Release Notes for Second Life Beta Server 1.24.4 (September 3rd, 2008):

Fixes:

  • SVC-2938: Second Life Server 1.24.3.95195: If llGetNextEmail(string address, string subject) is called with a value in the SUBJECT field, the call will fail as no email will be picked up by the email( ) event.
  • SVC-2962: When creating a new list from a string and old list, it adds the string to the old list as well
  • SVC-2927: Abandoning land changes land name and description even when done by an Estate Manager.
  • SVC-2750: State changes are several times slower on MONO servers
    • Also addresses:
      • SVC-2958: state_exit() events are slow
      • SVC-2973: MONO - timer() event triggers before on_rez(), & state_entry()


Release Notes for Second Life Beta Server 1.24.3 (August 29th, 2008):

Changes:

  • Mono is an alternate way to run ordinary LSL scripts. It has advantages of speed and memory management over the current script engine. For more information about Mono see the wiki article: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Mono.
    • Note: Although no special viewer is needed to run Mono scripts, to create them you will need a viewer version of 1.21 or later.
    • The 1.21 Release Candidate Viewer is expected to be available the week of August 25th.
  • Enabled group moderation features for voice chat.


Changes that require both 1.24 Server *and* 1.21 Viewer (available here under "Release Candidate"):

  • New LSL calls for touch "position" in the touch_start(), touch(), and touch_end() events. Each touch() event provides the current surface point data (allowing grabbing, sliders, levers, and all sorts of pseudo GUI builds!):
  • Script performance now measured in "events per second" (eps) instead of "instructions per second" (ips)
    • 1.21 viewers will show "Script events" in the statistics window (ctrl-sht-1), but the metric will only have useful data for regions running 1.24.
    • Earlier viewers will show the legacy "Script perf" in the stat window, but its value will only be useful for regions running 1.23.
    • Once 1.24 is deployed gridwide, the only way to obtain useful script performance info will be with a 1.21 or later viewer


  • New feature to return all objects on an estate
    • MISC-713: Add "Return All Objects" as an estate-wide feature for a specified resident
  • New info added:
    • Add Time Stamp to Parcel Object List
    • Add Time Stamp to Top Scripts Colliders List
    • Add more categories to Help -> Report Abuse..


Fixes:

  • Three security fixes
