Second Life News 2018 w23

From the Third-Party Dev UG meeting June 1, 2018 we have some news. Plus, the usual stuff.

Severs

The main channel moves up to version #18.05.25.515749. This version includes;

  • Added server-side support for an upcoming capability to deliver estate information to estate owners and managers
  • Internal fixes

Once the Estate Tools improvements are added to the viewer, the tools will be live. The improvements are mostly about easier editing of ban lists.

The three RC channels get version #18.05.30.515812. This version has a few user visible changes;

  • 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
  • Internal fixes

Not long ago we were teased with information that not all ‘internal fixes’ are security things. Some are to support SL15B surprises. 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

It is Tuesday (well, would have been if I had remembered to post this…) and the main channel was updated to version #18.03.14.513292. The changes are the ever-occurring Internal fixes then logging to help diagnose an issue with in-world HTTP servers returning HTTP 503 (BUG-214702), adding a new capability to request IMs that were delivered to the requesting agent while the agent was offline, and adding a new capability to request the most up to date list of abuse report categories.

Until we have a viewer update that can use the new caps, we can’t see or use the new additions.

Wednesday, the Blue Steel channel will be updated with version #18.03.17.513365, ‘internal changes’.

Le Tigre and Magnum may get an update. The Lindens had not decided on a version as I write this. The entry for these channels is a little confusing as they show the #18.03.14.513292 version, which I suspect many will assume is an update going to these channels. But it went to the main channel and may remain in these RC channels. Continue reading

The main channel gets a restart but no update. It remains on version #18.02.12.512536, which rolled out the end of February.

My region restarted 3/13, so it hasn’t restarted this week, at least as of 11:30 Am SLT.

Le Tigre and Magnum update to #18.03.14.513292. Internal fixes, logging to help diagnose an issue with in-world HTTP servers returning HTTP 503 (BUG-214702), adds a new capability to request IMs that were delivered to the requesting agent while the agent was offline, and adds a new capability to request the most up to date list of abuse report categories.

These ‘adds’ will require a viewer that can use them. Which I assume is somewhere in the QA pipeline. Continue reading

Blue Steel may get a new package Wednesday. The Deploys notice says they have not yet decided.

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

I thought we would be in the no change window all this week. But, the Lindens have decided to roll last week’s RC update to the main channel… or they automated the forum posting like they did the status reports… naw.

The package rolling to the main channel is listed as having ‘improved internal server logging’. So, it makes sense to me that there is little likelihood of new bugs being introduced by adding and changing logging features. The week in testing probably revealed no performance change problems for this package. So, why not roll it out?  Continue reading
