Weekly Dev Update #46
We’re really focusing on integration this week, with lots of work going into setting up testnets and improving the stability of Lokinet. This week we finally released our Lokinet alpha – I encourage you to go and test it out! You can see more information here: https://lokinet.org
Work on alternate storage of Service Node checkpoints since they do not appear on the blockchain:
Allow get_service_nodes to work with block height and block hash:
Ensure clear() also clears out the key image blacklist:
Remove loading checkpoints from DNS:
Backport dev to master:
Initialise test class members to 0 to fix intermittent failures:
Revert behaviour for is_alternative_block_allowed :
The Loki Launcher is a node js package that will allow for the independent management of all the components to run a full Service Node. This includes managing Lokinet, Lokid and the Loki storage server. When Loki Service Nodes begin to route data and store messages for Lokinet and Loki Messenger, the Loki Launcher will need to be run on every single Service Node.
Right now the Launcher is in a testing phase, so you should only use it on Testnet and Stagenet – though feedback/issues and pull requests would be greatly appreciated!
Lokinet path fix (last week had incorrectly reverted a previous proper refactor, this fixes the revert)

This week we continue with the process of porting Lokinet to iOS. We’re up to interfacing Lokinet with the iOS VPN API .
Pull request is in for the Lokinet wrapper:
Changed a few things in the core to support iOS
Got things to cross compile for arm64
Created a Swift wrapper for the daemon
Set up the iOS network extension / VPN stuff needed for custom tunnelling
Made the network extension configure based on the configuration file generated by the core
Work continues here:
The Loki Messenger client is in a mostly complete state. Right now the focus is being put on the message server and integration with Lokinet and Lokid.
Modify and Merge Signal upstream changes:
Refactor long polling for better concurrent requests:
