Server Deployments Week #21

As always, please refer to the server deployment thread for the latest information and updates.

There was a fast-tracked security update deployed to the LeTigre RC channel on Friday, May 20th. This update was also deployed as a server maintenance package to the Main (SLS) channel on Tuesday, May 24th.

On Wednesday, May 25th, all three RC channels will be updated with a server maintenance package which combines the security update plus a new crash fix.

SL Viewer

A new Maintenance RC viewer entered the release channel on Monday, May 23rd. Version includes a modest but useful set of 24 fixes and updates to the viewer.

The Inventory Message RC viewer updated to version on May 23rd. This viewer sees the removal of deprecated and unused UDP inventory messaging mechanisms from the viewer code. This update sees the RC merged with the Quick Graphics release viewer.

The remaining official viewer remain unchanged from the end of week #20:

  • Project Bento (avatar skeleton extensions), version, dated May 5th – this build contains several updates related to joint offsets and meshes and slider changes
  • Oculus Rift project viewer, version, dated October 13, 2014 – Oculus Rift DK2 support
  • Obsolete platform viewer version dated May 8, 2015 – provided for users on Windows XP and OS X versions below 10.7.

Other Items

Visual Outfits  Browser

The Visual Outfits Browser viewer, which I last mentioned in February, is still moving forward, and might be approaching either project viewer or RC viewer status. It is designed to provide a means by which users can store and browse images associated with their outfits in inventory, simplifying the act of identifying an outfit prior to wearing it.

Those wishing to build it themselves can do so via the public code repository.

Note this viewer isn’t intended to work like popular RLV-driven wardrobes, where you can browse images of outfit then click on one to wear it; rather it is more of a visual aide-memoire on what he imaged outfits look like.

Aditi Issues

There has been some improvement on Aditi following the issues reported in week #20. BUG-16714 has been resolved, and it is hoped that several other database-related issues have been rectified.
