2013 has been a great year for OpenSim with huge growth in regions, users and active users. This month the top 40 OpenSim grids passed the big 30, 000 regions mark and now has nearly 4,000 more regions than Second Life. I would imagine the positive trend will continue into 2014 and 2015+.

Apparently there are more major new developments coming in the pipeline. A new script engine and new improvements is in the works. Media on a Prim is still under the “implementation” phrase.
While checking the Avination Google+ page I saw a very interesting post by Leonie Gärtner about a new opensim development during a recent grid restart. Apparently Avination has introduced Multi Attach where you can have up to five attachments worn at the same time which sounds pretty interesting to try out. This is going to open up many possibilities on opensim grids and SL.
The post about Multi Attach…
Avination, one of the few grids actively supporting OpenSimulator development, introduced Multi Attach today with its latest grid restart.
Today, with the latest restart of their grid, Avination introduced Multi Attach support to their server software.
While being available at Second Life this feature has not been implemented yet at any OpenSimulator based grid.
Like the already supported Multi Wear, a feature important for clothing designers and furries wanting to dress themselves decently, Multi Attach allows the same for attachments.
One avatar can now not only wear one attachment at each attachment point, but up to five attachments at the same time.
Good for tasks like building a log house for carrying nails and hammer in one hand! Imagine Roleplay – now you can wear armored gloves while wielding the Sword of the Ancients at the same time.
Just imagine the possibilities!
