This Week in OpenSim Dev – week ending Saturday 19th April 2008 April 20, 2008Posted by justincc in opensim, opensim-news, secondlife, twiod.
Hello everybody. This is a short summary of OpenSim development for the past week up until yesterday, as culled from our source code repository logs. The numbers in brackets are svn revision numbers in case you want a little more detail. This week in OpenSim development (r4216 – r4282)
- sdague changed the Sim <-> IRC bridge so that only text on channel 0 from the sim is relayed to IRC. Previously chat on all channels was relayed (r4226)
- teravus implemented the ability to transfer land
parcel ownership in standalone mode. To activate this you’ll need to add
to your list of client startup arguments (r4228 )
- Dr Scofield contributed an Asterisk voice module which should eventually allow OpenSim to be coupled with an Asterisk VOIP gateway. This doesn’t give us voice yet. For more details, see Dr Scofield’s own blog post (r4236).
- sdague made a bug fix which may remove a long standing OpenSim crash characterized by a StartTimer()/invoke_void exception on the console (see this bug) for one example (r4248).
- Melanie contributed a patch to implement landmarks, though you can currently only make a landmark if you enable admin options in the Linden client’s Advanced menu first (r4248). Chris Down contributed an additional fix to the landmarks code (r4258).
- Alan Webb contributed fixes for various LSL list manipulations (r4254, r4255) and llListRepliceList and llList2CSV (r4268).
- Adam Frisby added an experimental Subversion region persistence and restore module. See Adam’s blog post for more details (multiple revisions).
- Melanie contributed a patch which implements llGetInventoryKey with permissions checking. She also improved llSetTexture to allow texture references by name (r4271).
- teravus added object lock persistence (r4272).
- Alan Webb contributed more robust LSL string manipulation code (r4276).
- akio contributed a patch which properly scales linked objects (r4280). Thanks aiko!
