OpenSimulator 0.7 Released

OpenSimulator 0.7 has now been released.  There are considerable architectural changes between this release and 0.6.9, including major user database table changes, a new Hypergrid protocol version (1.5) and the consolidation of all grid services into one ROBUST grid server instance by default.  Please see the release notes for more details.

When you run 0.7 for the first time with 0.6.9 databases the upgrade should be automatic but since this is a complicated procedure you will absolutely want to take database backups first.  We also recommend that you don’t copy old configuration files since the absence of some new settings may cause problems.  See the 0.7 upgrade notes for more details.

As always, OpenSim is an alpha level project, which means that there remain many, many bugs and various missing features.
