Release Notes

Welcome to OpenSimulator This is a minor point release from OpenSimulator 0.7.1. It contains bug fixes but no database changes (except for MSSQL) or configuration changes.

One significant change since OpenSimulator 0.7.1 is that the current outfit folder no longer continuously fills with inventory links when using viewer 2 and related third party viewers. Outfit management should now work.

Also, it appears that recent viewer 2 code now allows appearance to be changed if the avatar is a gas cloud. The minimal set of items for the avatar to appear

The most prominent issue with viewer 2 and OpenSimulator now is that the world map does not show up properly - users see corresponding tiles from the Linden Lab grid instead. This will be addressed by a later release.

As this is a wiki page, please feel free to update it with more information about any issues that come to light.


OpenSimulator requires

  • At least .NET Framework 3.5 when running under Windows.
  • At least Mono 2.4.3 when running under Mono.
  • Installation of the Nant build tool if building from source. Alternatively, the source can also be built using Microsoft Visual C# 2008 Express Edition under Windows or the xbuild tool shipped with Mono.

Known Bugs

  • Linden Lab Viewer 2.6.8 and later will crash if a script invokes llDialog(). This is because this viewer assumes that the OwnerData field in ScriptDialog will be present, which this and earlier versions of OpenSimulator do not supply. This is fixed in the current OpenSimulator development code by updating the LibOpenMetaverse libraries (commit c4b265ae) and supplying the OwnerData information (8129e654) and dealing with a change in the MoneyBalanceReply message (c67fa72). Once this proves stable, it will be ported to the 0.7.1-dev git branch.

Backwards compatibility notices

  • None

Configuration changes

  • None

Database changes

  • GridUserStore table added for MSSQL plugin.

Other changes

  • Inventory links now fixed. These means that outfits will work properly with viewer 2 and similar third party viewers.
  • Hypergrid map display fixed for viewer 1 series.
  • Offline Instant Messaging adaptor fixed.
  • get_grid_info now escapes xml entities where required.
  • Loading older OARs which contain no parcel data is fixed.
  • llGetMarcelMaxPrims() fixed to use the same calculations as the rest of the simulator.
  • en-US culture enforced when saving archive data.
  • Very verbose debug logging messages eliminated.

85bad46 When saving an iar, don't chase down link asset IDs (since these points to other items rather than real assets)

d0673d7 Somewhat reverting the last commit. The viewer ignores 255's on tiles that were previously on, so we need to send 254 (offline) explicitly. Also removing the +/-4 for HGMap, because it makes the map flicker.
009b227 Changed the Access flag on HGMap to 255 (does not exist) and clarified the other value 254 too. Meanings taken from libomv.
