We will be deploying Server Version 1.22.4 in a rolling restart this week, following our usual schedule:
- Tuesday evening : a “pilot roll” to ~200 regions
- Wednesday 05:00-09:00 am : a rolling restart to half of the hosts on the grid
- Thursday 05:00-09:00 am : a rolling restart of the rest of the grid
This server version includes some internal security and bug fixes, and should have no resident-facing differences from the previous version (1.22.3). Server version 1.22.4 is currently running on the “Second Life Beta Server” channel of the Preview Grid; for more information, see this status blog post from last week announcing that deploy to the Preview Grid.
As with all of our rolling restarts, each region should only be down for about 10 minutes. If your region stays down for more than 30 minutes, please contact support. All regions will receive a warning starting 5 minutes before they are restarted; there is no way for estate managers to delay the restart of a given region.
