2009-05-21 10:40AM: The 1.26.4 rolling restart is complete.
2009-05-21 08:20AM: Due to an error in the rolling restart, we accidentally started re-deploying 1.26.3. The rolling restart will start over, deploying 1.26.4. This means that regions already restarted will need to be restarted again. We apologize for this inconvenience.
2009-05-21 05:00AM: Rolling restarts will be in progress this morning from 7AM till 11AM.
2009-05-20 09:50AM: The first-half rolling restarts is complete.
2009-05-20 06:52AM: The first-half rolling restarts is beginning.
2009-05-18 10:05AM: The pilot roll is complete.
We will be deploying server version 1.26.4 to Second Life the week of May 18. The rolling restart will follow this schedule:
- Mon. 05/18, 9-11AM : a pilot roll of ~3000 regions
- Wed. 05/20, 7-11AM : half of Second Life will be restarted
- Thu. 05/21, 7-11AM : the remainder of Second Life will be restarted
As with all of our server deploys, each region will be restarted once during one of the rolling restart periods. Most regions will be down no more than 5-10 minutes, although some fraction of the regions will take 20-30 minutes to upgrade. If your region stays down for more than 30 minutes, please contact support. Each region will receive warnings starting 5 minutes before that region is restarted.
Release notes describing what is new in server 1.26.4 can be found on this page on the Second Life wiki.
