The main channel is getting an update today. It is the server maintenance package that ran on all 3 release candidate channels last week. This is the package with the new object return scripting functions, the Pathfinding change to keep characters within a parcel, fix rendering of neighboring regions, and another fix for the HTTP-in-bound connection problems.
The release candidate channels will all get the same new server maintenance package tomorrow, Wednesday.
This package includes a fix to llApplyImpulse, which is/was only working in the root prim. If used in a child prim, it would work after the script was compiled in-world, meaning while the containing object is rezzed. If the object has the script and is rezzed from inventory, it fails.
A new scripting function has been added: string llXorBase64(string str1, string str2). This fixes a problem with the previous function returning the wrong result. Now this works the same as: llXorBase64StringsCorrect().
A feature I don’t understand has been added: max_materials_per_transaction to /simulator/features capabilities… In the SL system there are servers that handle API’s to provide various services. I am assuming this is a limit that has been added to one of those services. But, I’ll have to ask someone.
The regions remain open until June 29th. The festivities are over, no dancing, parties, or concerts.
Crap Mariner has posted a map of the regions with his rating on them, good, bad, or ugly… You can find here: Crap’s Map. Thanks to Martin RJ for the tip.
