[INFO] Supporting 2DO.pm Hypergrid Events #2
Following the recent addition of 2DO.pm Hypergrid events to the login screen and their notice boards in the welcome area on Annwfn, the home region of Ocean Grid, these events have now been added to the search function of the viewer for anybody who has registered an avatar on Ocean Grid. Of course, if you are visiting by Hypergrid, it is up to your home grid to provide you with such functionality.
This is the chance to meet more people in OpenSim, like old times in Second Life™. There are dances, tutorials and much more. Check it out! :-)
Thanks to Outworldz for the script that makes this possible (though you'll need to change the URL from the old HYPEvents service if you want to use it - remember you'll need to run the script regularly e.g. a cronjob on Linux). There is a bug with non-breaking spaces which I have temporarily fixed in my fork of the script.
[COMPLETE] Upgrade to OpenSim 0.9.1.0 ("Snail" release)
The upgrade was performed successfully. All systems are working as normal, including the groups, profiles and offline IMs (except offline IMs by email to external recipients), as well as the Wifi web interface. The grid is accessible via the Hypergrid once again and listed on OpenSimWorld.
Offline IM by e-mail needs some further work so that emails are actually delivered. FreeSwitch voice is not currently available, nor is IRC but neither of these see much use either and are non-priority.
This version of OpenSim supports animated mesh, bakes-on-mesh and the new script engine YEngine, which are available on this grid.
To use YEngine, the code needs to be prefixed by the line //YEngine:lsl and for the additional functions you need to specify yoption includes as documented by Mobius Grid (incompletely at present) here - the default with no initial comment line is equivalent to //XEngine:lsl and will provide the usual scripting with LSL, OSL and MOD functions. Other languages (C# and VB.NET) are not secure at present and so are not available but YEngine provides functionality and structures that are a lot more like C#.
It would be worth checking if the Mute list now also blocks public chat, which it did not in the previous version.
Why isn't offline email to external recipients not working properly?
[INFO] Supporting 2DO.pm Hypergrid Events #1
You will notice that 2DO.pm Hypergrid events has been added to the login screen. There are also boards in the welcome area on Annwfn, the home region of Ocean Grid, as in many other OpenSim grids including OSGrid. This is the chance to meet more people in OpenSim, like old times in Second Life™. There are dances, tutorials and much more. Check it out! :-)
[NOTICE] FreeSwitch voice not currently available
FreeSwitch voice is not currently available. It is a low priority to restore it, given that it apparently sees very little use. However, we aim to restore it.
[COMPLETE] Upgrade to OpenSim 0.9.0.1 (release) / 0.9.1.0-dev
The upgrade was performed successfully - we are now, however, often/usually running version 0.9.1.0-dev, with which it is compatible. All systems are working as normal, including the groups, profiles and offline IMs (except offline IMs by email to external recipients). The grid is accessible via the Hypergrid once again and listed on OpenSimWorld. Some minor maintenance was required to restore the PHP world map on the web site.
The code for offline IM by e-mail has largely been restored (due to the upgrade to PHP7 causing some functions to be deprecated) but the SMTP server needs some further work checking so that emails are actually sent delivered. Some SSL certificates for web sites need some brief attention. The Wifi interface needs to be restored, although this is not critical because few people register: most traffic to the grid is via Hypergrid. FreeSwitch voice is not currently available, nor is IRC but neither of these see much use either and are non-priority. For back-end purposes, the settings for Monit need to be migrated to the new server to mitigate any downtime.
Ed.: (1) The Wifi interface is working again.
Ed.: (2) The new mute list module works, including the PHP back end: avatars are greyed-out and IM is blocked but they are not blocked on public chat as of OpenSim 0.9.1.0-dev, which we are using for testing now.
Ed.: (3) Monit is working.
Ed.: (4) Resolved: there was a problem with mixed content on https://wifi.oceangrid.net that blocked the reset password button from working.
