Kokua 6.4.9 Release Notes

This release brings Kokua up to parity with LL release 6.4.9 and RLV release which is also based on 6.4.9.

Upstream changes are documented at these links: LL 6.4.8 https://releasenotes.secondlife.com/viewer/ , LL 6.4.9 https://releasenotes.secondlife.com/viewer/ and RLV http://realrestraint.blogspot.com/search/label/RestrainedLife

In addition there are a few changes of our own included. As usual the full list is at the bottom with some specific notes following.

KKA-753 - we found in some situations that the viewer could give an error related to the Microsoft redistributables and fail to start. This was caused by different versions in the build structure and the Windows system folders on the building machine. This is now resolved and the build process includes the redistributables matching the build rather than whichever version the system has installed as its defaults.

KKA-757 - we have created a submenu for RLV debug output and added switches to exclude =channel commands and switch output between the local chat floater and the script debug/error floater

(Note: the picture below will not show when viewed in the in-viewer browser - see https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/BUG-229034 )

There is one additional change to mention - clean installs of Kokua will now use the modern menu structure instead of the classic menu structure.
