Black Dragon is MY Viewer, i decide which feature i want to add and which to remove, i share this Viewer to show the world that user base size is not important, i do rate quality by effort, thought and love put into the project, not some rough estimated numbers. I consider feature requests only if i you can name proper valid reasons i can agree on. It is my (unpaid) time i'm putting into this project, i'm not here to cater to every Joe's desires.

Black Dragon 64x - Update 4.0.6 "Refreshing Dragon"

 Man this has surely been a long time in the coming.

A much needed update to bring the Viewer closer to the latest code from Linden Labs, no other changes though, just fixes for most things that broke with the code merge as i'm not planning to do anything big until the Viewer is up to date (preferably with the performance viewer by then). It's not much anymore but its by far the most breaking changes that are still left to be merged, the update would have gone life months ago if it didn't break the Viewer and make it crash for unknown reasons leaving me to start over and slowly merge up to that point (rather than a massive bulk merge). Good news is the Viewer should be more stable with a lot new crash fixes from the labs as well as some smaller things that were broken in 4.0.5 should be fixed too now.

I'm sorry this took so long but the past couple months have been quite hard, things are going south everywhere, friends are having issues, my mom having to go to hospital (she's getting better now) and personal emotional problems kicking in, there's also my upcoming birthday tomorrow which is going make me yeet myself out the window and the shit just keeps piling on...i'll try to get this next update out as soon as possible (after some fixes) so i can start implementing the feedback and new features people have been asking for and get down to some much needed finetuning.

Oh. I HIGHLY recommend deleting the Viewer folder before installing this update, a lot of files have been removed, renamed, replace and shoved around. It will inevitably cause issues if you just install it over the last update.

As always keep reporting bugs and take care in these dangerous times.
