The main channel is not getting an update this week. The RC channels are. All three will get the same package. It contains some Script Fixes and Minor internal improvements.
We know from the Third Party Developers meeting that the Lindens are working on server side changes related to griefing issues. The first thing about grief fixing is you don’t talk about grief fixes.
As of 5PM SLT/PT the RC viewers have not updated nor has the main release viewer version updated. But, there is a good chance we will see something happen this week. But, maybe not… We just have to wait and see.
Hamlet has an article up about not seeing much in the way of demand for the new VR headsets. The indicators of interest are all weak. See: Even Most Core Gamers Don’t Seem Very Interested in VR.
Reddit is a good indicator of how many people are interested in something. Some think not. But, I do and I acknowledge that while many people may be interested in something, if there is nothing to TALK about or QUESTIONS that need answering, we don’t see much activity on Reddit. That may well be the case with Oculus and VR in general.
Avatar Rendering Complexity
The SL Wiki just updated this topic. See: Avatar Rendering Complexity.
The change was a minor change to a link to the Knowledge Base. Its target is: Avatar Rendering Complexity. The counterpart to the Wiki, I suppose.
I am hoping the updating of the Wiki and KB is indicative of the Quick Graphics RC Viewer being nearer to completion.
