Weekly Dev Update #84

21 January 2020Admin

Hey Y’all,

This week consisted of significant progress towards the Session release.

Loki Core

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.

What went on last week with Lokinet: 

This was an intense week for the Lokinet team; we identified some significant problems with the network resulting from the number of routers that came online on mainnet with the Nimble Nerthus hardfork. We initially pushed out a 0.6.3 release to try to address them, but that failed to work for separate reasons — this update ended up filling router queues with Lokinet router lookups, causing even more messages to be dropped.  So we went back to the drawing board and thought of several changes for a 0.6.4 release that we hope will improve network performance. We also developed a plan to address some more fundamental issues on the full-size network. This plan will be introduced in a 0.7 release, as it requires more drastic changes.

PR Activity:

Internal testing has now begun for the Session application, and we will be merging a number of new features into the Session rebrand codebase over the coming weeks, including private group chats, proxy requests and Sealed Sender functionality.
