There are no rolls to the main channel today.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, a new package will roll to the RC channels, all three get the same package.
This new package has more minor internal changes, supposedly security and crash fixes along with changes to data logging. More interesting is the addition of the new scripting function for forced sit. I find the deploys notice and the release notes in disagreement. But, recent Server Beta UG meetings have been discussing the forced sit function. So, I expect it to be in the package.

The former main viewer was version 126.96.36.1999463 with the Visual Outfits Browser. Today we got version 188.8.131.520331, the VLC RC version of the viewer. This is the one that switches how streaming media (video) is handled in the viewer.
I am looking forward to checking out how it works. I haven’t used this RC. I also removed QT for security reasons, I’m on Windows 10.
Now it is up to builders and content providers in Second Life™ to change their content over to more modern streaming formats.
