The main channel is not updating this week. It will continue to run version #17.09.01.508236.
Blue Steel and Le Tigre channels will update to version #17.09.14.508549. This version addresses: Improvements to address some problems that could degrade simulator performance in rare cases.
Magnum will update to version #17.09.14.508533. It fixes BUG-100505 – “llGetEnv (“agent_limit”) is returning an empty string in Magnum, Le Tigre and Blue Steel regions.”
The only interesting additional information from the Server-Scripting UG meeting is that work on the servers includes an effort to reduce the recent outages.
There is an increasing awareness of AO problems. More people are talking about having to turn off their AO for furniture and other animations to work correctly. In the discussion BUG-11501 – If two animations have the same priority, it’s arbitrary which one will take precedence came up. (No fix in LL Viewer – FS has a fix, next release?) Speculation is that fix may cause the problem, so it would likely be just FS users seeing the problem.
AO’s that used to work with dance balls now have to be turned off. I’m not sure this is a new problem. I’ve always had problems with some of my walking or standing animations overriding dancing animations.
I’ve been curious if the New Grid Wide Experience the Lindens recently blogged about was a step toward providing grid wide experience keys. Oz Linden cleared that up saying, “We’ve actually always had the ability to issue grid wide keys, we just have not done it. This new use by the Moles will give us all some experience with how it works out in practice. Whether or not that will lead to us making them available to residents, I don’t know.”
So, there is a possibility there will someday be grid wide experience keys. But, it sounds as if it is a possibility, not a goal. At least for now.
