We will be monitoring this thread as the code gets released, so feel free to note any observations you have about the server updates.  If you have a specific bug you'd like to report, please file a Jira.

So all three RCs are running on the same code?

Because there's just been a group notice in SL Aviation claiming special problems with vehicles on the Magnum RC, and advising people avoid Magnum RC sims.

I can't say that I have noticed anything special myself. And if all the RCs really are the same it sounds like somebody is mistaken.

Maybe I should tell the guy to submit a JIRA instead of putting out scare stories.

Aeon already filed the problem on Magnum with vehicle scripts resetting on region crossing.

https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/BUG-10576

Going by http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_RC_Magnum/15#15.10.23.306550 , Magnum has an extra "Blocks griefer attack method" fix.

Magnum is running  15.10.23.306550 & BlueSteel & LeTigre are running 15.10.23.306566.

Above says all RCs are on the same code though, so... your guess is as good as mine  ;)

Oh Dear (again)

A careful look at the Server-Release codes on the Thread heading post from Caleb for the RC channels show that Magnum is indeed running a different batch of code to the other RCs despite the wording.

I would hazard a guess that it's nothing more than an editing blooper, but as with so much from LL of late, it simply adds to the confusion.

The general quality of documentation in Second Life is pretty poor, starting with how the Lindens tell new people how to get things working.

I find myself wondering what the point of RCs is if they don't tell people what the new code is supposed to affect. It seems a lousy QA process, and it isn't helped by the way JIRA seems to be written as a tool for managers of programmers.

This particular instance is a simple enough problem to fix. But it does leave me wondering what else Caleb Linden might be missing out.

Aeon Voom's bug report appears to have been resolved as a duplicate of Maint-5193, which is doesn't seem possible for me to access. I'm not sure that I could cope with the content of that, JIRA reports can get seriously unreadable and seem to get past jargon into the territory of a cant or argot. We don't even get told when it was first reported, and whether it really is limited to Magnum.
