Weekly Dev Update #119

Weekly Dev Update #119

22 September 2020Admin

Hey Y’all, 

This week we finished up some very cool Session features, which will hopefully resolve a number of issues with unreliable push notifications. On the Lokinet side, we did some cross-project work which allows for the human-readable .loki names introduced in the Salty Saga hardfork. Speaking of the hardfork, the Loki Core team forked the public testnet a few days ago, so you can now test Pulse and other goodies. Check it out here: https://loki.network/2020/09/19/salty-saga-testnet-testing-guide/ 

Loki Core 


You can catch Jeff, the lead developer of LLARP, live streaming as he codes at https://www.twitch.tv/uguu25519. He typically streams on Tuesday mornings, 9am – 12pm Eastern (US) time.

What went on last week with Lokinet: This week was mostly spent on fixes and polish towards a final Lokinet 0.8 release: working LNS support (now active on testnet), Windows build fixes, and updating various small issues in the code. The biggest user-facing feature this week was the addition of LNS support: .loki LNS domains can be registered (and are working!) on the Lokinet testnet currently, and will be available for registration on the main network as of the Loki 8.x hard fork, tentatively scheduled for early October. Registration periods (or renewals) can be from 1 to 10 years. (Note that they will require the new 0.8 version of Lokinet to actually resolve, but can be tested out now on the public testnet using the Lokinet `dev` branch).
