llName2Key now works

The LSL function llName2Key was one of the LSL functions that never was implemented on OpenSim.  It returns a key the Agent ID for the named agent in the region. If there is no agent with the specified name currently signed onto the region, this function returns the value NULL_KEY.

Names are always provided in the form "First[ Last]" or "first[.last]" (first name with an optional last name.) If the last name is omitted a last name of "Resident" is assumed. 

OpenSim grids usually don’t implement the Resident last name but requires proper First and Last names, so returning Resident should be an edge case. 

OpenSim also has more complex Agent ID as hypergrid visitors to a grid will have the hypergrid addess appended to the name in addition to have a dot between First and Last. Therefore names of the form First.Last @grid.xmir.org:8002 or First.Last.@grid.xmir.org:8002 will work. Viewers like Firestorm will also add an additional @in front of the First name and variations thereof should also work in most cases. 

Mono update

All servers are now on mono 5.14.0.177 which has better performance and memory handling compared to previous versions.  

In additions performance and stability improvements have been deployed to all region servers.  

Updates deployed

The http server has been updated for all region and grid servers with a version that has a fix for a memory leak that caused servers to exhaust their memory leading to region and grid server crashes. To work around the bug, the grid servers had to be frequently restarted. It is expected the update will restore stability to these servers. 

The OSSL function osRegionNotice has been updated with increased security to ensure the issuer has the permission to do so. In addition a new OSSL function osRegionNotice(string agentID, string msg) is active on the grid.

The Hypergates in the region Landmark are again working after the script has been updated to work with the current server code and Bulletsim version.
