Security updates applied to grid servers

All grid servers have been upgraded with the latest security updates from Apple. 

The grid was down for about 2 hours during the update due to one server being particularly pesky.

The Bulletsim physics engine used on the grid has been upgraded with support for Raycast. After some stability testing the support has been deployed to all regions. 

Database server upgraded

The grid database server has been updated with PostgreSQL 9.6.5 which is mainly a security update. For the changes, check the release notes

All grid and database servers have been updated to run macOS 10.12.6 containing a number of security and bug fixes. The grid was down for about 4 hours as a hardware issue on the database server had to be fixed before resuming operation.

Grid servers updated

All grid servers have been updated to macOS 10.12.5 which had a number of security issues plugged. 

In addition updated version of OpenSim dev 0.9.1 has been been deployed with improved database communication that gives sim loading and terrain fetches a healthy performance boost. 

Land parcels now will show the traffic on the parcel (which is calculated from the number of avatars visiting and the time spent on the parcel.)

Database server upgraded

The PostgreSQL database server has been upgraded to version 9.6.3. There are a number of performance improvements, security and bug fixes in this version. For details check the Release Announcement.

Access to individual regions restored for Hypergrid travelers

It is again possible for Hypergrid travelers to visit individual regions on XMIR.

Database server updated

The database server has been upgraded to macOS 10.12.4 from 10.11.6. In addition macOS Server has been upgraded to 5.3. The combined update has a number of security and performance enhancements (including plugging issues exploited by various intelligence agencies as exposed by Wikileaks.) 

MySQL and PostgreSQL database versions are at the latest revisions per this posting. 

All other grid servers are at the same versions as above. 

Grid on OpenSim 0.9 release candidate

The grid is now running the OpenSim 0.9 release candidate server version with a few additions that probably will find their way into the release version of 0.9. For now it runs with the Bullet physics engine, but tests with the ubODE engine has been promising, so we may see a switch later. There are some compatibility issues with scripts on ubODE that needs to be explored further.
