Update Friday, Oct 11th 2019
Thought it was about time for a new one of these threads, seeing as how I’m now working under a new tranche of funds covering October to December.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me, anyhow, mostly with the large PR adding sending and listening functionality via TOR. I may have one or two more modifications to make, but I’ll hopefully have this merged into master over the next couple of days, along with a detailed post on how to use it. We’re hopeful that the usage of TOR can mitigate many of the problems we’ve seen with transaction exchange (particularly over HTTP,) and I’m looking forward to getting feedback on its use in the wild.
The other major topic has been the release and announcement of the (hopefully final) beta of 2.1.0. Other than a quick beta.4 of the wallet to address an unintended URL issue affecting exchanges, everything seems to be okay, and I believe we should be doing a final 2.1.0 release over the next week.
So all full steam ahead here and enjoying it. Thinking about planning for 3.0.0, on the wallet side anyhow I’m thinking we should include (and I’ll shortly be working on):
- Continue to refine TOR functionality as described above
- Better wallet state updates see conversation here
- Interactive wallet713 style CLI mode
Including the upcoming discussion on release packaging, there’s plenty here to keep me occupied and out of trouble into the foreseeable future.
That’s all for now. Haven’t said this out loud for a while, but it bears remembering…‘You Grinnin’, you winnin!’
