Weekly Dev Update #75
Last week we finished the last of our edge case testing for multi device and we’re readying ourselves for a release tomorrow. This will contain the first version of multi device, which allows for contact syncing and syncing of sent and received messages. While multi device for Loki Messenger has been our primary focus, the Loki core team also continues to put the finishing touches on Blink, specifically focusing on how Blink transactions are treated in the mempool.
