Presence service now working

After lots of debugging it was found that the code and database definitions that handled presence of avatars was out of sync for the PostgreSQL database. This has been corrected and the grid now records and reports presence of avatars on the grid as expected.  

This will make it possible to fix other issues that relies on presence service to work. First and foremost offline IM messaging. While this is being sorted out a temporary stopgap has been applied, but it will most likely cause you to see duplicates of messages sent to you. 

mono updated

Mono has been updated to version 4.0.2.5 for all services and simulators. The update contains bug fixes and performance improvements. Lower memory use on the sim servers have been observed after the update.

OS X and mono updated

All servers are now running OS X 10.10.4 which has a number of performance and security fixes. In addition the discoveryd DNS daemon that has caused lots of DNS related issues on OS X 10.10.x has now been reverted to the true and tested mDNSResponder. 

OS X server has been upgraded to 4.1.3

In addition mono was upgraded from version 3.12.1 to 4.0.1 with a number of performance improvements and bug fixes. 

Overall the updates should make for a more responsive and secure grid.
