We updated Kitely today with several improvements, including an enhanced version of OpenSim 0.8; experimental support for BulletSim; and better in-world search. We contributed some of our patches to OpenSim core so other grids will be able to benefit from them as well...

One wonders if the steadly loss of Second Life private regions - the main source of Linden Lab income - which has seen over 1500 gone this year alone is now starting to be matched by a steadly loss of content creators seeking other virtual platforms on which to do business. Not all are leaving Second Life however but many are looking outward in the wake of the recent Linden TOS scandle. Hosoi Ichiba has already been doing successful business on the Kitely Virtual Market Place and will re-build their SL region on the Kitely grid accoding to the article.

Very sad news. Those were really beautiful SIMs.
