0.8.1.1 is out, and why it is important to upgrade
Diva just released 0.8.1.1 aka 0.8.1-post-fixes in git branch.
« Note that this does not incorporate the
improvements done so far in the development
branch. The new release is just 0.8.1 with that
nasty bug fixed. »
This nasty bug is Mantis 7514 : Can't rez items from OSGrid on my own grid.
Actually, it does not affect only OSGrid but all
MONO grids running 0.8.0.3 and onward.
From Ferd Frederix : Objects serialized on a MONO
grid suffer a corruption that make it useless on
a Windows grid. The XML Name Space identifier
"xmlns:" gets repeated as "xmlns:xmlns:", which
causes the serializer on Windows machines to
abort with "Deserialization of xml failed.
Exception System.Xml.XmlException: The ':'
character, hexadecimal value 0x3A, cannot be
included in a name".
Upgrading MONO grids to 0.8.1.1 will stop
corruption occuring when objects are taken out
of the grid via HG. However, it will *not* fix
corrupt assets already present in your database,
nor the ones that will come in afterwards from
If you are running a MONO grid, chances are you
are not seeing the issue. But your grid is
passing bad objects to other grids. Then they
propagate again and again.
