Weekly Dev Update #121

Weekly Dev Update #121

05 October 2020Admin

Hey Y’all, 

This week the Loki team released the Loki software suite for the Salty Saga hardfork; the whole Loki team has been working very hard on new releases, including releases for the Loki storage server, Lokinet, Loki Core and even Session. If you are a Service Node, operator make sure to follow these instructions to update: https://docs.loki.network/ServiceNodes/DebianPackageGuide/#upgrading 

Loki Core 

The default GitHub branch for Loki core has changed to the “dev” branch, to better reflect our progress as we code. At the same time a new `stable` branch has been created to contain updates to our current release (8.x) version. The `master` branch, which previously contained our current release code, has been retired.

What went on last week with Lokinet: The past week in Lokinet was all focused on last-minute fixes to get 0.8.0 out the door, dealing with some last-minute issues that cropped up. Releases are always a bit challenging because different configurations and environments (e.g. actual mainnet instead of testnet) make things pop up that need urgent fixes before we roll out the release. But we got through it and got the release out the door! Our next steps for this upcoming week are to follow up with new builds for the Lokinet GUI (aka Control Panel) and installers for Windows, Mac, and new Debian/Ubuntu packages for Linux, as well as addressing a few issues that came up in the 0.8.0 upgrades that have happened (such as improving the descriptiveness of some error messages).

Also note that, as in loki-core, we’ve changed our branch policy: the default code branch that you see on GitHub is now our development branch (`dev`) rather than the stable release branch.  We’re now putting our stable release code (e.g. for 0.8.x updates) in a new `stable` branch and are retiring the old `master` branch.
