Offline messages are now delivered by email as well as saved for when you log in. There is no facility to reply to offline messages by email, however, so you need to log in to Ocean Grid to do this.

We are now running a PSYC server that is backwards compatible with both IRC and XMPP. This meant replacing the simple IRC daemon ngIRCd with psyced. Information on how to connect is available on the website.

The recent upgrades to the web site had caused offline messaging and the ability to mute avatars to fail. This has now been restored. Note that receiving offline messages by email is not implemented.

The upgrade is complete, which has enabled all 1.x, 2.x and 3.x viewers to be used on the grid. The connection information on the web site will be has been updated accordingly.

Profiles and search have been restored, and profile data has now been copied across from the old database tables to the new ones, so it will be visible in avatar profiles once again.

Profiles work fine in world, but profile text does not appear on the web site, following the upgrade. This is under investigation. Search works except for searches by place: this may be resolvable in future.

Profile text now appears on the web site, although the formatting needs work and is formatted correctly.
