Update 2.5 for the Ozimals bunnies is coming on Thursday, July 11! This update brings all of our summer beach party fun, as well as some under-the-hood improvements and some delightful surprises! We will have much more information for you on release day, so dust off your Bingo hats, work on your tan, develop a taste for poi, and stay tuned! Here's a little sneak peek:
One of the reasons we are waiting until the 11th is that Linden Lab have announced their intention to start enabling Server Side Appearance, a/k/a Project Sunshine, on July 9th (in some regions at least). If you are using a current viewer, this should be the normal weekly episode of restarts for you--if you are NOT, you will have larger problems than un-updated bunnies. (See the Second Life blog for a quick overview! July 9th will be the start of the second of the three steps outlined in that post.) Waiting to do our update until a few days have passed will hopefully minimize the stress for all concerned.
The weekend before that is a holiday weekend in the US, when the Ozimals staff traditionally grills things, gets sunburned, and fights off alien invasions with their families and friends. Thus, we will have limited support from Thursday, July 4th, through Sunday, July 7th. If you need support during this time and cannot locate a CSR, please file a ticket--we will answer them as soon as we've prevented the Martians from landing. Many questions can be answered with the help of the community via the Ozimals inworld groups, too, so don't be shy to ask in group chat!
Mahalo, and much <3
