Tuesday the main channel updated to version #18.03.29.513939. Internal changes…

Blue Steel, Le Tigre, and Magnum will update to version #18.04.09.514272. Internal changes and… a fix for BUG-214702LSL HTTP In returning fairly frequent 503 errors.

The capability for handling offline messaging is being worked on. The cap has been improved but there is a problem with Friend Requests. If one is sent while you are offline, there is no way to accept it that works. Being fixed.

Winters back.. Run!

Winters back… Run!

As it is the underlying system that allows Friend Requests can fail in several ways, it may take some time to fix the problem as it is a base system.

Oz Linden: The test channels [on ADITI] have the new improved throttles for LSL HTTP-in that I’ve discussed on the forums (and documented on the wiki)

Rider Linden: Those [test channels] are currently available on Aditi: Umbreon and the adjoining region.  But Mazidox may have put them on other regions as well. Continue reading

From the Server and Scripting UG we hear about more region crossing work. Simon Linden is doing some work on crossings. BUG-214653After half-unsit at failed region crossing on vehicle due to network lag, “Unsit” button will not work.

Crossing regions at speed… fast cars, planes, boats, and motorcycles, have a big problem. I was recently testing an Apolon helicopter. Great fun. But, region crossings are an annoyance. Continue reading

It is Tuesday (well, would have been if I had remembered to post this…) and the main channel was updated to version #18.03.14.513292. The changes are the ever-occurring Internal fixes then logging to help diagnose an issue with in-world HTTP servers returning HTTP 503 (BUG-214702), adding a new capability to request IMs that were delivered to the requesting agent while the agent was offline, and adding a new capability to request the most up to date list of abuse report categories.

Until we have a viewer update that can use the new caps, we can’t see or use the new additions.

Wednesday, the Blue Steel channel will be updated with version #18.03.17.513365, ‘internal changes’.

Le Tigre and Magnum may get an update. The Lindens had not decided on a version as I write this. The entry for these channels is a little confusing as they show the #18.03.14.513292 version, which I suspect many will assume is an update going to these channels. But it went to the main channel and may remain in these RC channels. Continue reading

The main channel gets a restart but no update. It remains on version #18.02.12.512536, which rolled out the end of February.

My region restarted 3/13, so it hasn’t restarted this week, at least as of 11:30 Am SLT.

Le Tigre and Magnum update to #18.03.14.513292. Internal fixes, logging to help diagnose an issue with in-world HTTP servers returning HTTP 503 (BUG-214702), adds a new capability to request IMs that were delivered to the requesting agent while the agent was offline, and adds a new capability to request the most up to date list of abuse report categories.

These ‘adds’ will require a viewer that can use them. Which I assume is somewhere in the QA pipeline. Continue reading

We get just ‘bits’ of news today (Thursday-Friday) as there is no Content Creators’ meeting this week. There is a third-party developer meeting Friday, I think.

Tuesday there was no Deploys post until late in the day. The main channel was restarted. No rollout of new software. I had guessed that was the case.

We didn’t get a Deploys post this week. My main channel region did get a restart. My region is running version #18.02.12.512536. This is a version released the end of February. So, I assume my region was just restarted not updated.

But, no one knows much about what is going on. Simon Linden at the Server-Scripting UG has nothing for us.

We’ll see if there is a restart on the RC channels tomorrow.

We were supposed to get a new project viewer for Bakes-On. We didn’t so that suggests it did not make it through QA.

Also, an EEP (Enhanced Environment Project) project viewer is expected.

I’m pressed for time. So, gotta go. More details when I dig them out.

Plus, my good mouse died… R.A.T. 7 RIP. 🙁  SUCKS!
