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.

Timeframe

We will normally roll Release Candidates to the grid Wednesday mornings when we have them. If we don't have one we won't roll anything. The RC has to be stable on the main grid for 6 days. If so it will be rolled to the full grid next the next Tuesday morning. During the course of the 6 days RC cycle regions on the RC cycle may be restarted more frequently.

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: http://world.secondlife.com/group/19657888-576f-83e9-2580-7c3da7c0e4ca

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

13.09.05.280647

  • This is preparatory work for future asset fetching improvements
  • Scheduled 2013-09-10 for RC Magnum
  • New Features
    • When connections between viewer and webservices were closed by the server, the last response was sent without a 'Content-Length' or 'Transfer-Encoding: chunked' header. Last response will now be sent with 'chunked' encoding.
    • Throttling actions on Capabilities URL result in 503 status codes back to clients.

13.08.17.280013

  • Server maintenance project.
  • Scheduled 2013-08-19 for RC Magnum

  • It only includes a few internal bug fixes which shouldn't show any visible changes to the residents.

13.07.26.279129

  • This is the server side appearance project
  • Scheduled 2013-07-31 for RC LeTigre and RC Magnum
  • New Features
    • Enabled server side appearance.
    • Deprecated and removed the ability of connected viewers to upload baked textures via the UploadBakedTexture capability and via AssetUploadRequest.
      • Client side baked textures are no longer shared with other connected agents, so the functionality was removed.
      • Viewers that do not support server side baking will fail to display avatars correctly.
    • Added IncrementCOFVersion capability, which allows the viewer to request an increment to the cof_version without changing the contents of the current outfit folder.
      • This is intended as a signal to the server side bake system when an item contained by an object in the current outfit folder is modified without any changes to the container.
      • The response to a successful request to the capability includes the current outfit folder version, which could be used for synchronization and verification.
  • More details can be found in these previous announcements:
  • Changes since 13.07.19.278843

      • Returns a string that is a Base64 XOR of Base64-formatted input strings, str1 and str2.
      • Addresses the cases from SCR-35 "llXorBase64StringsCorrect returns wrong result when the 2nd string contains nulls"
      • Aside from those cases, this function behaves identically to llXorBase64StringsCorrect()
    • Added max_materials_per_transaction to /simulator/features cap
      • This number returns the maximum number of materials that can be sent to the "RenderMaterials" capability in a single request.

13.06.18.277494

    • New pathfinding character property for llCreateCharacter() and llUpdateCharacter(): CHARACTER_STAY_WITHIN_PARCEL
      • CHARACTER_STAY_WITHIN_PARCEL takes a boolean parameter, either TRUE or FALSE
      • Default setting is FALSE, leading to traditional pathfinding behavior.
        • If a parcel allows scripts and objects and the character does not have the CHARACTER_STAY_WITHIN_PARCEL option enabled, it can freely cross the parcel boundary in both directions.
      • Characters which have CHARACTER_STAY_WITHIN_PARCEL set to TRUE treat the parcel boundaries as one-way obstacles.
        • Pathfinding wander, flee, evade, and pursue behaviors will only choose goal points within their starting parcel.
        • If a character somehow manages to escape its original parcel (e.g. it was 'pushed' out), it will be able to return to the original parcel, but will be unable to leave the original parcel afterwards.
    • New LSL functions for returning objects from parcels
      • integer llReturnObjectsByID(list objects)
        • Requires new runtime permission PERMISSION_RETURN_OBJECTS
        • objects is a list of objects IDs to return to owner
          • Parcel owner, estate owner, and estate managers can not have their objects returned by this method.
          • If the script is owned by an estate owner or manager, this function works for objects located on any parcel in the region.
          • Otherwise, the script can return objects located over land owned by the owner of the script.
        • Throttled at max parcel land impact capacity region-wide per hour.
        • Returns the number of objects that were returned to their owners or an error code.
      • integer llReturnObjectsByOwner(key owner, integer scope)
        • Requires new runtime permission PERMISSION_RETURN_OBJECTS
        • scope is:
          • OBJECT_RETURN_PARCEL to return all objects on the same parcel as the script which are owned by 'owner'. The script must be owned by an estate manager or over a parcel owned by the owner of the script.
          • OBJECT_RETURN_PARCEL_OWNER to return all objects owned by 'owner' which are over parcels owned by the owner of the script.
          • OBJECT_RETURN_REGION to return all objects in the region owned by 'owner' - only works when the script is owned by the estate owner or an estate manager.
        • Parcel owner, estate owner and estate managers can not have their objects returned by this method.
        • Objects which are owned by the group the land is set to will not be returned by this method.
        • Throttled at max parcel land impact region-wide per hour.
        • Returns the number of objects that were returned to their owners or an error code.
      • New error constants for llReturnObjectsByID and llReturnObjectsByOwner:
  • Changes since 13.06.06.277104
    • Fixed a crash mode

        • Reduced scripting overhead:
          • Replacing a default animation is less code run only once.
          • No polling required, no tracking agent state
        • Works seamlessly with existing animations and animation systems
        • Smoother Animation Overrider behavior
          • Current AOs fight the base animation. This lets the user change the base animation for a state so there is no fighting.
      • llSetAnimationOverride(string anim_state, string anim)
        • Set the animation that will play for the given animation state.
        • Animation must be in the contents of the object with the script, or one of the default animations.
        • Requires new runtime permissions PERMISSION_OVERRIDE_ANIMATIONS
      • string llGetAnimationOverride(string anim_state)
      • llResetAnimationOverride(string anim_state)
        • Resets the animation for the given animation state to the default.
        • Special state of "ALL" will reset all animation overrides to their defaults.
        • Requires new runtime permissions PERMISSION_OVERRIDE_ANIMATIONS
      • PERMISSION_OVERRIDE_ANIMATIONS
        • Only auto-granted for attachments.
      • List of supported animation states
        • "Standing", "Sitting", "Sitting on Ground", "Jumping", "Hovering", "Taking Off", "CrouchWalking", "Walking", "Running", "Hovering Up", "PreJumping", "Hovering Down", "FlyingSlow", "Flying", "Falling Down", "Striding", "Landing", "Soft Landing", "Crouching", "Standing Up", "Turning Left", "Turning Right"
      • Caveats:
        • State "Sit on Ground" will play the default animation in addition to any override set. This is required for correct viewer behavior.
        • Some states are transitional and have undefined behavior if set to continuously looping animations. These states are "PreJumping", "Landing", "Soft Landing" and "Standing Up".
  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed a simulator crash mode
    • Slight region performance improvement when there are no pathfinding characters present
  • Changes since 13.04.01.273300
    • If llStopAnimation() is called with the default animation for the agent's current animation state, and the agent has overriden the animation for that state then the override will be stopped (BUG-2164)
      • For example, if a user overrides his sit animation to be "yoga_sit" and then sits on a poseball, if that poseball calls 'llStopAnimation("sit")', then the user's "yoga_sit" animation will be stopped.
    • Includes changes from Second Life Server 13.04.05.273580

13.04.05.273580

  • This is a server HTTP improvement project
  • Scheduled 2013-04-10, for RC Magnum, RC BlueSteel, and RC LeTigre
  • Features
    • More complete and more correct headers on texture and mesh fetches.
      The asset fetch responses, involving texture and mesh fetches, are fairly straight forward. More headers and correct headers will be returned. Viewers will begin to receive the following:
      • Age
      • Cache-Control
      • Content-Encoding
      • Content-Language
      • Content-Length (for meshes)
      • Content-Range (for 206 responses)
      • Content-Type
      • Etag
      • Expires
      • Last-Modified
      The 'Content-Type' for assets will start showing as image/x-j2c and application/vnd.ll.mesh for images and meshes, respectively. Old service behavior will still be present on the grid for a time. And as with HTTP in general, any of these headers may disappear or change in structure or meaning as permitted.
    • Keepalive connections for some HTTP-based services
      The behavioral change for HTTP connections marks the beginning of support for persistent (keepalive) connections. Services transiting the capabilities router, at ports 12043 and 12046, may honor a request for keepalives and keep a connection open after request completion. These services may include such activities as texture and mesh fetching, event delivery to viewer, HTTP-In for LSL scripts, asset uploads and inventory operations. Benefits from keepalives include immediate and future throughput increases and less TCP connection churn (which often disrupts consumer-grade networking equipment).
      The exact set of services that will see this is expected to change over time.

      • Faster sorting of visible objects.
      • Faster construction of ObjectUpdate packets
    • Less bandwidth:
      • Fewer update packets for moving objects that are out of view.

12.11.02.266530

  • This is a maint-server project.
  • Scheduled 2012-11-07
  • New features
    • Added llGetObjectDetails() flags OBJECT_ROOT and OBJECT_ATTACHED_POINT
      • OBJECT_ROOT returns the id of the root prim of the object's linkset
        • If called on an avatar, returns the id of the root prim of the linkset the avatar is sitting on (or the avatar's own id if the avatar is not sitting on an object within the region)
        • Return type is a Key
      • OBJECT_ATTACHED_POINT returns the attachment point to which the object is attached
        • Returns 0 if the object is not an attachment (or is an avatar, etc)
        • Return type is an Integer
    • Thanks to a newly added capability the simulator can now report information about script permissions granted to objects within a region. A future viewer update will use this.
  • Bug Fixes
    • llSensor() issue fixed
    • Fixed an issue with group info loading
    • Fixed Linkability distance rules
    • Fix for large group member loading failures (SVC-4968). This provides a new capability to viewers to fetch member lists for large groups.

12.07.31.262785

  • This is the Pathfinding Project.
  • Features and Changes
    • Havok's AI library has been added so that navigation meta data for an entire region can be computed. This data is called the "navmesh".
    • SL objects can be turned into "characters" which use the navmesh to navigate the world and avoid obstacles.
      • New LSL calls have been added to create/update/delete character behavior.
      • Characters cannot be used as attachments.
      • Characters are incompatible with some features, such as keyframed motion, being used as attachments, phantom, size changes, and others.
    • Not all objects in the world contribute to the navmesh calculations.
      • The terrain always contributes
      • By default objects are ignored for the navmesh calculations.
      • Objects may be flagged to modify the navmesh calculations in one of 4 ways:
        • "Walkable" objects add navigable zones to the navmesh.
        • "Static Obstacle" objects cannot be navigated, and create a hole in the nav mesh
        • "Exclusion Volume" objects are like static obstacles, except that they are phantom (meaning that pathfinding characters cannot move through them but other physical objects and avatars can)
        • "Material Volume" objects are phantom objects that can be set to change the walkability coefficients of an area of the navmesh
        • Material volumes and walkable objects have 4 walkability coefficients to determine how expensive they are for each category of character
      • Objects that contribute to the navmesh have special restrictions:
        • Objects that contribute to the navmesh cannot change their physical shape via LSL script (changing object position, shape parameters, scale, rotation, physics shape type, and linking/unlinking is generally blocked)
        • Objects that contribute to the navmesh can be physically changed via the build tool by avatars who have modify permission and if the avatar is in the same region as the object.
        • In other words: objects that contribute to the navmesh cannot be physically changed by avatars who are located in a different region than the object, and therefore such objects cannot be moved across region boundaries.
      • When the navmesh has been modified, either because the terrain has been edited or because an object contributing to the nav mesh was rezzed/modified/deleted, it must be manually regenerated.
      • The beta viewer [version 3.4.0 (262596) or later] can be used to modify the pathfinding settings in a region: SL Viewer Downloads
      • Parcels that are set No-Entry for objects will cut the navmesh at their borders -- characters will not be able to navigate across it.
    • The collision pipeline has been reorganized. This may affect avatar collisions/control, vehicle movement, and collision callbacks in LSL scripts.
    • The terrain collision shape has been changed from a "heightfield" to a "mesh" to provide more efficient collisions, ray-trace, and navmesh computations.
      • This may change some collision details. In particular see the "Known Issues" list below.
      • When changing the terrain its visible appearance will update immediately, but its collision shape will not.
      • The server will wait at least 10 seconds since the last change before computing the new shape, and the computation time may take several seconds.
      • Where there is a discrepancy between visible and colliding terrain shapes object and avatar collisions may appear incorrect.
    • Fix for PATHBUG-77 "llCastRay returns RCERR_CAST_TIME_EXCEEDED until the sim is rebooted"
    • Avatars which are sitting on an object can no longer freeze it by selecting it, if they don't have permission to freeze it while standing.
    • More details about pathfinding can be found at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Pathfinding and its linked pages
  • Changed prim accounting for legacy prims which use the new accounting system
    • All legacy-style prims have their streaming cost capped at 1.0 (except for sculpts, which will be capped at 2.0). This provides the benefit of not penalizing prim-based creators for optimizing their content by opting into the new system and will make the streaming cost more reflective of the true network cost of the objects.
    • Server cost will be adjusted to MIN{ (0.5*num_prims) + (0.25 * num_scripts), num_prims }. This preserves the current value for unscripted linksets and reduce the cost for linksets containing fewer than 2*num_prims scripts. It provides the benefit of rewarding creators for reducing the number of scripts in their objects.

    • Fast vehicles can snag on the terrain (which now collides as a mesh shape instead of a heightfield)

12.06.20.260188

12.06.23.260473

  • This is the Pathfinding Project.
  • Features and Changes
    • Havok's AI library has been added so that navigation meta data for an entire region can be computed. This data is called the "navmesh".
    • SL objects can be turned into "characters" which use the navmesh to navigate the world and avoid obstacles.
      • New LSL calls have been added to create/update/delete character behavior.
      • Characters cannot be used as attachments.
      • Characters are incompatible with some features, such as keyframed motion, being used as attachments, phantom, size changes, and others.
    • Not all objects in the world contribute to the navmesh calculations.
      • The terrain always contributes
      • By default objects are ignored for the navmesh calculations.
      • Objects may be flagged to modify the navmesh calculations in one of 4 ways:
        • "Walkable" objects add navigable zones to the navmesh.
        • "Static Obstacle" objects cannot be navigated, and create a hole in the nav mesh
        • "Exclusion Volume" objects are like static obstacles, except that they are phantom (meaning that pathfinding characters cannot move through them but other physical objects and avatars can)
        • "Material Volume" objects are phantom objects that can be set to change the walkability coefficients of an area of the navmesh
        • Material volumes and walkable objects have 4 walkability coefficients to determine how expensive they are for each category of character
      • Objects that contribute to the navmesh have special restrictions:
        • Objects that contribute to the navmesh cannot change their physical shape via LSL script (changing object position, shape parameters, scale, rotation, physics shape type, and linking/unlinking is generally blocked)
        • Objects that contribute to the navmesh can be physically changed via the build tool by avatars who have modify permission and if the avatar is in the same region as the object.
        • In other words: objects that contribute to the navmesh cannot be physically changed by avatars who are located in a different region than the object, and therefore such objects cannot be moved across region boundaries.
      • When the navmesh has been modified, either because the terrain has been edited or because an object contributing to the nav mesh was rezzed/modified/deleted, it must be manually regenerated.
      • The pathfinding project viewer can be used to modify the pathfinding settings in a region: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Alternate_Viewers#Pathfinding
      • Parcels that are set No-Entry for objects will cut the navmesh at their borders -- characters will not be able to navigate across it.
    • The collision pipeline has been reorganized. This may affect avatar collisions/control, vehicle movement, and collision callbacks in LSL scripts.
    • The terrain collision shape has been changed from a "heightfield" to a "mesh" to provide more efficient collisions, ray-trace, and navmesh computations.
      • This may change some collision details. In particular see the "Known Issues" list below.
      • When changing the terrain its visible appearance will update immediately, but its collision shape will not.
      • The server will wait at least 10 seconds since the last change before computing the new shape, and the computation time may take several seconds.
      • Where there is a discrepancy between visible and colliding terrain shapes object and avatar collisions may appear incorrect.
    • Fix for PATHBUG-77 "llCastRay returns RCERR_CAST_TIME_EXCEEDED until the sim is rebooted"
    • Avatars which are sitting on an object can no longer freeze it by selecting it, if they don't have permission to freeze it while standing.
    • More details about pathfinding can be found at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Pathfinding and its linked pages
  • Known Issues
    • Fast vehicles can snag on the terrain (which now collides as a mesh shape instead of a heightfield)
    • Certain small physical objects can fall through the terrain surface
    • Mesh objects (such as vehicles) cannot physically cross from a pathfinding region into a non-pathfinding region, due to the upgrade to a newer version of the Havok physics engine
    • After the terrain is edited, the physics engine several needs to 'rebake' the terrain to reflect the new shape, due to the new physics modeling system.
    • PATHBUG-122 Ground Sit in a pathfinding region causes appearance to not match real location
    • PATH-784 Editing the shape parameters of PHYSICS_SHAPE_TYPE_NONE child prims in navmeshy linksets via build tool incorrectly cause the navmesh to be marked dirty
    • PATH-651 Pathfinding characters silently fail when crossing into a region with dynamic_pathfinding disabled

    • PATH-538 Character mass as reported by LSL scripts is bogus

      • For convex prims (with or without physics) and for concave prims (without physics), the 10cm gap has been removed wherever possible.
      • For small prims ( <~0.2m on a side ) it can't be completely removed so those objects may still exhibit a gap, but it will typically be smaller than it was before the change.
    • Complete overhaul of physics shape construction and management
  • llCastRay() function included but disabled.
    • Scripts will compile but will not generate results.

11.03.01.222364

  • "server-maint" project, deployed 2011-03-02
  • Bugs Fixed
    • SVC-6781: Duplicating old attachments does not copy attachment point/position/rotation info
    • Some people may notice a slight improvement in regions with heavy object creationg/deletion. (Maestro claims he saw his object-creation benchmark speed up from 14 obj/sec to 17 obj/sec. Nothing was changed in object creation, however we did clean up object deletion, and Maestro's benchmark deletes objects as fast as they are created.)

  • "Centrals Supreme" project deployed 2011-01-12
  • Features
    • This is a bundle of a 3 updates to our "central servers." The Centrals, as we call them, are all the various machines that do things besides simulating regions. The three updates are:
      1. Mapserver: a minor update to the machine that generates the region images that you see on the World Map
      2. Inventory API: you may remember that this service was deployed a few weeks ago. We've since had to disable it due to conflicts with older viewers. This deploy is to add a version number to the API capability that the sims hand out, thereby making it only accessible to newer viewers that can properly interact with it. Older viewers will use the legacy inventory protocol that has been on the grid since the dawn of time.
      3. Region Conductor: this is the services that decides which simulator to put regions on. When your region is down, either from a restart, crash, or whatever, the region conductor finds an empty sim to start it up on. The chagnes here are to improve the efficiency of how regions are placed on sims.
