We’re conducting some scheduled maintenance on the voice servers tomorrow, 2008-05-21, from 2:00 AM to 5:00 AM Pacific time. This maintenance consists of a web API update and a media server update. These changes will be pushed in the form of a rolling update, which means that each region will experience a voice-only downtime for a few minutes as the individual media server supporting a particular region is restarted.
This update also includes:
- Capacity improvements for large positional (spatial) channels
- A fix for an issue that causes problems when joining channels with single quotes in the channel name
I think you’re right; this should’ve gone on the status page from the get-go.
My thought was to keep the status page for things happening Right Now, and to put the advance warning here. But checking back through some earlier posts on http://status.secondlifegrid.net/
I see it’s being used for some early advisories, not just issues in progress.
Sorry for the confusion. I’ll copy it over there.
