Softpedia Listing

by on Apr.28, 2010, under Uncategorized

This is a bit flattering news… Softpedia decided to download and test out Whisper – they were impressed enough to list it. All this without me even contacting them! Their email states “We are impressed with the quality of your product and encourage you to keep these high standards in the future.” They even certify that it is free of adware, viruses, trojans and backdoors.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it!

Whisper Released

by on Apr.24, 2010, under Uncategorized

As promised, I’ve rebranded and released “Whisper” and “WhisperTransport”.

You can grab the files from here. Note that you must upgrade both components in order to ensure proper functionality. Be sure to read the “Disclosure.txt” file for important privacy policy information and other functionality disclosures.

There are no new features in this release except for the rebranding and now you will be asked to accept the Second Life Terms of Service before you connect (and after each ToS update).

I’m now going to self-certify the viewer so that it won’t get blocked by Linden Lab.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. SlXSLChat has rebranded to “Whisper”. I’d like to say this is purely my choice, but the Third Party Viewer Policy released by Linden Labs is quite clear that no third party client may have “SL” in its name. Since this client is about being light weight, simple and understated, “Whisper” seemed like a fitting title.

I’ll have to make all new releases of the software fairly soon to be compliant – I think usage of SlXSLChat has already been blocked even though the policy doesn’t become enforced until the 30th of April.

Watch this space!

Whisper v1.1 Released

by on Apr.11, 2010, under Uncategorized

Hi guys!

There’s a new version of Whisper out. This is just a maintenance release, but fixes a fairly significant bug! The password hashing algorithm wasn’t working properly (it wasn’t padding single digit bytes into double digits when generating the MD5 hash, thus causing some passwords to become corrupt, which meant Second Life denied login). Other fixes are mostly cosmetic – see the README file included.

As ever, you can grab the latest version from here. Feedback is greatly appreciated!
