Paul ProductEngine


PAST

  • BUG STORM- 665 (User is not able to view full name of Group's founder in the Group Profile)
    • Fixed and sent for review
  • BUG STORM- 879 (Last name resident shown in first entry in conference IM log for users with view display names off when conference initiated by user with last name resident)
    • Resolved as cannot reproduce
  • BUG STORM- 952 (No upload from filepath including national characters like æ, ø and å)
    • See impediments

FUTURE

  • Other tickets by priority

IMPEDIMENTS

  • STORM- 952
    • There are two problems with this issue:

Crash Not able to upload file which path contains æ, ø and å


I tried to reproduce it and my results (see more details about machines on which i tried to reproduce this in my comment in jira) are: Windows 7 (32 bit) -- No crash and it is possible to upload the file from filepath including national characters like æ, ø and å. But these characters are replaced with ?? WindowsXP (32 bit) -- No crash and it is NOT possible to upload the file from filepath including national characters like æ, ø and å


In second comment for this ticket Q says that: "Well, we shouldn't crash, but it may be (I haven't researched this yet) that our server-side systems don't support unicode in these names. So it might be that the solution is that we don't let you do that".

So my question is: whether it should be possible to upload such files or not?

PAST

  • BUG (STORM-731) Crash in LLRemoteParcelInfoProcessor::addObserver
    • Closed as duplicate.
  • BUG (STORM-1015) Unable to select right Login Landmark when it's name is not unique
    • Working on the problem with selecting an entry in start location combobox when it contains several identical strings in a list.

FUTURE

  • BUG (STORM-1015) Unable to select right Login Landmark when it's name is not unique
    • Estimated: 4-6 hours.

IMPEDIMENTS

  • BUG (STORM-526) Log out failure during Login causes loss of pending offers, including inventory
    • Cannot reproduce without being able to use the specific account of a resident who has this issue on log in.
  • BUG (STORM-983) no-transfer textures not searchable via texture picker
    • Some residents are concerned about their texture being transfered without permission with a prim it is applied to, others complain about the texture they own being useless without the ability to apply it.
    • Waiting for the product owner decision whether to allow No Copy and/or No Transfer textures to be shown in texture picker.


Vadim ProductEngine


PAST

  • Story STORM-326 (Create and Save your Windlight Skies/Water as a persistent, new Default setting):
    • Finally found out why a saved sky preset wasn't applied at startup (had been investigating this problem for days due to spaghettiness of the code). I can submit my fix, but not sure about it: see IMPEDIMENTS below.

FUTURE

  • Prettify my fix of STORM-326 for publishing.
  • Help WolfPup with STORM-236 (Allow the "Speak" button to be removed, like other buttons).

IMPEDIMENTS

  • STORM-326.
    • It turns out that the only way to properly apply a sky preset is to stop the day cycle (so-called animator).

So if you want to have a persistent sky preset, say good-bye to sunsets. I doubt this is what people expect. A more acceptable solution would be adding a "use estate time for sun/moon positioning" checkbox to each preset. Thus you would be able to choose whether you want fixed sun or not. How should we handle this issue?

    • Note that I'm not completely sure that adding the checkbox is possible (i.e. Windlight supports that), nor that it won't take too much time.

FUTURE

  • Continue with STORM-326.

IMPEDIMENTS
