The main channel gets the package #18.06.06.516064 running on the RC channels last week, which has;
- Additional work to support localized Abuse Report categories
- Shaved a few nanoseconds off a check for each object update, as part of ongoing performance improvements
- Stopped logging a trivial message
- Internal fixes
Wednesday the RC channel Blue Steel gets version #18.06.14.516474. This is the Animesh version previously running in ADITI.
- Animesh Support!
- Find the latest Animesh Viewer here.
The server-side code has been running for sometime and according to Lindens is stable. However, the viewer is a project viewer. A couple of issues remain. When those get fixed we’ll likely see the viewer move to RC status.
Once the viewer goes to RC then third-party viewers can release their version of the Animesh Viewer. This may be the feature holding back a release of the next Firestorm Viewer. But, I’m guessing.
You’ll likely find some third-party viewers already have Animesh support. Technically those are ‘experimental’ versions. Main versions are supposed to wait for the Linden RC release. But, what fun is that?
The Le Tigre and Magnum RC channels get version #18.06.14.516450. This update includes the ever-exciting Internal Fixes and Logging Improvements. Simon Linden tells us most of these changes are for collecting information on region crossings.
The Main viewer for SL is version 184.108.40.2065811. The Unloop viewer is still around. It apparently is only for those people with 32-bit systems burnt by the 5.1.5 release so they could recover.
Second Life Maintenance Viewer version 220.127.116.116459 – This is an update of a previous version of the same RC 18.104.22.1685927 released in week #23. Code name: Pálinka. The release notes are here. There are a bunch of fixes, over two dozen.
Second Life Unloop Viewer version 22.214.171.1245965 – Released week #24.
Second Life Project 360 Snapshot Viewer version 126.96.36.1995934 – Last updated in week #10.
Second Life Project Animesh Viewer version 188.8.131.526525 – This is an update of the previous version 184.108.40.2065420 released in week #16. This viewer can be used and will handle the Animesh in Blue Steel regions.
If you make animesh while in Blue Steel and then take it to region outside the channel, you will get script errors. Only Blue Steel regions know about the new LSL functions for Animesh. When animesh items are returned to Blue Steel the scripts will have to be restarted.
Second Life Project Bakes On Mesh Viewer version 220.127.116.116270 – This also is a new version this week. The previous version 18.104.22.1683936 was released in week #14.
There is news that a new Voice RC version is coming. Oz Linden has new code from Vivox. So, soon a new voice maintenance update will be out.
Yes… there is. But, I’m rushing. So that’s all for now.
