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

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

There is no info on the RC channels. We are not going to hear until tomorrow.

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

Holiday is over. Lindens are mostly back to work and the no-change-window is open. Things are updating again.

The main channel stays on version #18.06.14.516450. However, regions in the main channel are getting restarts. My home region in the main channel restarted Tuesday morning.

Blue Steel and Magnum will get a Wednesday update to version #18.07.03.517389.

  • Additional Internal tweaks
  • Animesh Support

Le Tigre will roll to version #18.06.22.516968. This is an updated Animesh version.

I thought the Le Tigre version would be the Animesh code with the updates from the current main channel version. I wasn’t too sure sure about that… Fortunately Simon Linden explained it at the Server-Scripting UG.

Black Dragon Poser Get an Update

Black Dragon Poser – NiranV is changing the Poser feature. Again… still… making this version 3.1.8. I think by anyone’s standard it is getting better. In NiranV’s latest post mention is made of working with Nat Linden to make feature changes as they import the tool into the Linden viewer.

Black Dragon 3.1.8 Poser – Showing bone displacement capability

There are permission and usability issues. The Lab has to minimize how handy the feature will be for stealing poses and animations. Plus, noob users need to have a chance to understand how to use it. While it may seem obvious to you, just think back on some of the things you have helped the new to understand.

If you haven’t noticed, NiranV has a Discord Channel.

On Windows 10, you’ll get a warning message when you install the viewer. That is Microsoft being overly cautious with any software they don’t know.

We’ve reached the midpoint of the year… and I forgot to hit the publish button… until now.

The main channel is getting an update to #18.06.14.516450. This update has Internal Fixes and Logging Improvements… so likely more data collection things.

Long Term Memory

Blue Steel, Le Tigre, and Magnum will get an update to #18.06.22.516968. This update is preparation for the release of Animesh. Specifically said to be;

Some land owners are noticing their regions restarting twice when the updates roll out. See BUG-134297Issue with region restarting then restarting again with version change.

Seems one restarts lands the region on a new host and a second restart updates the simulator version it is running. Continue reading

We have a Deploys post this week. It says there is no roll to the main channel this week.

Deciding...

Deciding…

The RC channels Blue Steel, Le Tigre, and Magnum will al roll to version #18.06.06.516064.

The changes are similar to an earlier version of the package;

  • Additional work to support localized Abuse Report categories
  • Shaved a few nanoseconds off a check for each object update, as part of ongoing performance improvements
  • Stopped logging a trivial message
  • Additional Internal fixes

We’ve seen the RC channels ‘un-roll’ the next day a couple of times. So, we can hope this one sticks.

There is work on vehicle region crossing problems. A recent change antidotally seems to have made fast crossings better and slow crossings worse. No quantitative data to evaluate on… Continue reading

There are no updates to the main or RC channels this week. No restarts are planned either.

The updates are still in testing over in ADITI. Mazidox Linden expects to have more information by Thursday’s Server Beta UG meeting.

Viewers

A new main viewer came out late last week. The Maintenance version 5.1.4.515016 is now the default viewer.

Looking back, I didn’t write up much about this version. There are a load of changes and improvements in this version. Check the release notes for ALL the details.

The interesting changes are…

In the Appearance editor we are supposed to have a Wear Only This Outfit. I can’t find any such choice.

Temporary attachments can now be removed. I think the change is these temps now show in the WEARING tab so they can be selected and detached.

Some login problems have been fixed and error messages improved. Continue reading
