We got a roll to the main channel this week. This is the package with Simulator Fixes and a fix for BUG-9504. There is nothing else available about those improvements.
WB BarDeco in Kekeland or Kekeland in BarDeco !! Awesome
The RC Channels will get one update on Blue Steel. The other channels, La Tigre, and Magnum, will continue running the package that rolled to the main channel. So, all regions except Blue Steel will be on the same package. Continue reading
There was no roll to the Second Life™ servers’ main channel. The update running on Blue Steel last week had to be rolled back. So, it was not available for promotion.

This week the RC channels are all three getting the same new package. This one has some Simulator Fixes and a fix for BUG-9504 “Clicking on any object that affects the navmesh while in mouselook dirties the navmesh”. Remember, the Navmesh is a thing in Pathfinding.
It isn’t contagious. This problem passed quickly, I think. I didn’t run into it, so it is hard for me to know. But, it revealed another part of how the Second Life™ system works.
Knowledge is not everything…

Other bit of news from the Third Party Developer’s meeting (7/31):
RSS Feed for Grid Status
RSS feed for Grid Status is moving to new platform. The URL will not change just the format is changing from RSS1 to RSS2. But, if you read the status pages, the change is visually significant.
The setup is said to be coming soonish, but seems to be working now. A temp URL will let TPD’s test the feed. See: http://beta.status.secondlifegrid.net which redirects me to https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Status-Grid/bg-p/status-blog. Continue reading
This Tuesday the package running on the RC channels moved to the main channel. That package was said to be Simulator fixes… whatever they were.
As of late Tuesday (5+PM PT) there was no information about what would or if any would roll to the RC channels Wednesday.

Presumably the Lindens are still working on the Experience Tools database…
There was no Second Life Server-Scripting UG Meeting this week.
The main channel got last week’s package of simulator fixes. The 3 RC channels all get the same but new package on Wednesday. This package is also about simulator fixes.
This breaks the every other week rollout pattern that has been building up.
I think we all have questions about Project Sansar, aka SL 2.0. On the 14th a forum thread was started titled ‘Ask the CEO.’ There is a load of questions and answers. See: Ask the CEO.
Ebbe is not talking about the avatar skeleton. Answering a direct question about whether skeletons other than the basic avatar will be available he answered ‘say tuned.’ Continue reading
