Server Deployments Week 27

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

  • There was no deployment to the Main (SLS) channel on Tuesday, July 4th, and it remains on simulator version # However the bi-weekly restart did take place.
  • On Wednesday, July 5th, the RC channels should be updated as follows:
    • BlueSteel and LeTigre will remain on simulator version # This contains internal fixes, and an update to the week #25 deployment (# )
    • Magnum should receive a server maintenance package (# comprising the ongoing OS system update for the simulators.

DJ Boards Issue – Magnum RC

The original deployment of this OS update to Magnum resulted in breakages to scripts used by various streaming service DJ boards (as noted in BUG-10073 and also in the forums). An initial attempt to fix the issue was made in June, but wasn’t entirely successful. The Magnum deployment (# above contains a revised fix for the problem.

SL Viewer

The Project Alex Ivy 64- bit viewer moved to release candidate status with the release of version on June 30th.

The 360-degree snapshot project viewer updated to version on June 29th. This version still does not correctly define images for 360-degree playback on Flickr (tag must be manually set). I have a hands-on look at the updated viewer: Second Life 360 degree snapshots hands on II.

The rest of the viewer pipeline is as follows:

  • Current Release version, released on May 26th, promoted June 20th – formerly the AssetHTTP RC viewer – overview
  • Release channel cohort:
  • Obsolete platform viewer version dated May 8, 2015 – provided for users on Windows XP and OS X versions below 10.7.

User Group Meetings

  • There is no Simulator User Group meeting on Tuesday, July 4th due to the US Independence Day holiday.
  • The Content Creator User Group will be meeting on Thursday, July 6th, rather than being held over to allow for the Lab’s internal start-of-month meeting.
