Busy with RL last week and looks like this week. The Adobe updates that screwed things are not helping.
Costa Bella 4: Fountain
The main channel is getting an update to version #18.104.22.1681081. This version is apparently the same as last week’s version 22.214.171.1240868, but with some fixes to the logging. That version was all Internal Changes.
Blue Steel and Le Tigre will update to version #18.11.01.521328, listed as about Land impact/streaming costs
Magnum gets version #18.11.01.521329, with Logging improvements and land impact/streaming costs
From the Server-Scripting UG I hear the Snack Channel will get an EEP update. Continue reading →
A roll was made to the main channel Tuesday, #18.10.04.520268. All internal fixes.
The three RC channels and Snack also got updates, #126.96.36.1990868 for Blue Steel. Le Tigre and Magnum were not ‘determined’ as to which version they would get. Snack is getting an EEP update, 188.8.131.520844 (?).
There was some mix up in which version of EEP was going out. Some little glitch in operations gave Rider Linden an opportunity to get a newer version of EEP on Snack. So, the 520844 version is probably not the version rolling out. That the region Denby (URL) is running Second Life RC Snack 184.108.40.2060891, is a good indication 520891 is the version actually rolled. With the EEP viewer you can see EEP on the main grid.
The main channel was updated to version #18.09.20.519894. This version contains code for the Bakes On Mesh feature. None of this update is going to be apparent to users. Sort of infrastructure only changes.
My home region on the main channel did get an update today and shows the above as the running version.
The three RC channels will get version #18.09.24.519940. This is only listed as having ‘Internal Changes’.
I missed the meeting today to have lunch with a friend. So, a bit short on hard news.

The main viewer has upgraded to version 220.127.116.119298. (Release Notes) Code name: Rakomelo. The previous update was in week #34.
There are some new features in this version; in People – Near By you can sort on recent arrivals, fixes group notices so – eliminating the behavior of if I sent one while you are writing one yours would be trashed, new server capabilities for fetching offline IM’s – this is supposed to make delivery more robust, and new capabilities for friend and group actions… So, is this the friends-list-not-sync’ing issue? Not sure… Continue reading →
Lots of interesting news and updates… I’ve combined information from the Third-Party Dev meeting and my regular Tuesday updates. There is normally about two working days between the Third-Party and Server-Scripting meetings. Not much changes in that time. So, I combined them.
The Forum Deploys post says the RC channel roll is to be determined. Rider Linden at the Server-Scripting UG says no RC packages are ready to roll out. We’ll find out Wednesday what actually happens.
He did however, provide a new server package update for EPP on the ADITI side.
He said, “It [EEP server update] will address some validations where FS had much larger ranges of values than the lab did.
I’ve dealt with a cloud speed issue that had annoyed me and I forgot to get in before we sent out the preview.”
Oz Linden at the Friday Third-Party Dev UG announced they will be turning off the UDP Asset Fetch API’s in January. Most viewers no longer use them. But, there may be one or two that do… These API’s do not pass through the CDN servers so are slower and add more load to the region and asset servers.
Simon Linden at the Sever-Scripting UG meeting said the RC roll is still undecided. That wasn’t noted in the Deploys thread. So…

I am not sure, but I think the operating system of the simulators and backend machines have been being updated. Some feel this may have affected various HTTP connections. Simon Linden says this update includes lots of low level updates and changes. So, it is possible.
The main viewer is version 18.104.22.1688593, since week #34.
Second Life Animesh Viewer version 22.214.171.1248949 – Last updated in week #35.
Second Life Bugsplat Viewer version 126.96.36.1999462 – Last updated in week #37. Continue reading →

So, we have some down time ahead. Early Monday morning there was a previous bit of planned down time. 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 →
