to fail to load the avatar’s inventory when some of the inventory items contain unusual characters in their name or description.

We fixed a rare problem in Kitely Market Analytics that could cause some Views and Impressions to be double-counted.

We updated the version of the Facebook API that we use to version 2.6. This shouldn’t have any visible effect, but if you have a Facebook-connected Kitely account and do notice a problem then please let us know.

Improved Viewer Login Page

We updated our system today with an all-new Viewer Login Page. We also added a way to report Kitely Market products if they violate the Terms of Service.

New Viewer Login Page

The Viewer Login Page is the page that appears in viewers (Firestorm, etc.) when the Kitely grid has been selected, before you press the “Log In” button. Until today, this page just displayed a screenshot of the Kitely Welcome Center. But now it shows constantly-updating information that is useful to people visiting the Kitely grid.

Viewer Login Page

The Grid Info table shows the number of users, worlds and regions in the Kitely grid. It also shows how these numbers have changed in the last 24 hours, and in the last 30 days.

The Destinations panel includes several publicly-accessible worlds that may be currently interesting to visit (because they are popular or currently have other people inside them). You can click on a world to select it as the destination. Then, press the “Log In” button to enter that world.

The New in Kitely Market panel shows some of the newest products that have been added to Kitely Market.

The New Forum Posts panel shows some forum threads that have recently had new posts added to them.

The bottom of the page contains several useful links.

The grid statistics in this page are updated once per hour and the rest of the information is updated every five minutes.

Report Kitely Market Products

Sometimes, products that have been added to Kitely Market might not follow all of the market’s rules. E.g., the products might have the wrong Maturity Rating, or they don’t use Variations correctly. In such cases, users can now report these problems to us by clicking the Report product link in the product page:

Report Product

We’ll investigate these reports and take appropriate action if necessary. In most cases we’ll just contact the merchant and ask him or her to fix whatever needs to be changed. But in more serious cases (e.g., copyright infringement) we may suspend the product, which means that it will no longer be visible in Kitely Market.

Resend Items to Other Avatars

When you purchase items in Kitely Market, you can choose which avatar will get these items using the Deliver To setting in the shopping cart. Unfortunately, sometimes people mistakenly deliver their purchases to the wrong avatar. We’ve repeatedly tweaked how the Deliver To setting works in order to try and minimize these mistakes, but occasionally people still forget to change this setting. When this happens they often approach us about their mistake and ask us to redeliver the items to the avatar that they had intended to buy them for.

Until today, our only recourse was to refund their purchase, instruct them how to properly configure the Deliver To setting for their desired avatar, and then hope that they’ll reorder the items with the correct configuration. However, as this process can be cumbersome, sometimes people didn’t reorder after they’ve received the refund, so they ended up without the items that they wanted, and the merchant lost out on a sale. Therefore, we’ve added a feature that allows us to fix these problems by redelivering the items directly to the desired avatar, without refunding the original transaction or requiring the buyer to reorder. This streamlined process makes fixing these problems quick and easy.

Other Improvements

When you search Kitely Market, we make sure to show you only products that match your account’s Maturity Rating. E.g., for a user whose maturity rating is set to “Moderate”, we show only products with a maturity rating of “General” or “Moderate”, but not products whose maturity rating is “Adult”. In addition, users can choose a maturity filter in their Kitely Market search. For example, a user with an account maturity rating of “Moderate” might select to search only for products whose maturity rating is “General”. In that case, we only show “General” products.

However, until now this filter didn’t apply to the ads that we show at the top of Kitely Market searches. So in the example above, the user could still see ads for products with a maturity rating of “Moderate”. But starting today, we also limit the ads to the maturity rating that was selected in the search filter.

And finally, we’ve updated the default viewer that we offer to new users to Firestorm 4.7.7.

Kitely Market Revenue Splitting

We added a new feature to Kitely Market today: Revenue Splits. Revenue Splits enable merchants to share the revenue that they get from selling a product with other merchants who contributed to the creation of that product.

How to Create a Revenue Split

Here’s the part of the Edit Product page where you can create a Revenue Split:

Create a Revenue Split

To create a revenue split:

  • Edit the product
  • Under “Product Revenue Split”, click on the Plus sign to add a merchant
  • Type in the merchant’s name
  • Select what percent of the product’s revenue they’ll get

The Product Revenue Split applies to all of the product’s variations. However, if you wish, you can also set a revenue split that applies only to a single variation. To do so, click on Override the product revenue split, and then enter a revenue split that applies only to the current variation.

The portion of the product’s revenue that is assigned to a merchant is called their Revenue Share. E.g., “Oren’s revenue share is 30%.” All of the merchants that have a Revenue Share in a product (including the store owner) are called Revenue Participants.

Only users that have a Kitely Market store can become Revenue Participants. But their store doesn’t have to include any products; it can be empty.

It’s possible to assign a revenue share of 0% to a user. In that case the user is just an observer: they don’t get any revenue from sales of the product, but they’ll be informed whenever the product is sold.

What Happens after a Sale

When a product is sold, all of the product’s Revenue Participants get their share of the revenue added to their balance.

In addition, all of the Revenue Participants can see the sale in the following places:

  • They get an email notification about the sale
  • The Sales History page
  • Sales Reports (in CSV format)
  • Order details page
  • Analytics
  • Payouts (only if the product sold for USD)

This means that Revenue Participants can see products from other stores appear in tables that normally show only their own products. To make it clear that these products belong to other stores, the store name is shown below the product, and the merchant’s Revenue Share is shown below the Received amount. For example, the following screenshot shows a Sales History page with two items: one that belongs to the merchant’s own store (“Beach Chair”), and one that belongs to a different store (“Parrots [Solo]”). Note that the other store’s name (“Caldwell’s Curiosities”) appears below the product name.

Sales History with a Revenue Share

Refunds

The Refund and Redeliver options are only available to the owner of the store from which the product was bought; other Revenue Participants are not allowed to initiate these actions. When a product is refunded all the Revenue Participants have their share of the revenue removed from their balance, and they get an email notification informing them of the refund.

Showing Partial Revenue

Throughout Kitely Market, wherever Revenues are shown, the amount shown is just the amount that the merchant received through their Revenue Share. For example, in the screenshot above, this merchant received $0.36 for the product “Parrots”, which is 30% of the total amount received by all the Revenue Participants (which was $1.20). If you were to look at the other merchant’s Sales History page (the merchant that got a 70% Revenue Share), you would see that their “Received” column shows $0.84 (that’s 70% of $1.20).

There are two exceptions, where the Full Revenue is shown instead of Partial Revenue: the Sales Campaigns page and the Ads page. These pages are only visible to the merchant that owns the Sales Campaign or Ad; they’re not visible to other Revenue Participants. Therefore, the merchant is shown the full revenue that was generated through each Sales Campaign or Ad (even though the amount that they personally received was smaller than that).

Analytics

All of the Revenue Participants in a product can see the product in their Analytics pages. They can see the full data about users’ interactions with the product, such as how many Impressions and Views it got. However, the Sales information that they see is different for each merchant: each one only sees information about their own Revenue Share.

If a Revenue Participant is removed from a product then they stop getting sales information about the product. However, they can continue to see the product in their Analytics pages, because Analytics shows historical information and they used to have a revenue share in the product.

Unified Passwords and a Login Fallback Option

We updated our system today with several improvements that make it easier to login to the Kitely grid.

Unified Passwords

Some Kitely users have two passwords: a Grid password, used to login from the viewer; and a Website password, used to login to the Kitely website. (If you signed up to Kitely using your Facebook or Twitter account then you don’t have two passwords, so this section isn’t relevant to you.)

Keeping track of two passwords can be confusing, and quite a few people had problems logging into the grid because they changed their website password when they had intended to change their grid password. We’ve therefore decided to unify these two passwords: now the same password will be used to login to both the Kitely grid and to the Kitely website.

This change will only affect future passwords; not existing passwords. This means that for existing users, your passwords have not changed; you can keep using Kitely as you usually do. This change will only make a difference if you decide to change your password in the future: at that time, the new password that you choose will be set as both your Grid password and your Website password.

Login Fallback Option

When you try to login to the Kitely grid from the viewer, sometimes the world that you want to enter isn’t available. This can happen if the world was deleted; or if its permissions don’t allow you to visit it; or if the world has been suspended.

Until now, when such problems occurred we showed you an error message in the  viewer’s main screen and prevented you from logging into the Kitely grid. You therefore never got to enter the grid, which is annoying. Today’s update solves this problem: now, when you enter valid login credentials (username and password), we always let you log into the Kitely grid. If you can’t log into your desired destination then we send your avatar to the Kitely Welcome Center instead. Once you’re there you can teleport to other worlds, talk to people, etc.

Other Changes

Based on user requests, we fixed the LSL function llGetWallclock to return the current time in the PST timezone.

Performance Improvements and Bug Fixes

We updated the system today with several performance improvements, and fixed some OpenSim bugs that were reported by our users.

We’ve updated Kitely to OpenSim 0.8.2.1. This is a minor change, after last week’s update to OpenSim 0.8.2.

We improved the performance of our cloud-based inventory system for users with very large inventories. Your avatar’s inventory should now load faster in the viewer.

We fixed a bug that caused regions in big worlds to appear Offline in the World Map. Those regions weren’t really offline; they just looked that way on the map. Now they are properly displayed as being online.

We fixed a bug that, on rare occasions, caused teleports to high coordinates of a big world to result in the avatar being teleported to location (128,128).

One of the most advanced LSL functions is llCastRay. OpenSim now supports two versions of llCastRay: v1 and v3. We’re currently using v1, which is the default. However, we’re considering switching to llCastRay v3. If you’re currently using llCastRay then please join this forum thread and let us know what you think. If you’re a world owner then we can selectively switch your world to use llCastRay v3, if you’d like to test it.

When evaluating the alternatives to llCastRay, please test two aspects: 1) Is v3 faster or slower than v1? 2) Is v3 more or less correct than v1 (i.e., does it identify the hit objects correctly)?

VarRegions, 10x Faster Object Contents, and More Fonts

We updated our system today with several big changes, including upgrading to OpenSim 0.8.2 Release; converting all the big worlds to VarRegions; and 10x faster loading of object contents.

OpenSim 0.8.2 Release

We upgraded to OpenSim 0.8.2 Release. We were already using OpenSim 0.8.2 Dev, so most of the features in OpenSim 0.8.2 have already been included in Kitely. However, there are still a few changes:

The new version of OpenSim has changed the format of compiled scripts. Therefore, all of the scripts in Kitely need to be recompiled. The first time that any world is started after this update, it will spend some time recompiling its scripts. During this time the world will perform slower than usual, and scripts will be slow to start. This will take a few minutes, and it will only happen once.

The value shown for Physics FPS has changed. It used to be around 55 fps, but for a while OpenSim switched to a different way of showing frame rates, which caused the Physics FPS to show around 11 fps. That change has been unpopular so it was reversed, and now OpenSim shows a Physics FPS around 55 again.

In avatars’ inventories, the “# Kitely Market” folder will now appear near the bottom of the inventory instead of at the top. This is due to a change in how OpenSim handles inventory folders.

A new OSSL function has been added: osGetAvatarHomeURI. It returns an avatar’s Home URI, i.e. the address of its home grid.

Converted All the Big Worlds to VarRegions

All the big worlds (worlds with more than one region) are now VarRegions. See our previous blog post for more information.

10x Faster Object Contents

Don’t you hate it when you click on an object to view its contents, and you’re stuck looking at “Loading contents…” for a long time?

Loading Contents

To fix this, we have significantly improved loading the contents of an object:

First, we’ve improved the reliability of this operation, so the “Loading contents…” message should always disappear eventually, and the contents of the object will appear. (Previously, sometimes the contents never appeared, no matter how long you waited.)

Second, we vastly improved the speed of loading object contents. To test this, we created an object with a large inventory (95 items). In regular OpenSim (and in Kitely before today’s update), loading this object’s contents took 16.0 seconds. After this update, loading the contents takes just 3.5 seconds, a 78% reduction!

But wait, there’s more! Viewers have a debug option called XferThrottle, which can be tweaked to get even more speed. The default value of this option is 150000. If you increase it to 500000 then the time to load the object’s contents drops even more: to 1.6 seconds. So in total, Kitely has reduced the time to load the object’s contents from 16.0 seconds to 1.6 seconds, which is ten times faster than regular OpenSim!

Here’s how you can change the XferThrottle option:

  • Start the viewer
  • Make sure the “Debug” or “Advanced” menu is visible (either name might be used). If the menu isn’t visible then press Ctrl+Alt+D to show it.
  • Select from the Debug or Advanced menu: “Debug Settings” or “Show Debug Settings”
  • In the Debug Settings dialog: type “XferThrottle”
  • Enter the value you want
  • Restart the viewer (this is required)

Here’s what the Debug Settings dialog looks like in Firestorm:

XferThrottle

Two final notes: First, increasing XferThrottle above 500,000 doesn’t reduce the loading time any more. Second, increasing XferThrottle doesn’t reduce the loading time in regular OpenSim, because it’s too slow to take advantage of this setting.

Other Changes

We upgraded to Mono 4.2.1, which should be slightly faster than the version of Mono we used before today’s update (3.10).

We installed additional fonts on our servers, which you can use in scripts. See this forum thread for more information. Some of the new fonts include: Zapf Chancery, Arial Black, Comic Sans MS, Impact, and the ever-popular Webdings.

We fixed a search bug: if a world name contained a common word such as “of” or “in”, and you searched for the world using that word, then the world wasn’t found. Now it will be found. (To be clear, it’s not possible to search just using such short words. But it’s possible to include them in addition to more substantial words. E.g.: you can search for “state of”, but not just for “of”.)

We changed the default viewer that we offer to new users to Firestorm 4.7.5.
