Deploys for the week of 2011-10-10

Recommended Posts

Second Life Server (main channel)
BlueSteel gets promoted with the "Faster Scripts" project this week. Changes were made to speed up certain LSL functions. Mmost notably Mono llGet*() calls that access object parameters (such as llGetMas() or llGetPos()) but don't actually change any object parameters, since most of those calls have built-in delays that automatically throttle the rate at which they can loop. This week's update also includes a crash fix and a fix for world map search for estate-limited avatars.  There are more details in the release notes link below.

Second Life RC LeTigre
LeTigre will have the same project this week, with agent inventory service updates.  Users of viewer 2.5.1 or above (or those using thirrd party viewers which have merged in 2.5.1 or above) should see a speed increase when fetching inventory.  This server version also includes support for Marketplace Direct Delivery, which should improve reliability when buying and selling items on the Marketplace.

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.
I appreciate your help. Have a good week!

p.s. If you are interested in helping test SecondLife in beta please join the group "Second Life Beta" in-world. We also have an email list where we communicate upcoming projects and how you can help. ( https://lists.secondlife.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/server-beta ) Once a week we meet on ADITI to discuss new features, new bugs, new fixes, and other fun stuff. You are more than welcome.

Maxine, is this a persistent issue that you always see? Are your friends having the same problems? Do you know if you have the problem on some regions and not on others? The more info that you can give us the better chance we have to find the problem.

The Magnum release notes were originally missing a few jira issues under the bugfixes section:

* SVC-7294 The simulator is too strict when llGiveInventory() adds restricted-permission items to fullperm attachments which already contained other restricted-permission items

* SVC-7339 Performance issues on LeTigre 11.09.23.241511 (and Main Channel)

* SVC-7289 llCastRay() returns RCERR_CAST_TIME_EXCEEDED on small parcels.

 

:matte-motes-whistle: We forgot about the new features in this week's RC Magnum.  I've just added them to the release notes:

* 4 new parameters for llGetObjectDetails(): OBJECT_PRIM_EQUIVALENCE, OBJECT_SERVER_COST, OBJECT_STREAMING_COST, OBJECT_PHYSICS_COST

I see you released scripting features that effect the majority of vehicles on the Blue Steel server when most vehicle builders are on the magnum or Le Tigra servers.

This past week, experiencing VERY bad performance on Cape Romano and frequent sim crashing, typically twice a day.  Never like this before this week.  Are we *really* the only ones with this?
