I've been using Lumiya for some time, and before it even rendered avatars as more than a dummy and is amazing to run on a mobile tablet. I've run SL on a net book which was a terrible experience but given the limitations,Lumiya is remarkable.
Not only that but the developer is pretty open to feedback and has discussed things with me via email several times. Updates are pretty timely as well

Metacam Oh

Does it strike anyone else as strange that the only innovations going on with the SL Product are by anyone other than Linden Lab? Third parties can get SL running on mobile OS but Linden can't? I have to wonder why they still have all these draconian policies in place regarding modding their product and development when they don't even want to be bothered with doing anything new with Second Life. I just don't get the policy.

- Materials
- Server Side Appearance
- User Interest Lists to speed up rezzing (in testing)
- User Experiences (coming very soon)
LL are busier than ever in the last few years improving their product.

Incidentally LL have had SL running on mobile - but they would want to do something with the UI before exploring that further - and they appreciate how good Lumiya is as an alternative as well.
