Mono Scheduler testing in Second Life

A simulator which incorporates a revised Mono Scheduler was deployed to Aditi, the preview grid, on 19 March 2009. For the next two weeks Residents will be able to go to these regions and test their scripts on this scheduler. Please return any feedback you have to the JIRA listed below. We’ll use that feedback to fine tune the scheduler performance before we merge it into trunk for release with an upcoming server version.
