New features for Second Life include vastly improved graphics and lighting, quicker texture loading, a reworked user interface, better in-client communication tools, Facebook sharing, improved shopping, and Oculus Rift support. That last addition is still on the way and one can only image what strange uses folks will find for it. Good for them!
