Quick Update [14 April 2017] on the status of WhiteCore:

Let me start with wishing you all a good Lent, Easter or whatever you celebrate the upcoming weekend.

For the past months the development on WhiteCore has gone slower and I personally wanted to explain why I, as a developer, am not working on WhiteCore every day anymore.

Since the start of February I gained some additional composure to my RL job which makes it a little harder for me to "claim" the 20% rule to work on my own projects.

Sadly that means that I had to reevaluate which projects I can do and which I will have to slow down on. WhiteCore is 1 of the projects that went into the slowdown mode for me.

This doesn't mean that development on WhiteCore has come to a grinding halt but just that it will take longer for new things to be added.

Also I did want to point out that we could use a LOT more issue reports on things that break when you use WhiteCore. I hope that the upcoming period more people will use our software and find bugs that we didn't know about.

Quick Update [13 Januari 2017] on the status of WhiteCore:

Let me start with wishing you all a good New Year, even when we're not allowed by tradition anymore ;)

In the last week of 2016 and starting 2017 the Development team behind WhiteCore had a sit in and discussed how we wanted to start 2017 with.

My personal goal for this year is to have another release out at the end of the year which hopefully will be one to remember. IWC integration, a working Marketplace and perhaps even more.

Also the DNE Scriptengine has become a block to our legs and should really be either upgraded to something better or just dropped and rebuild from scratch to be a better managed version. The problem that arrose early 2017 was that some functions looked okay but aren't exactly working as described.

Last but not least, I have made our own LibOMV part of the repository as a submodule. This means that you will always have the latest LibOMV in your repository so that incompatibility between functions is no longer an issue.

For those that pull our repository as a zip file through Github, PLEASE remember to pull the LibOMV repo as well as the Prebuild now depends on having it in there.

Quick Update [18 November 2016] on the status of WhiteCore:

At the moment the master might look a little messy as +Rowan Deppeler is doing some changes to the WebUI and also work is being done on the Library.

If you have anything that you'd like to see in the WhiteCore Library, please let us know in the comments so we can see if it's possible to add it.

As of now I have decided to leave this group as outside sources have informed me that this group is all based around Opensim and Hypergrid based grids.

Since WhiteCore is not and will not be a Hypergrid enabled building block for the near future, it would be wise for me to leave as posts might bleed through from other spots.

So I hope you all will have a good Community here, based on the building blocks of Opensim.

Release version 0.9.4 - Kultarr

We're happy to announce the latest release of WhiteCore which has focused mostly in getting the large issues out of the way for IWC and other options that will be added in the future.

For all the release notes and downloads, please look at this link:

Quick Update [19 September 2016] on the status of WhiteCore:

We're getting ready to release 0.9.4 in 13 days but so far we had 4 issues popup that might bring the release date back a little.

PLEASE test your local version thoroughly so we can make sure there's no other blocking issues before we start the preparations for the release.

Our aim is still to release the 1st of October but we wouldn't want to leave things hanging after the release so if you have any issues, please put them in the issue reporter:

Special Snapshot 11 Aug 2016

We proudly present to you, a new snapshot that will help us immensly when people would test it on their non production grids.

The main reason for this snapshot to be out is that there's a lot of changes made in the past period of month and we also are planning to freeze the codebase in September for a new release in October.

"My hope is that the snapshot will be tested a LOT and on different systems and hopefully issues will be reported in our Github issue reporter"

The snapshot can be grabbed from the tags page found here:

Quick Update [4 Aug 2016] on the status of WhiteCore:

Hello everyone,

Starting today when you post an issue report that doesn't have the complete predefined method used it will be closed.

We want issue reports to have more detail and thus we have generated a predefined template you can fill in. When you use that template, we have more detail and it's also easier for us to test things.

Quick Update [3 May 2016] on the status of WhiteCore:

As some of you might have noticed, the master branch isn't as stable as it was before. This has 2 reasons which I like to explain:

* First reason is that we're doing some heavy cleaning on some of the left over parts from OpenSim / AuroraSim that have krept into existance.

* Second reason is that we're also cleaning up a lot of dead code or upgrading things to have WhiteCore running smoother on all platforms.

So, if you're a grid and using our master branch, be warned that there might be a lot of breakage which sometimes won't be fixed in a short time.

You want to have a decent experience ? Use the Giant Step - Post Fixes that was released near Valentines Day.

We're glad to announce the release of version - Giant Step - Post Fixes

This version is our Valentines gift to all you Whitecorians out there, after doing some fixes and also optimalisations of the code.

The last commit was 1 of the upmost importance that we, as a team, decided we didn't want to wait till a new release date but also didn't want to make it a full release.

Download links will appear during this week in this post but for those that compile themselves, the code is in the branch of the main repo.

Happy Early Valentine :)
