FIRESTORM UPDATE 18.104.22.168470
September 9, 2022
With our previous release being somewhat minor, this one could be considered a major update!
LOT’S of new shiny including some major code merges from Linden Lab bringing us to parity with SLV 6.6.2.
New QA Process and viewer update cadence.
Yes, a new update already! As was mentioned in the previous release post we have moved to a more rapid QA and release cycle. This will mean you will receive updates and fixes far more frequently. Our QA process now revolves largely around our in world Preview Group, of which YOU TOO can be a member! We issue a new build every week to this group, and after the 4th build is sent out, if no blockers are found… that build gets promoted to a Release Candidate. One week after that we aim to issue an official update. Viewer updates can be expected roughly every 6-8 weeks. This is the completion of the first cycle using this strategy and I must say, it has been a surprisingly big success. MANY thanks to our Formal Beta testers and all members in our (open to the public) Preview Group. Please consider joining the group to get the latest shiny all the time!
