July 2015
Updated to OpenSim 0.8.2 Dev
  • Updates brought in from OpenSim 0.8.1 and 0.8.2 (Dev)
  • Script changes -- two new OSSL functions (osForceOtherSit, osGetGender) plus new and improved LSL functions (llCastRay, llGetGeometricCenter, llGetBoundingBox, llGetEnv)
  • Other notable changes -- change to how terrain updates are handled; performance metrics; World managers can "kick" a user via the Estate Management dialog; "Grab" objects via control+drag to move them and control+shift+drag tp rotate them; etc.
Improved Item Exchange with Other Grids
  • "This change will make it much easier to pick up items in other grids and be sure that they will be allowed to enter and leave Kitely freely."
  • Updated list of supported OSSL functions to reflect new functions and permissions
  • Bug fixes -- Transfer Stations work again (fixes bug that came in 0.8.2); Group access to worlds now works for Hypergrid users too; short form kitely.com:8002 allowed in World Map search, but using the full form grid.kitely.com:8002 is recommended

  • Find and fix slow scripts

Monitor World Performance
  • New "Active World" panel charts the world's performance while it is active, in terms of:
    • Active Time – how long the world has been active in the current session.
    • Visitors – the current number of avatars in the world.
    • CPU (Number) – the current CPU usage of the world.
    • CPU (Graph) – a history of the CPU usage.
    • Packets (Graph) – the number of networking packets sent between the world and the viewers that are connected to it.
  • "Stop world" link added
  • Guide for Optimizing World Performance
