Weekly Dev Update #90

02 March 2020Admin

Hey Y’all,

Last week we focused on Session patches for Android and iOS clients, including improved multi-device functionality and error reporting. We also finished and tested the Lokinet design changes for 0.7.0, which means that we can begin doing limited deployment of the new and improved Lokinet across the Service Node network over the next few weeks. 

Loki Core


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: We solved the last of the introset publish and handover issues, and are preparing a 0.7.0 release candidate for testing on mainnet.  If you’re interested in helping us test this on the mainnet before the next fork, contact Jason on Session (052bcac1d94688955d3ae16e19adc960d545b1b0eb1b3898f1e4e81080ced93d29) or Telegram (@jagerman42). The performance of the development branch is now extremely stable, with hours of continuous pings without a single drop and perfectly reliable voice chat over the testnet, and we’re confident that this release is mainnet-ready.

Loki MQ 

Loki MQ is a communications layer for various components that allows more efficient and reliable communication between service nodes and storage servers and, in the future, between wallets and nodes and other Loki components.

  • Considerable improvements and tests related to using Loki MQ for non-service node direct communication over both encrypted and unencrypted channels:


  • Integration of LokiMQ into Loki-core’s RPC and quorumnet interfaces (WIP).
