Opensim 0.7.3 upgrade in progress

We are currently in the process of upgrading the servers to OpenSimulator 0.7.3 release. Currently, one of our server has been migrated, and we are checking if everything is going fine before making a rolling upgrade of all regions. We are quite excited by new features and optimizations included in this release and we are confident…
