At last week’s Beta Server group meeting they were discussing the next coming package. It will have the change to CDN (Content Delivery Network) of more assets. Something is causing it to fail to grant capabilities to users. I could cam into a failed region but, not enter the region.  Continue reading

Now that the SL Forum is back we are getting the Deploy notices.

There was no update on the main channel this Tuesday. Wednesday the RC channels got a new package. This in the same line as previous packages:

  • Added a new internal logging output
  • Changes to increase stability and security

We can assume that previous logging is leading to places where code can be optimized and processes improved. But, we aren’t hearing much more than that.  Continue reading

Servers

Who knows? The Second Life blog/forum is still off line. There is no ETA for its return. Every week or so they post in Grid Status about it being down. Duh! And that it is taking longer than expected to get it going. The excuse is they want to be sure they get it right… the post must be written by a former politician… They blew the time estimate. Software developers ALWAYS run into unexpected problems.

The Grid status seems to be on automatic so, update or not it tells us there is an update. My region device tells me the main channel region I live in has not restarted since 2/24. So, no roll to main channel today (Tuesday) as of 10 AM SLT/PT. Continue reading

This week (Tuesday) the main channel is not being updated or restarted. The RC channels are getting an update and that requires a restart.

Mazidox Linden writes the Deploys announcement even more briefly than Caleb did. Comparing the version number going to each of the three RC channels it appears they are all getting the same package.

The Release Notes list some improvements and a known bug.  Continue reading

There seems to be a change in the Server updates side of things. Mazidox Linden is now writing the Deploys notice in the SL forum and conducting the Server Beta UG meeting. I like his style in handling the meeting.

The main channels are being restarted today. But, just restarted. No new package.

The RC channels will get a new package. But, as today is the first working day of this week, Mazidox did not have the release notes for the new package. We should see that later… today? this week?  Continue reading

Bits

Not much news coming out this week.

There is the Linden Valentine Party: Hug and Dunk Lindens on Valentine’s Day at Isle of View! There will be Lindens there again after 2 PM SLT.

Second Life: News, Bento…

There just isn’t much news this last week. There was no Server-Scripting (Tuesday), Content Creators (Bento – Thursday), or Sever Beta (Thursday) user group meetings. Seems the Lindens are tasked with being at internal meetings this week. Or… they are out protesting Trump…

Server

The main channel got an update today (Tuesday). This is the package that ran on the RC channels the previous week. With the changes:

  • Follow up to fix BUG-3286 “Can’t move object” fail notifications
    • More cosmetic fixes pending
  • Enhanced logging
  • Minor internal server enhancements

And Simon Linden told us there were fixes to chat IM’s. Those may have been made in parts of the backend of the system and not in the server/simulator. Hard to know.
