A roll was made to the main channel Tuesday, #18.10.04.520268. All internal fixes.

The three RC channels and Snack also got updates, #18.10.19.520868 for Blue Steel. Le Tigre and Magnum were not ‘determined’ as to which version they would get. Snack is getting an EEP update, 18.10.19.520844 (?).

There was some mix up in which version of EEP was going out. Some little glitch in operations gave Rider Linden an opportunity to get a newer version of EEP on Snack. So, the 520844 version is probably not the version rolling out. That the region Denby (URL) is running Second Life RC Snack 18.10.20.520891, is a good indication 520891 is the version actually rolled. With the EEP viewer you can see EEP on the main grid.

The fun stuff is still over on the Preview Grid, ADITI.

Sansar Stats – Hamlet Au has an article about how many people are visiting Sansar. Now just under 300,000 per day… sort of. See Sons Of Second Life Status: Sansar Attracting More Website Visits, High Fidelity Attracting More Monthly Social VR Users.

This is about 130,000 more per day than High Fidelity. Interesting.

More interesting is the source of stats. Seems HF gets about three times more traffic from search engines while Sansar gets about eleven times more traffic than HF from social media. Seems like that says something.

The concurrent users suggest even other ideas. HF holds the title in concurrent users, about 10 to 164… Geez, even OpenSim has done better. Sansar is in the 10 to <20 range for concurrent users. Our 28,000 to 48,000± concurrent users per day in SL don’t seem that weak.
