Weekly Dev Update #128
This week the Lokinet team continued working on fixes for the Mac release, which had some unresolved issues in the installer/uninstaller. The Loki Core team worked on the 8.1.4 release, which fixes a few issues exchanges were encountering and adds some new features to the wallet which are likely to be used in the Chainflip Service Node airdrop. Capping things off, the Session team began a large refactorisation effort which we will be talking about publicly in the coming weeks.
Remove unused wallet address parameter
List current stakes
Add GUI wallet snapshot builds
Only compile CN_Monero_hash on Android
Add new staking methods to wallet API: requestStakeUnlock, canRequestStakeUnlock
