11.11.11.245070

  • This is the "People API mutelist" project. Scheduled 2011-11-16.
  • Changed simulator behavior to send create/delete events in the mute-list to the People API.
    • Feature is disabled until full release.

11.11.09.244706

  • This is a "havok" project.. Scheduled 2011-11-09.
  • Bug Fixes
    • SVC-7424 Error rezzing certain mesh objects: "Unable to rez object because its mesh data is invalid."
    • Fix for root-prim meshes from an 'old server' not permitted to enter a 'new server'
  • Upgraded physics engine to Havok 2011.2. This brings in the latest work from Havok. We do not expect any noticeable change from this upgrade, but please let us know via jira if you see any new physics related issues.
  • Implemented llSetKeyframedMotion (http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlSetKeyframedMotion)
  • Known issues
    • Unattached mesh objects cannot region cross from this version into regions running an older version of Havok.
    • Unattached objects cannot region cross from regions running an older version of Havok into this version, if the root prim is a mesh. This is a bug in the main channel server, which has been fixed in this version.
  • Merged with Server Trunk: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_Server/11#11.10.31.244269

11.08.23.239310

  • This project was deployed 2011-08-25
    • No new features
    • No bug fixes
    • Changes were made to the permissions system and to simulator configuration, but should have no impact on existing builds

11.08.17.238770

  • This is the "Mesh" project. deployed 2011-08-18
    • Mesh objects can be uploaded
    • Child prims can be set to have no collision shape (do not contribute to collision of object)
    • Objects that use the features above (mesh shapes or non-colliding parts) will have prim cost calculated based on actual impact to the parcel/region rather than simple count.
    • Max prim scale has been raised to 64m on a side
    • New physics engine
      • Overhaul how collision shapes are constructed and stored in memory.
      • 10 cm gap between colliding objects has been removed for most objects:
        • For convex prims (dynamic and static)
        • Concave prims (static only)
        • 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.
    • Parcel-full return sort order has changed: most recently "changed" get returned first, but still grouped by OTHER, GROUP, and OWNER in that order.

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.)

11.01.14.219134

11.01.11.218847

  • "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.
