2019 Simulator User Group week #43

The Island That Is Not There, September 2019 – blog post

Update: it now appears all regions will be placed on server release 2019-10-03T01:12:11.531528, see the updated server deployment thread.

No significant news. A lot of back and forth on region crossings and texture loading.
