2021 SUG meeting week #6 summary

Old Town Winterland, December 2020 – blog post

The following notes were taken from the Tuesday, February 9th, 2021 Simulator User Group (SUG) meeting.

Server Deployments

At the time of writing,the release notes for the week had yet to be produced. However, deploys can be summarised as:

  • On Tuesday, February 9th, the SLS Main channel was updated to server release 555570, previously deployed to the RC channels. This update comprises: feature request BUG-230026 Extended error return for llHTTPRequest – see here for documentation – and the following fixes:
    • BUG-228783 llSitOnLink() is not generating Notifications nor logs in Events in the viewer.
    • BUG-8265  (BUG-230131) CONTROL_ML_LBUTTON and CONTROL_LBUTTON not working when llTakeControls called in the experience_permissions event
    • SL-14802 experience notifications are sent to frequently.
  • There is no deployment to the RC channels planned for Wednesday, February 10th.

The Tuesday 9th Feb deployment means that all simulators should currently be running the same version.

Rider Linden also indicated that additional micro-channels (along the lines of the Cake and Snack, etc., mini-RC channels generally used for specific testing or code and fixes) are to be created, but this work will be done outside of the normal Tuesday / Wednesday deployment time frames. These new channels are described as being need because “We want to run some controlled tests on small manageable numbers of regions at a time.”

    • In terms of board members appearing in-world at public meetings, it is worth pointing out that the last time a board member appeared in-world was likely SL5B in 2008, when former board member gave his (in)famous keynote address
