We have a Deploys post this week. 🙂

The main channel is not getting a roll. I’m showing my home region in the main channel as last restarting 1/16, last Tuesday.

All three RC channels are to get a rollout tomorrow. Version #18.01.17.511913. It is only described as ‘internal fixes’. There was no additional information available from the Server-Scripting UG Meeting.

There is work on region crossings by a resident. See the forum post Vehicles vs. sim crossings, why it’s so awful. Animats could use some help testing region crossing. Also, see the JIRA report SVC-22.

For builders, there is information that only the physics part of the road matters. The physics part of the road should be thick, vertically, and extend past the region edge by a couple of meters.
