We haven’t had much news coming out of these meetings. This week’s meeting was more informative. See the previous article on Forced Sit.
We also heard about BUG-37692 – llRezObject() and llRezAtRoot() peroidically stop responding unless you’re an estate manager. This bug breaks existing content. If you are having a problem with it, you have this weekend (#38 – Sept 24-25) to add your information in comments.
If you think of the shops that have a ‘rezzer’ in store for their products, you can have an idea of the scope of the problem.
This week there was no rollout to the main channel. We did get a new package for the RC channels. All 3 are getting the same package: 16#16.09.14.319788.
The release notes describe it as; Minor internal changes.
The main viewer is now version 184.108.40.2069463. Formerly this version was the Visual Outfits Browser RC viewer. The previous version was: 220.127.116.118301.
RC Second Life Bento Viewer version 18.104.22.1689688 – Last week Bento was running on a project viewer version 22.214.171.1248969. This version is now a RC, Release Candidate, version.
RC Second Life VLC Viewer version 126.96.36.1999856 – This version has updated from 188.8.131.528504. I suspect this version has just added the VOB features and some bug fixes.
There are no project viewers this morning.
We know from various user group meetings there are some changes and improvements in progress. I expect to see a new RC viewer version and possibly a VIVOX project viewer this week. Also, there is a 64-bit viewer in the works. I have no clue when it make make it to Project or RC status.
While it may seem quite, there is stuff happening.
The main channels are getting a roll today, Tuesday. This update is described as a security update. The release notes describe the update a minor changes, logging changes.

No rollouts this week, main or RC channels. Caleb Linden says they will be returning to the regular schedule of rollouts next week. It is vacation time.
I think this is the third week the main channel region I live in has not been restarted.I think the last restart was 8/9. Caleb has posted that if you region is having problems contact support and ask for a restart or file a JIRA describing the problems.
Second Life: Third Party Viewer Meeting (video)
Current RC viewers are all having elevated crash rates. We’ll see new releases of them with various fixes as the Lindens try to get the crash rates down to what we have with the current default viewer, which dropped the crash rate significantly.
So, we very likely won’t see a viewer promoted to main status this coming week 35.
Under the Pumpkin Moon Hunt
There is a new maintenance viewer coming. It should appear this coming week, but may be not. It could get hung in QA.
Oz Linden is expecting to get the 64-bit version of the viewer out as an RC soon. Oz says it is coming along and they are spending more time on it. There are some ‘corners’ to clean out according to Oz. Continue reading

I enjoy hearing what’s up with the system when there are problems.
This week there are no roll outs to either the main or RC channels. That says there will be none of the normally planned region restarts this week.
Let sleeping dogs lie
The main viewer is version 220.127.116.118301. No change since last week. This seems to be the least crashy of the viewers I’m using. Continue reading
