Weekly Dev Update #83

13 January 2020Admin

Hey Y’all,

Last week was a busy one due to the Nimble Nerthus hardfork, which was successful in both moving Lokinet routers onto mainnet and enabling Blink on mainnet. We are still monitoring the stability of both of these features and will release updates as needed. We also made progress with the Session rebranding on both desktop and mobile, and Session is now very close to completion on both platforms.


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.

What went on last week with Lokinet: 

Last week’s mainnet launch of Lokinet with the Nimble Nerthus hardfork revealed some unanticipated issues related to propagation of DHT lookups by clients across the network due to the much larger size of the mainnet network versus the previous test network. We pushed out a 0.6.2 release to address some of these issues, and are continuing to develop additional fixes to address the remaining issues.

The Session redesign is nearly complete on all platforms. Last week we also implemented a solution for push notifications on Apple devices, as well as starting work on private group chats for iOS.
