Bugging the update

Well, Second Life was up for hour untill logins where closed again.
12:05 SLT - Logins Disabled While Grid Issues Investigated Shortly after we opened up Second Life 1.11.2, we started seeing issues with IMs and Friends Online. We have disabled logins while the issue is investigated.
It closed before i had a change to login, might as well blog a bit more. :P

Today's update did look quite promising. Besides some changes, it consists mostly of bug fixes, which makes me actually smile. Two of them makes me the happiest.
  • Fixed a bug where right-clicking the edges of the viewer window automatically selected pie menu items
  • Friends list now sorts by online status
The first is a recent annoying bug, that came when they made the gestureal pie menu. I'm not even sure most people have noticed that, now you can hold down the right mouse button and move quickly through the pie menu, like a gesture. Glad the bug where it auto selects is fixed, it was very annoying.

The second is something that allways seemed wierd to me, and made me never use my friends list. I allways used my IM window to see who was online and open their profile.

But all the bug fixes are great!
Second Life 1.11.2(4) is now running on the main grid. Release notes are as follows:
