Release Notes for Second Life 1.10.5(1) June 28, 2006

New Features

  • Each resident's profile now includes a field revealing whether the resident has provided payment information to Linden Lab.
    • The profile's "Account" field includes account status: "Resident" or "Linden Lab Employee" and, in the case of "Resident" status one of three status entries:
      • "No Payment Info on File" - account was created with no credit card or Paypal
      • "Payment Info on File" - account has provided a credit card or Paypal
      • "Payment Info Used" - credit card or Paypal on account has successfully been billed
    • We plan to provide features in future updates to mark specific parts of the Second Life world (or allow residents to mark their own land) as accessible only to accounts with payment information.

  • More categories have been added to the Places menu
  • The Library is displayed at the bottom of the Inventory for quicker access to one's own Inventory
