Things moved faster than I expected. So, Maestro Linden announced in last night’s Server Beta meeting that Simon Linden’s work for LSL control of materials (normal and specular maps) is now available for testing on Aditi (the beta grid). The regions allocated for testing are roller-test102 and roller-test103, both on channel DRTSIM-253. They both have the server-side scripting support. I will remind you again that the SLurls are on Aditi. Of course, this is all a beta testing stage, so everything is work-in-progress, and the Lab itself is testing these new capabilities.
You can find more information on the Wiki page of the Server Beta User Group. I provide the details below as well.
