flexible sculpties

Cool SL Viewer v1.19.0.5 release 50 (stable, legacy renderer)
Cool SL Viewer v1.21.6.0 release 17 ((stable, Windlight renderer)
Cool SL Viewer v1.22.10.0 release 2 (experimental)

Too tired to write much, just copy-paste from Henri
They allow to build flexible sculpties. BEWARE: flexible sculpties introduce a *lot* of lag on the viewer side: use sparsely !
Such prims can be seen in other viewers as well, but they introduce even more lag in them since they don't have the optimized code provided by the patch.
Note: this feature may not be keeped in future releases, depending on its impact on lag, and especially if a more elegant solution is not found (for now the viewer is transferring the sculpty texture data between the GPU and the CPU for every frame of animation).

Flexible sculpties cause lag?

Better not've mentioned them at all, because now every stupid little script kiddie will be making entire sims just out of them.
