I know is a little late news reply on this version from Justin’s Blog.

OpenSimulator 0.7.5 was release on February 8, 2013.

Hi folks.  Today sees the release of OpenSimulator 0.7.5, the open-source multi-platform 3D virtual environment server and metaverse platform available from  Despite having a minor point release number, it actually contains a very large number of features and fixes with many improvements to user inventory, scripting, mesh importing, archiving and an update to Crista Lopes’ Hypergrid 2.0 protocol, amongst many other things.  Please see the release notes for more details.

As always, huge thanks go to the OpenSimulator community for contributing to this release.  This includes all the people who patiently answer user queries in the various fora, irc channels and mailing lists, everyone who tests and submits high-quality bug reports, all the developers who contribute patches and all the people  who use OpenSimulator to create great virtual environment distributions.


OpenSimulator Released

Hi folks.  OpenSimulator was released today.  This is a minor release for the OpenSimulator 0.7 line, so it contains only bug fixes rather than features such as media on a prim.  See the release notes for more details.

There may be a little confusion since some people are already talking about OpenSimulator 0.7.1.  This might be because 0.7.1 (Dev) is the version number in the Master development branch.  However, this is not yet in release phase – the latest release remains OpenSimulator for now.

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.
