Good news for Firestorm users. Read more details below and get the questions answered you have perhaps.

Do I need this update at all?
Well, the update comes with some new features. They are interesting, but one can live without them. Howver, the update is also fixing numerous bugs of the previous version. I think that is reason enough to install the new.
See all changes and bug fixes here: Firestorm Release Notes
Photo CybergirlWhere can I get the new version?
You can download it from the official Firestorm webseite. Download link Choose the version that fits with your operating system. 64bit or 32bit? That is for windows users only. If you have a 64bit windows installed, you can use both - the 32bit and the 64bit. If you have a 32bit windows installed you can use the 32 bit version only.
SL & OpenSim or SL only? OpenSim is another virtual world similar with Second Life. If you visit both worlds, SL and OpenSim, you need to install the SL & OpenSim viewer version.

How to install the Update?
First before your start it is very recommended that you back up your current settings. You can do that easily in your Firestorm window avatar menu > preferences > backup.
Clean install or basic install - what's the difference? Normally you can install the update right over the old version. All the settings of your old version will be used automatically in the new version also. That is a basic install.

In case the basic install failed or you notice that it doesn't work correctly a clean install may be neccessary. Read everything about a clean install here.
Note, after a clean install your viewer starts from zero with default settings. You can restore your previous settings by using the back up that you hopefully made. :)

Verified your e-mail address already?

Recently Linden Lab introduced e-mail verification. In future when you sign up to Second Life, you will find a request in the registration form to verify your e-mail address. That's easy. Just click on the link, go to your e-mail, find the verification mail that Linden sent you. It includes another link. Just click it and your are normally done.

However, not only new users have to verify their e-mail. Existing residents have to do it also. Go to your Second Life account, find "change e-mail address" tab in the menu on the left, open the page und click the "verify" link nearby your current e-mail address. That is all. The link will now say "verified". You have to do it each time you change your e-mail address.

Why is it important to verify your e-mail at all? Well, Linden Lab is going to make changes soon to their service. One is that Second Life mails won't be send to unverified resident e-mail addresses no more. For example, if you are a market place merchant you won't receive informations about your sales, customer reviews or comments.
Check screen shot below. I verified my address already.
