12.10.26.266333

  • This is the server modernization project
  • Scheduled 2012-11-01
  • Features and Changes
    • Updated the Havok physics engine to version 2012.1
    • Enables Havok's "Collision Geometry Optimizer" for the terrain, which simplifies the physics shape of the terrain for improved performance.
      • This can be disabled by region owners and estate managers with the Region Debug Console command "set optimize_terrain false".
    • Includes a new LSL function to access simulator statistics, llGetSimStats.
      • Usage: float llGetSimStats(integer stat_type)
      • Currently, this function accepts only SIM_STAT_PCT_CHARS_STEPPED as its parameter, which returns the % of pathfinding characters skipped each frame, averaged over the last minute. The returned value corresponds to the "Characters Updated" stat in the viewer's Statistics Bar.
    • Includes a new option for llCreateCharacter: CHARACTER_ACCOUNT_FOR_SKIPPED_FRAMES. Default is true to match pre-existing behavior. If set to false, character will not attempt to catch up on lost time when pathfinding performance is low, potentially providing more reliable movement (albeit while potentially appearing to be more stuttery).
    • Changes to pathfinding character throttling, so that characters may be permitted to exceed the previous 50µs limit per frame if there is sufficient spare time available.
    • Added a new parameter to llGetObjectDetails, OBJECT_PATHFINDING_TYPE, which returns the pathfinding setting of any object in the region. It returns an integer matching one of the following new constants:
    • Added a new option for llHTTPRequest(): HTTP_PRAGMA_NO_CACHE
      • Usage: [HTTP_PRAGMA_NO_CACHE, integer send_header]
      • When send_header is TRUE, the "Pragma: no-cache" header is sent by the script. This matches the default behavior.
      • When send_header is FALSE, no "Pragma" header is sent by the script.
      • See the HTTP specification for more details about this header.
    • Other internal system changes
  • Bug Fixes
    • "Pragma: no-cache" llHTTPRequest() header bug
    • Fixed new crashing bug
  • Known Issues
    • Mesh objects (such as vehicles) cannot physically cross from a region running Havok 2012.1 into a region running an older version of Havok, due to the upgrade to a newer version of the Havok physics engine. Currently (2012-10-17), RC LeTigre is the only channel with the latest Havok upgrade.
  • Merged with Server Trunk: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_Server/12#12.10.19.266079
  • Also on BlueSteel: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_RC_BlueSteel/12#12.10.26.266333

    • These functions only work on the RC regions and not grid wide.
    • These functions have an on/off switch. The release to RC has the functions disabled by default.

12.01.13.247734

  • This "maint-server" project scheduled 2012-01-18
  • Features
  • New LSL function integer llSetRegionPos(vector position)
    The object with the script will move the root prim position to the given location. The position is any position within the region. If the position is below ground, it will be set to the ground level at that X,Y spot. The function has no delay or throttle.
    • Returns 1 if the object is successfully placed within 0.1 m of position.
    • Returns 0 and does not move the object if position is more than 10m off region or above 4096m.
    • Returns 0 and does not move the object if the object is dynamic (has physics enabled).
    • Returns 0 and does not move the object if the object can not move to position due to object entry rules, prim limits, bans, etc.
  • "frame_number" option added to llGetEnv()
    Returns an integer that represents the current 'frame' of the simulator. Generally only useful for specific debugging cases.
  • Bug Fixes
    • SVC-7466 A notecard holds more data than a script can read
    • SVC-7520 Keyframe motion doesn't move towards the correct position when specified time is not an exact multiple of 1/45 seconds
    • SVC-7485 llSetKeyframedMotion cannot stop animation if none is running ... sounds less important than it is ...
    • SVC-7493 Weird mesh land impact issue
    • Fixed several simulator crash bugs and potential memory leaks.
    • Fixed a notecard crashing bug.
  • Code also deployed to BlueSteel: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_RC_BlueSteel/12#12.01.13.247734
