I was curious what Linden Homes look like these days. They have changed. They are nice. Finding them to look at is a bit trick. The Linden Homes stuff on the website is here: Customize Your Home. I’m not sure this link will work for everyone. It is in your Dashboard->Account->Premium Membership->Explore Your Linden Home. They have pictures in the website. But, I wanted to SEE the homes.

The Main channel was restarted with version #17.11.11.510664. This update includes Internal Fixes and a fix for BUG-139176 Issue with OBJECT_REZZER_KEY reporting incorrectly after linking and delinking prims. This version has run on the RC channels for a couple of weeks.

There will be no updates to the RC channel this Wednesday. The next day is a holiday in the USA. So, the RC channels will continue to run the packed just promoted to the main channel.

The internal fixes are typically security fixes and data collection changes. Recent some of those changes had to do with various copy exploits. Simon Linden says they have caught a bunch of people trying to use those exploits.

However, there are still exploits allowing copying without the Lab being able to detect it. So, Simon asks that people keep filing JIRA and Abuse Reports. Lindens are still working on closing the exploits. So, the reports guide their work. Help by filing a report, if you have actionable information. Continue reading

This morning I’m not sure if we are getting a rollout for the main channel. My ‘region restart detector’ isn’t showing a restart this morning. Actually, no restart since 9/26.

There was no Deploys-post for this week until about 11:30 AM PT. A couple of people are complaining in the forum about the lack of any information this week. We’ll see if they show up at the UG meeting.

Caleb or Mazidox Linden usually post the server updates in the forum and wiki. No posts either place as of early this morning.

From last week, we know the RC releases were explained as ‘internal fixes’. If there is a roll to the main channel it will be one of the 2 RC’s running this past week.

UPDATE

We did get a post so my post is a bit scrambled.

#17.10.06.509394 went to the main channel. However, my home region as of 1:45 PM PT is not showing a restart.

#17.10.13.509701 will go to Blue Steel, Le Tigre, and Magnum Wednesday.

These both have only internal fixes listed. Continue reading

Main channel updates to #17.09.22.508905. This version has improvements to email sending, requiring you to have verified your email address. I am a bit confused if they have activated this feature making verification mandatory or not.

Oops – Land Impact Increase

Seems the system had a problem last week. There is a discussion about it on SLUniverse. After a restart, people were getting stuff returned like crazy. It is hard to know how wide spread the problem may have been. Few people are writing anything Google can find.

People are reporting stores jumping from 40 Land Impact (LI) to 400 LI. No small problem.  Continue reading

Also, Shoutcast apps are breaking. See Oz Linden’s post in Scripting: MIME Type changes for HTTP with LSL. Expect more screams when the RC channels roll.
