Can't configure nearby chat toasts life time and fading time
Those options are not under PREFERENCES -> Chat any more. So, it's not possible to configure any values and the default is always set. With tabbed instant message (as there is no way to change it any more) this is making Spar almost impossible.
The Notification tab is missing from Chat. I am not sure but it seems that it's a problem with the UI and may be other tabs missing at other places under PREFERENCES.
Is this reproducible under the official Second life viewer?
