This week Oz Linden has said that Linden Lab will be starting the long awaited roll-out of the mesh-code to support mesh starting “in days rather than weeks” on the main grid of Second Life. Visit the Mesh Live Volunteers SL wiki page for more details and this page has just recently been created by Linden Lab.

If all goes according to the PLAN, we should be able to use Mesh on a few Main Grid regions tomorrow. #SecondLife (via meeting w/ OzLinden)

There are 3 release candidate “channels”, each consisting of about 10% of all the SL regions, and the main channel with the remaining 70%.
Server release team said that they will not rollout mesh to a full RC channel, but first create a micro-channel with a very limited number of region. If all goes well, it will go to a RC channel, and then to the full grid.
