This Week in OpenSim Dev – week ending Saturday 5th June 2010 June 8, 2010

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

Except where otherwise specified, 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 0.6.9 (released on 14th May 2010).

The letters and numbers in brackets after some entries tell you the latest git commit to which they apply.

This week in OpenSim ( bfcac0e – ab3afd5 ).

General news

  • None this week

Features & bug fixes

  • Melanie introduced a security option where only certain script creators can run certain ‘os’ in-world script functions (f1a1d7a).
  • Melanie stopped an exception being thrown by the RegionReady module (8df9f27).
  • Melanie removed JScript in-world scripting support from both master and 0.6.9-post-fixes branches, since Mono 2.7 and above no longer include the necessary libraries (5270e54).

thank you for taking the time to comment on how independent OpenSim software is. i particularly liked (and was excited by) your view that it should be like Apache. that makes the most sense it seems (spoken from the viewpoint of someone that does flash/actionscripting for elearning using xml, javascript, and so on)
