Bits

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.

Simon wasn’t giving us any information as to what the Linden meetings was about, other than it was NOT a feature summit. But, new features will likely be discussed at some point. Continue reading

I thought we would be in the no change window all this week. But, the Lindens have decided to roll last week’s RC update to the main channel… or they automated the forum posting like they did the status reports… naw.

♥ Believe in the Magic of Christmas ♥

The package rolling to the main channel is listed as having ‘improved internal server logging’. So, it makes sense to me that there is little likelihood of new bugs being introduced by adding and changing logging features. The week in testing probably revealed no performance change problems for this package. So, why not roll it out?  Continue reading

The main viewer updated to the Project Bento viewer last week, 5.0.0.321958. No change from last week.

RC Second Life Maintenance Viewer version 5.0.1.322219 is an update from last week’s 4.1.3.321792. This probably just catches this version up with the Bento release.
