Deploys for the week of 2011-08-15

Recommended Posts

Oskar's on vacation, so I'm filling in for this week's release notes.

Second Life Server (main channel)

2011-08-16, 5:00am: Rolling Restart - Release Notes: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_Server/11

 

Second Life RC BlueSteel

This is a "server hotfix" project.

  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed a crashing bug.
    • Other security fix.

Second Life RC LeTigre

LeTigre is returning to the "Mesh" project this week. LeTigre and Magnum will be running the same server version.

  • Mesh objects can be uploaded
  • Child prims can be set to have no collision shape (do not contribute to collision of object)
  • Objects that use the features above (mesh shapes or non-colliding parts) will have prim cost calculated based on actual impact to the parcel/region rather than simple count.
  • Max prim scale has been raised to 64m on a side
  • New physics engine
    • Overhaul how collision shapes are constructed and stored in memory.
    • 10 cm gap between colliding objects has been removed for most objects:
      • For convex prims (dynamic and static)
      • Concave prims (static only)
      • For small prims ( <~0.2m on a side ) it can't be completely removed so those objects may still exhibit a gap, but it will typically be smaller than it was before the change.
  • Parcel-full return sort order has changed: most recently "changed" get returned first, but still grouped by OTHER, GROUP, and OWNER in that order.

Second Life RC Magnum

Once again, Magnum is on the "Mesh" project this week. There are no changes related to mesh this week; the update just adds the changes listed for the main channel.

See the 'Second Life RC LeTigre' section above to see a general list of changes in Mesh; Magnum and LeTigre will get the same server version.

We will be monitoring this thread during the next week so please feel free to post issues that you feel have been introduced by the new code. Please file a JIRA for issues you find and post the JIRA link into this thread. It really helps us out. When determining if issues are relevant or not research is key. Tracking down exactly the right situation where an issue is occurring greatly speeds up the development process to get fixes in place.

We appreciate your help!

We also have an email list where we communicate upcoming projects and how you can help.

You are more than welcome to attend. Information is here: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Server_Beta_User_Group

 

Update! (2011-08-16 16:10 PDT) :

Due to last minute issues in mesh testing, both the LeTigre and Magnum RC channel updates for this week have been rescheduled for this Thursday (August 18), at 8:00AM and 9:00AM PDT, respectively.  We apologize for the late notice.

Are llLinkSitTarget and llAvatarOnLinkSitTarget implemented on LeTigre and Magnum servers?

I can't get it to work on those, while PRIM_LINK_TARGET, for example, works on Magnum. (from the root prim)
