As mentioned previously, there will be a scheduled service outage for Second Life today at 6am Pacific (13:00 GMT). The duration is expected to be 2 hours. This will be followed later in the day by a rolling restart to update the code for all regions.
No new viewer will be required following the update.
(The beta grid will remain closed during the outage; we should have updated beta grid status within a few days.)
[Update @ 7:15am] The update went well, we’re finishing up testing before re-enabling logins.
[Update @ 7:26am] We’re done and open! See the next blog posting for status regarding support and auction logins on the web site.
[Update @ 1:50pm] The rolling restart may be delayed until tomorrow. A process that is responsible for distributing the code to all of the machines that make up Second Life apparently didn’t complete last night, and this needs to happen before the rolling restart. This process is under way now, but may take several hours.
