After 22 weeks Linden Lab has finally announced the mesh timeline details for the Main Grid this summer. The roll out starts sometime in July 2011 to a limited set of regions then by the end of August 2011 everyone will be able to enjoy Mesh on the Main Grid if things go to plan that is. I’m glad that Linden Lab promised and delivered the mesh timeline details on time which is good news.
So, now that you are excited about trying it out on the Main Grid, we wanted to share the launch time line, as promised.
In July, we will enable a limited set of regions to use Mesh and will it roll out, in a phased approach, throughout August. By the end of August, everyone in Second Life will be able to import Mesh objects. Of course, if we run into unforeseen issues or bugs, then this time line will need to shift.
We know that you must have a lot of questions regarding policies, costs, and how Mesh objects will be weighted. Although we cannot share these details yet, we will continue to keep you informed on our progress and other relevant news on this blog.
So buckle up and get ready for a whole new wave of creativity in SL
I can’t wait. Yay!
