What is Magnum?

Magnum is the nickname for 1 of our 3 'Server Release Candidate' channels. When a new version of server is ready for the main grid it needs to prove itself in a release candidate channel for one week first. This is what we used to call a pilot roll. Once a 'Server Release Candidate' has proven itself it will be rolled out to the entire main grid. Magnum will then be given a new 'Server Release Candidate'. We might have as many as three 'Server Release Candidate' channels on the main grid at the same time. The others are BlueSteel and LeTigre. These can and probably will change on a weekly basis.

Magnum Release Channel

This is the Magnum Release Channel. Information on this release candidate is below. For more information on beta projects, see: Beta Server Office Hours.

Additional Info

"You gotta tame the beast before you let it out of its cage."

Magnum can be on about 10% of the grid. These 4 regions will always have the latest up to date Magnum RC code. You are welcome to use them as needed. They are available to members of the group "Second Life Beta". Please join this group:

If they are closed that means there is no RC using that channel.
