RLV 2.9.22

Hi !

Here is the latest version of the RLV, I'm releasing it now to stay up to date with Linden Lab's latest additions, the most visible being the "Worn" tab in the inventory window, I know FS has been featuring it for years, it was high time it made its way into the official codebase.

Plus a few fixes, including one that was really annoying the hell out of me : sometimes the hovertexts from your own HUDs would appear on your snapshots as if they were in the world, but only when your vision was restricted. This one completely eluded me until only recently, and I finally fixed it. To be specific, you had to be looking towards the coordinates (0, 0, 0) in the sim, regardless of the distance. The reason for this was that when the vision was restricted, the HUDs were rendered twice, once on your screen in an orthographic view (to be exact, at an infinite distance), and a second time at (0, 0, 0). This is fixed now and this will be a relief for people like me who take a lot of snapshots while playing a scene.

Another bug that had been annoying me for a while was the "Typing" tag not going away when you're gagged in the middle of a sentence. That one is fixed too, finally.

Here is the complete list of changes (not including the ones brought in by LL of course) :

- fixed : Coordinates appear in some window even when restricted from seeing the location.

- fixed : HUD hovertexts were visible on snapshots when the vision was restricted, but only when looking towards 0, 0, 0, regardless of the distance.

- fixed : We could open a notecard under certain circumstances even when restricted from viewing notecards. The same preventive fix is applied for scripts and textures.

- fixed : When receiving a send chat restriction while typing, the "Typing" tag would never disappear until the restriction was lifted.
