This Week in OpenSim Dev – week ending Saturday 27th February 2010 March 3, 2010Posted by justincc in opensim, opensim-dev, opensim-news, 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 ( d761d1 – 1daabc ).
- The finally part of the ROBUST server migration was merged in on Monday (Monday 1st March). So I recommend that anybody following Git master back up their data before updating their source code. You may also need to change your OpenSim configuration as detailed on this wiki page.
Features & bug fixes
- I fixed a bug with loading OpenSim ARchives (OARs) where loaded region settings were not being persisted (so after a server restart the old settings would come back unless the user had made a change in the meantime) (93967d).
- Diva and Melanie continued to work on migrating the legacy user service into a number of separate ROBUST services (presence, user accounts, authentication, etc.). The branch was merged into Git master on Monday 1st March 2010.
