Weekly Dev Update #82
Last week was our final week of holidays, and a majority of the team is back into the office as of this week. However, some members of the dev team did work over the break. Last week, these team members primarily focused on work related to the Loki Messenger rebrand to Session; we also deployed a few patches to the Loki Launcher and did some cleanup work on Lokinet.
If you’re on our Discord you can catch Jeff, the lead developer of LLARP, live streaming as he codes at https://www.twitch.tv/uguu25519. He typically streams on Tuesday mornings, 9am – 12pm Eastern (US) time.
