LibOpenMetaverse Release 0.8.1

We are releasing a quick maintenance release for libomv containing several bug fixes and a couple of new features.

The most important bugfix might help in case you are seeing naked avatars after a rebake. The problem occurred when the bin folder of the application using libomv was read-only. Also please note that you have to copy folder openmetaverse_data to the directory containing the executable (.exe) of your application.

LibOpenMetaverse Release 0.8.0

The libopenmetaverse Ninjas are proud to announce libopenmetaverse 0.8.0! This is the best libopenmetaverse yet! Among many new features and bug fixes we can highlight much improved and fully automatic Appearance Manager, it's no longer needed to set appearance and rebake avatar textures manually. Libopenmetaverse 0.8.0 also adds support for recent protocol additions, such as media on a prim, inventory links, content maturity rating and others.

This release standardizes the event handling model and follows the standard guidelines for naming and implementation of events. This also unfortunatelly means that the API for events has change quite a bit, and porting applications from earlier versions will be a non trivial task. Application developers are encouraged to take a look at various implementation examples in the bundled TestClient application among the others. Help on updating the wiki that would reflect the current API would be greatly appreciated.
