Augur Weekly Report — May 8th


Development Update

The Dev team has started working on Sprint 7 (Geriatrich Garlic). Unfortunately, some issues arose during the lead up to the planned UI redesign release which convinced us it was best to hold off on releasing the update. What this means is the dev team is now moving on to integration between The redesigned UI, the Augur SDK middleware (renamed from Augur State) and the v2 contracts.

Progress will be slow during this sprint as all of the integration work begins to test the hypothesis of how the software will come together. The first step this week is to get the UI trading flows working with the v2 contracts!

What’s Exciting, however, is that Zeppelin has officially begun audits of the V2 contracts! This is an important step toward a full understanding of any new attack surface exposed in the contract changes. Also, the changes needed to support the Dai Savings Rate are under development and planned to be finished this week. Be on the lookout for news related to the v2 launch plans and Augur upgrades!
