Weekly Dev Update #92

17 March 2020Admin

Hey Y’all, 

This week has been a little slower, with people working from home due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, we’re still on track for the 24th of March Valiant Vidar hard fork. We’ve fixed some final Lokinet 0.7.0 prerelease bugs. We have also concluded testing on upgrades to Lokid and Loki storage server, and have checked them off for release. Session will benefit from these upgrades to the Loki network as Service Node operators upgrade.

Loki Onion Explorer


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 fixed a few last minute issues, but overall are still pleased with the status of the 0.7 release and have started looking ahead to a future 0.8 release. As of this writing there are 138 active 0.7.0 (release candidate) Lokinet mainnet routers and the mainnet is working well; we remain confident that Lokinet is ready to be deployed network-wide with the upcoming Valiant Vidar hardfork.
