Hamlet at New World Notes points us to a job listing that suggests the Lab is considering developing a viewer for iOS and Android. See Linden Lab Creating IOS & Android Versions Of SL, Job Listing Suggests. The job listing is here: Senior Mobile App Dev.

Some points in the listing lead to speculation the iOS and Android support would be a server side render streamed to the devices. A Bright Canopy sort of thing. If that is the direction, would it be a monthly charged service or a Premium benefit?

SL Third-Party Dev Meeting 2018 w32

Not many attending last Friday… Some news mostly updates.

The Bugsplat RC Viewer should be identical to default viewer. The only difference is it uploads crash reports to the Bugsplat system. The Lindens are wrapping up their evaluation. There is no information pre-evaluation on where this is going. Oz Linden through it was going well. But, until the numbers and Linden-users’ evals are in no can know.

There is a Voice RC Viewer out and another in QA that uses a newer Vivox SDK. In the newer one voice crashes recover automatically.

Oz tells us there are 3 other viewer candidates likely to appear this week (#33).

The Animesh RC will get an update. Another Rendering changes version is coming. A new Maintenance version is in the wings waiting for a simulator change – the offline communication thing. The point here is to be more reliable in delivering messages at login, which were sent to you while you are offline.

Also, there are 3 Project viewers; the Estate Management Tools’ new features for the ban list, for which they are looking for feedback. There is the Snapshot Viewer which has no change, but they hope to get back to soon. For now, they are likely working on the Facebook problem with snapshots not uploading. The whole world seems to be on FB’s case. Continue reading

The main channel is being updated today (Aug 7) with version #18.07.20.518082.  This is the Animesh version we had hopped to see roll out last month. We now have Animesh grid wide. However, we only have a project viewer for Animesh.

This version ran on Le Tigre and Magnum last week.

Down to earth from a special place

Blue Steel, Le Tiger, and Magnum RC channels are being updated to version #18.07.20.518086. This version is about Internal Fixes. It has Animesh too. It isn’t clear at this point if it is the same animesh as is on the main channel.

This version ran on Blue Steal last week. I am guessing the fixes in it are being tested with the Animesh changes this week.

Several people have noticed multiple restarts this morning. My home region restarted 3 times. About 45 minutes between restarts. Times are GMT 11:21, 12:30, and 13:14 (6:14 AM SLT). Continue reading

Second Life – Third-Party Dev Meeting 2018 w30

Short meeting. Linden engineers were in meetings and not moving a lot of code the last couple of weeks. There has only been 4 working days since the last Dev meeting 2 weeks ago.

The Bugspat Viewer is out in RC. The Lindens are testing a new crash reporting system.

The maintenance Viewer got a couple of more fixes.

The push is to get an Animesh Viewer out in RC form is on.

Estate Management Changes – Still getting a couple of parts completed.

No problems associated with the Firestorm 5.1.7 update. Yay!

BUG-225157 – [RC Blue Steel 18.07.17.517953] Adjusting specular horizontal offset also adjusts specular vertical offset on Blue Steel regions only – The fix is in QA.

EEP is in progress. However, it is held up, as is BoM, by an inventory update. Those inventory fixes move slowly. Once those changes are done the EPP and BoM changes can be made.

The Group Notices for offline catching is updating and still being worked on. The next server-side update is in QA.

That is about it.

There is no Server-Scripting UG meeting this week. Seems the SL Summit meeting preempts it. Nor is there a deploys post this week.

However, my in-world monitor says my main channel region was restarted today. That region is running version 18.06.14.516450. This is the same version it ran last week. So, no roll out just a restart.

From last week’s Beta Server UG meeting we know there are no new versions expected to roll out to the RC channels.

Second Life Bugsplat Viewer version 5.1.7.518003 – This is a new RC viewer version. The release notes describe the viewer version as;

This viewer should be functionally identical to the current release viewer, save that if it crashes, the crash report is sent to BugSplat rather than to Linden’s crash reporting system. Continue reading

Today we found out they ran into problems with the Animesh rollout. There was something going on with the physics shape of mesh, not animesh, mesh. So, they are working on that. Continue reading
