The main channel got a roll. And there is a Deploys post. So, version #18.05.07.515224 is now on the main channel. This is the one that adds the new LSL functions for the coming name change.
Blue Steel, Le Tigre, and Magnum are all to be determined. If nothing rolls out, all main grid regions will be running the same version. Or we might see something roll to the RC channels. Continue reading →
Not much news coming out of the Third-Party Developer meeting this week.
Both the Love Me Render Viewer and the Maintenance Viewer are progressing. The Maintenance version is doing a bit better in testing. Either could be the next release, with Maintenance having a small edge.
In the pipeline are the estate management tools improvement, caching stuff to improve cache performance, a set of voice improvements, and various random changes.
Vacation season is starting in the USA. So, there will be schedule and project disruptions as people go on vacation.
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is not viewer related. The Lab mostly already does all GDPR requires. Internal discussions in the Lab have been about how neat it is they Lab has never collected the problem-personal-info GDPR deals with. So, they have very little to do to be GDPR compliant.

The main channel updated to version #18.04.30.515008, this is the version that hopefully improves… not fixes, region crossings. Specifically, “Updates to simulator communication protocols aimed at improving region crossings and teleports.”
Blue Steel, Le Tigre, and Magnum all get the #18.05.07.515224 version. This is the version preparing for the name change feature by adding scripting functions to LSL.
Seems some regions are getting two restarts today. I suspect that is somewhat common.
It’s your move, pawn.
Simon Linden tells us, “…the servers are now doing a better job tracking all the attachments and objects you may be sitting on [when crossing a region]. The goal is to know when the region thinks that’s all done, and the viewer acknowledges it. If that doesn’t happen, it can do better fixing it. Continue reading →
Le Tigre, Magnum, and Snack will get version #18.04.30.515008. This version has the changes to improve regions crossings and teleports. These are changes in how region servers talk to each other. No new user-side toys. Continue reading →
No Deploys post this week. Rider Linden at the Server-Scripting UG told us, “So, The internal fixes on the RCs from last week should be rolling to the main grid this week. Snack is getting a new roll that we hope will address some of the region crossing issues.
Release notes are on the way. We’ve made some changes on the back end with respect to message reliability that we are hoping makes the transitions a bit more reliable.”

If I understand… (if I’m not making sense, that is because I’m not making sense. Medical drugs and lack of good sleep. Bronchitis.) The region crossing related change roll out on AGNI in the Snack RC regions.
Rider, “Also, the name functions are available on my testing regions on Aditi. (Sylveon, Leafeon, etc).”
I think these are the new functions for names from UUID and UUID from name. I doubt you can change your name.
Mazidox Linden, “There is a bunch of regions around a region called “Est Full2” on Aditi that have the relevant code to test region crossing.” Continue reading →
Blue Steel, Le Tigre, and Magnum will update to version #18.04.09.514272. Internal changes and… a fix for BUG-214702 – LSL 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!
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 →
