Restrained Love v2.7.3.2

Hi there,

Here is the latest version of the RLV, no new features this time but an updated codebase and a few bug fixes. The change I like the most in the new codebase is being able to focus on any object without having this "zoom effect" we've had for years. You can now focus on a hollow prim at will.

This new codebase also added a "feature" that I personally disliked very much, and therefore changed back to how it was before : the Build window used to have a drop-down list that would allow you to change the way objects were moved and rotated : World/Local/Reference/Screen/Attachment. It was VERY useful for a builder and I used it like all the time. I don't know why, but Linden Lab moved this list box to an annex window (the "Build Options" one). However this window is meant to be used only once in a while, now the SL viewer requires a builder to have it open at all times. It eats more screen real estate and makes you click more, for no gain. Worse, this list box was replaced by the "Link" and "Unlink" buttons... Imagine clicking on "Unlink" by mistake, it would destroy your object with no undo available.

So I removed those two buttons and re-added the list box and I'm a happy builder again.

Aside from that, here are the bug fixes :

- fixed : The Windlight shared region settings added by LL to the viewer recently introduced a way around the prevention against changing environment settings.

- fixed : @getinvworn would sometimes give weird results when a single no-mod item was under a folder which name did not begin with "."

- fixed : When prevented from seeing the location, right-clicking on the ground (Linden land not a prim ground) would make the viewer slow down to a crawl, eventually crashing. Same thing when trying to open the "About Land" window.

Have fun !
