We will be applying a block on our 18.104.22.168720 version Thursday evening of this week. Only users on this version will be effected.
It is being blocked because it is nearly a year old and does not support any of the major improvements LL has made over the past year like Materials, Server Side Appearance or Fitted Mesh. Also because of our promise to only allow 3 versions on the grid at any given time. 4.4.0 is now our 4th oldest.
As of today’s statistics from LL there are approximately 5500 users on this build. If you are one of them please update NOW rather than wait until you cannot log in and have to scramble to download our latest.
Again… If you are using 4.4.2 or newer this will not have any impact on you.
While this block WILL effect Opensim grids it will be the last as we have the ability in all newer builds to block independently from grid to grid.
EDIT: There has been concern and accusations that we are using back doors or trojans in order to implement our viewer blocks. To address this I have created a wiki page explaining exactly how this system works. This can be read here http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fsdata_communications
