We are back… The Lindens are back at it… Not much has happened. But soon…
There was no planned update to the main channel. But main channel regions were restarted, at least mine was. It is running version Second Life Server 18.12.05.522294 the same as it has for the last 3 weeks.
Blue Steel is to update to version #19.01.03.522821. This version has additional logging for capturing various region performance criteria. I’ve been noticing a change in performance and region crossing behavior… degrading… I try to do some flying after the Tuesday restarts. Now it isn’t making much difference whether there has been a restart or not. Still lots of problems.
Le Tigre and Magnum will get an update to version #18.12.05.522294. This version has changes to the voice service. Recent DDoS attacks on DNS servers have been causing problems for voice users. So, there may be some improvements to get around messed up DNS.
The Server-Scripting UG was talking about Animesh and Pathfinding. We will start to see more use of Pathfinding as NPCs (non-player character) become more popular. Since Pathfinding hasn’t been in heavy use it has been a low priority for the Lindens. So, there are some known problems and pending bug reports. Those becoming more of a problem now that animesh is out.
