What do the numbers in a release version mean?

E.g. 1.x.y.z? And why is it sometimes 1.x.y(z)?”

These version numbers follow a common convention in software engineering of four numbers. The common definition of w.x.y.z-style release numbers is Major.Minor.Patch.Revision.

w (Major)
Using that terminology, Second Life has only had one Major version change - from 0.x beta to 1.0 release. As Second Life is a constantly evolving service and platform rather than a traditional monolithic software application, we have no current plans to increment the initial number.

.x (Minor) and .y (Patch)

  • For releases up to 1.15, Linden Lab’s interpretation was to use the second digit x to denote a substantial new feature or sizable release, for example:
    • 1.10 introduced flexi prims
    • 1.11 was a revamp of the UI layer
    • 1.12 had groups and estates improvements
    • 1.14 introduced render pipeline improvements, and so on.
    • (The SLHistory Wiki http://www.slhistory.org/index.php/Release_Notes has unofficial archives of the release notes.)

In between these Minor 1.x versions were other releases noted by changes to the third digit .y -- some big, some small, some optional, some mandatory, some server-side, some viewer side. (e.g. 1.13.1, 1.13.2, 1.13.3, 1.13.4).

  • In releases from 1.15 to 1.19, Linden Lab switched to having the second digit (e.g. 1.19) denote an updated viewer which required Residents to use it, to go along with a server-side software update. In between these Minor 1.x versions were any optional versions denoted by the third digit (even those with substantial new features) such as 1.19.1.
  • Beginning with release 1.20, every new featured version of the viewer will be given a new second digit .x to denote it is a new release. These may or may not be mandatory upgrades -- this x digit itself do not represent whether an new viewer has substantial features or not, or is mandatory or not. In between these Minor 1.x versions are any improved builds (small iterations of bug fixes) denoted by the third digit .y.
    • Usually while a Minor 1.x version is in its beta or Release Candidate RC status, it will undergo 3-6 build iterations; thus it will typically become "official" with a number like 1.20.6.

.z (Revision)
The final digit always represents a unique Revision number, which denotes internal changes only. The official released version of the Second Life viewer will only use the first three digits to have meaning (e.g. 1.20.6).

  • Some parts of the Second Life UI and Web site show this last digit in parenthesis (z) to emphasize the, er, parenthetical nature of that field - it shouldn’t be important except to software developers seeking a precise snapshot of when the code was packaged.

Release Notes for Second Life 1.20 Release Candidate

The 1.20 RC viewer is not yet an official viewer, so its release notes and changes are documented at this time on the Official Second Life Blog only as iterations are announced.


Release Notes for Second Life 1.19.1(4) April 2nd, 2008

New features and changes:

  • Physically accurate atmospheric rendering and lighting (previously code named WindLight)
    • Animateable day cycles
    • Vastly improved realistic water with reflections and glimmer
    • "Glow" as new object attribute
    • Avatar Impostoring, which can speed up crowded scenes tremendously
    • A new cleaned-up, easy to use Graphics Preferences tab with simple and advanced options for performance/quality settings
  • Parcel Media - adds the ability to display Web based media on a parcel
    • New API for Media Rendering
    • Enables Web content inworld
    • Added two new click actions, one for playing movies, and one for opening media
    • Embedded web browser
    • Added support for Media resizing
  • Estate-Level Abuse Reporting
    • Estate owners and managers now have the ability (under World > Region/Estate) to enter an email address where abuse reports will be sent.
    • If this address is empty, abuse reports will go to Linden Lab as usual. If the address is present, the abuse reports will be sent there instead. In both cases, all abuse reports are logged by Linden Lab.
  • Voice changes
    • Changed the default voice volume to be a bit higher, to better match the volume of in-world sounds
    • Changed the voice volume slider to default to the middle of its range, so voice volume can be boosted above the default
  • Improved Linux Voice support
    • Better support for USB headsets and other devices
    • Better voice audio quality
  • Additional rendering optimizations:
    • Faster, more reliable occlusion culling - occluded regions are discovered instantaneously, eliminating random bad frames due to the camera moving too quickly
    • No geometry transform overhead on region crossing - results in region crossings being slightly smoother
    • Faster frustum culling - less time is spent determining what's visible, thus giving better overall framerates
    • No copy-to-texture for ripple water - objects under water are rendered to texture at half resolution, resulting in better overall framerates
    • Faster sky updates - the non-WindLight (aka no-shader) skies update quicker - even faster than the pre-WindLight skies!
    • Single pass shiny when using shaders - making an object shiny will no longer require it to be rendered twice, which results in virtually free shiny functionality from a performance standpoint
    • Single pass terrain when using shaders - the terrain is no longer drawn in two passes, which, from a performance standpoint, results in virtually free high detail terrain for shader friendly cards (See the System Recommendations at http://secondlife.com/corporate/sysreqs.php)
    • Improved object update code (less work for the CPU) - attachments are no longer added to the active list, which improves performance in crowded areas
    • Better scheduling of Avatar LOD (Level of Detail) updates - Avatar LOD is now calculated every 16 frames as opposed to every single frame, which removes redundant work
    • Better Avatar culling through more accurate bounding boxes - Avatar bounding boxes now match their current animation, resulting in more optimized culling of avatars that are not visible in the frame
    • Better tree rendering (70% fewer matrix operations, no reliance on GL matrix stack) - results in improved performance for tree rendering
    • Trimmed unused state in LLDrawable, LLSpatialGroup, LLOctree, and LLFace - results in memory savings
    • 16-bit index buffers are now used instead of 32-bit buffers - improves memory bandwidth for rendering geometry
    • For more information, see: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/WindLight
