We have deployed a new server version (version 188.8.131.52352) to the “Second Life Beta Server” channel of the Preview Grid. This server version fixes the group permissions bugs described in the SVC-2489, SVC-2495, and SVC-2499.
The “Second Life Production Server” channel on the Preview Grid has the same 1.22.2 version that appears in the production Second Life environment; that is, the “Second Life Production Server” channel includes the bug with group permissions. If you log into the Preview Grid, make sure you know the version that the region you are in is running when drawing conclusions about whether things are fixed or whether new things are broken.
Assuming that testing goes well, we will be deploying this bug fix to the production Second Life environment in a rolling restart this week. More information about that rolling restart will be posted as it becomes available. This version will be called 1.22.3 when it is deployed to Second Life; the version number currently used on the Preview Grid is temporary.
Please drop by the Preview Grid to test this release! Instructions for logging into the Preview Grid can be found on the recent blog post about that grid. All accounts except for those created within the last few weeks are available on the Preview Grid. If you find problems relevant to the issues mentioned above, please add your problems in the comments. If you find new problems, you can enter them as a SVC bug in our public issue tracker; please indicate “1.22.3 Server” as the version under “Affects Version”.
For testing purposes, we’ve created a group named “Group Permissions Bug Test” that has open enrollment, and “Always allow ‘Create Objects'” enabled for everyone in the group. We have carved out a parcel of land in two sims on the Preview Grid owned by this group, with Object Entry and Create Objects disabled:
- Old (production) version, “Second Life Production Server” channel : Periwinkle (232, 122, 22)
- New (in test) version, “Second Life Beta Server” : Purple (22, 125, 21)
