Weekly Dev Update #181
Core devs have added placeholders for transaction decoy selection, which will be replaced once a suitable decoy selection distribution is discovered. The core devs also spent time this week working on documentation of the Oxen daemon public RPC — a sample of the docs can be found here: https://jagerman.com/doc-sample1/

Lokinet devs primarily spent this week working on other projects, but managed to work in a couple of important PRs: one fixing Windows support (which the 0.9.8 release for service nodes had broken), and one aimed at documentation improvements, both cleaning up some long-obsolete documentation, and adding some new high-level documentation about Lokinet.
