Server Deployments Week 25

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

  • On Tuesday, June 20th, the Main (SLS) channel was updated with a new server maintenance package (#, containing fixes to help with the caps (capabilities) router, particularly with reference to trying to teleport to regions which have a heavy avatar load (see here for details),. These were essentially the same fixes as deployed to the Main channel on June 6th (server maintenance package #, together with additional internal fixes.
  • On Wednesday, June 21st, the RC channels should be updated as follows:
    • BlueSteel and LeTigre should receive the same server maintenance package (# containing internal fixes
    • Magnum should receive a server maintenance package (# intended to fix BUG-100830 (“HTTP_CUSTOM_HEADER no longer works on RC”) and BUG-100831 (“Lelutka Simone bento head spits a script error when attached on regions (Magnum & Cake)”).

SL Viewer

The Asset HTTP RC viewer, version dated May 23rd, was promoted to de facto release status on Tuesday, June 20th.  This viewer includes avatar rendering updates – see my RC overview for more.

The snapshot viewer updated to version on Monday, June 19th. This version should include all the necessary metadata in 360-degree shoot to play them as 360 images on suitable websites. However, in testing, it does not appear to work with Flickr.

Otherwise, the current viewer pipelines line-up as:

  • Release channel cohorts:
  • Project viewers:
    • Project Alex Ivy 64-bit viewer version dated May 11th
  • Obsolete platform viewer version dated May 8th, 2015 – provided for users on Windows XP and OS X versions below 10.7.
