Linden Lab Blocks Emerald from tomorrow

In a not unexpected development, Linden Lab just announced that they will block the Emerald viewer from accessing the Second Life grid from 10am PT on Wednesday 10th.  In addition an email want out at least to recent Emerald users signed by Joe Linden and reproduced below


Emerald Viewer Blocked From Second Life
Dear Second Life Resident,

As of 10am PT Wednesday, September 8, the Emerald Viewer will be blocked from logging in to Second Life as a result of violations of our Policy on Third Party Viewers. Residents who have been using any version of the Emerald Viewer will need to use a different Viewer to access Second Life.

You can download the official Second Life Viewer, developed by Linden Lab, here.
Or, you can learn more about alternative Viewers, developed by third parties, here.

Please be aware that attempting to circumvent our blocking to access Second Life with a banned Viewer is a violation of the Policy on Third Party Viewers and may result in the loss of one’s account. For more information, please read the blog post.
