The main channel did not get an update. Bummer. I was hoping the increased population change would roll across the grid.
I looked to see if Fantasy Faire has the RC version with the feature running. Nope. I had a lot of trouble crossing regions so, I thought the new version might be the problem..
The County Girl
The RC channels Blue Steel and Magnum are being updated with a new version of the increased population package: 17.04.13.325429. Le Tigre is getting a package with internal tool changes: 17.04.21.325687. Continue reading →
The main channel got an update Tuesday. This is the one with; several internal fixes and two new internal logging modes, another adjustment to fix issues with offline IM and Group Notice delivery reliability, and fixes an issue where large numbers of objects could be returned after a rolling restart.
Graveyard of the Butterflies – Monument
The RC channels are getting two new packages. One is the one with increased population limits. That goes on Blue Steel and Le Tigre. The other has not been announced (TBD). It will be on Magnum.
At the Server-Scripting UG they claim the TBD is a top-secret project. You’ll have to decide if they are messing with us or being serious. Both are possible. Continue reading →
This week there is no planned roll of the main channel servers.
Destination: Gates of Melancholy
The RC channels are getting a new package and will roll on Wednesday. According to the ‘deploys’ thread they all get the same package. This package includes:
Several internal fixes and two new internal logging modes
Another adjustment to fix issues with offline IM and Group Notice delivery reliability
Fixes an issue where large numbers of objects could be returned after a rolling restart
My understanding was the change for Estate Owner and Manager control of parcel access in a region was to be in this release but, I see no mention of it. Last week Oz, Grumpity, Caleb, and Mazidox Linden were all talking about it. Continue reading →
The Lindens have been upgrading the server operating system. Mazidox Linden describes it, “For those of you who don’t attend regularly or just missed that meeting, DRTSIM-323 is an upgrade to the simulator operating system to bring it up to more modern standards. It won’t change anything you should notice, and could change anything, at the same time.”

This is like a user changing from Windows 7 to 10. Everything working on 7 is supposed to work on 10. But, until you try it, you don’t know. Continue reading →
The server side of the new Estate Owner and Estate Manager (EO & EM) is on the ADITI (Preview) grid. It was being discussed at the Server Beta UG meeting Thursday.
Arcade Express ..Wonderous Love
This new feature is in server version DRTSIM-343 in ADITI. We know it as version 17.03.31.325149 in the main grid (AGNI), which is the current RC release running on all three RC channels. But, we don’t yet have a viewer with which to access the changes. That is ‘work’ in progress. Continue reading →
Caleb Linden sort of posts the new deploy information for server software. Those posts have gotten progressively shorter providing less and less information. We are down to it being a pasted in URL to the release notes.
Rustic Kitchen 3
This week we did get a roll to the main channel. The only stated change is a tweak to the ‘asset metrics stats’. I think this is for the change to deliver more assets by the Content Delivery Network (CDN). They are collecting information pre-change to CDN. You’ll see the new viewer needed to support this change in the viewer’s list. Continue reading →
There was no roll to the main channel today. A roll to the RC channels is expected Wednesday. The change is listed as;
All three RC channels are scheduled for 2017-03-29 update; RC Bluesteel, LeTigre, Magnum.
Changes: Added and tweaked asset metrics stats logging

I know the Lindens are working in updates to the render cost figures. They are also changing delivery of more assets to be via Content Delivery Networks (CDN). So, I’m not sure which effort is supported by the tweaks… both? Continue reading →
