This Week in OpenSim Dev – week ending Saturday 26th December 2009 December 29, 2009

Posted by justincc in opensim, opensim-dev, opensim-news, secondlife, twiod, virtual-environments, virtual-worlds.

Hello everybody. This is a short summary of OpenSim development for the past week up until the end of last Saturday.  The letters in brackets after bug and feature points are the Git revision identifiers in which the work appears.  We only give the first 6 characters of each revision but this should be enough to identify it.

The changes described here appear only in OpenSim’s cutting edge Git ‘master’ branch.  Please do not attempt to use code taken directly from ‘master’ in any production environment.  At particular points in time this in-development code may not work or may even cause data corruption.  If you are not a developer or tester, please treat this summary instead as a preview of what will be coming up in the next release.  The latest official release is OpenSim 0.6.8 (released on 23rd December 2009).

This week in OpenSim ( 37b07a – 036925 ).

  • Melanie removed all knowledge of XEngine state information from core OpenSim.
  • Melanie changed the code so that the user profile module can be completely replaced for all profile data.
