As volunteered software engineers we somehow have to find some extra time to work on these blog posts 😆. In the last part of last year, we skipped some release dates for these posts because there wasn’t enough inspiration for content or there wasn’t enough time. This year we tent to release a new post at the end of each month.
Well, long time no see I guess. But a lot has been changed during the holiday season. Firstly moved the codebase on a new level by simply upgrading tor to the latest version, improving peer discovery, investing time in…
Development updates are rare these days… That doesn’t mean we aren’t working our butts off, though. It’s rather the opposite. Writing these updates is really time consuming 😃. So, we might keep this schedule of one update per month. When we originally started the Verge Currency Development Update series, there was a huge gap of information we needed to pass on, so this worked. But the situation has changed. Between all our social media platforms, we feel that the community knows what is currently going on and have a good understanding of the current state of Verge currency’s development’s.
30 editions later, and we still have a lot to write about. In this edition we’ll talk about whats happening with the next Verge Core release 6.0, the future of the Electrum wallets and what’s been going on with the newly created Verge Docker images.
Before we get in the meaty stuff, we first want to wow you with the fact that its possible to test out the upcoming Version 6 of the Verge core (Lumos) here. Once the pre-release version has been tested properly, we will be ready to release it and let everyone know. And then its up…
It’s been a while! Let's get you up to speed on where things are at in terms of developments for Verge Currency!
I’m not gonna lie, some pretty technical stuff has been going on. Let's dive right in!
After talking about a long term trend within the last development, we’ve internally decided to ship the first face of our feature which will basically establish more time for us to prepare more and more stuff for future usage, while we maintain the usability and economy of our currency.
One of these changes includes new halvings and they are coming — quite…
As far as I know it’s time for the development update again!
Since we had lately released the newest version (V5.3.0) of our shiny codebase, we have seen various performance improvements and several bug fixes compared to V4.
We all know the current state of the art and what has been built on top of Verge, but we also want to keep an eye on what is actually coming in the future of Verge.
Yes, you heard right. In order to move forward, we’ll equip the codebase with the capabilities to send funds to stealth addresses by default. We will…
10x engineers did some amazing stuffs this week! (nerd joke)
We planned for what’s coming in the next version of the iOS wallet (v1.2.0) and also started working on the various parts that need to be integrated. You might have already seen the upcoming Mars Mode created by Ivan! Well it’s gorgeous and we hope you’ll like it when it comes in the next release!
It’s been two weeks! :D
The last two weeks have passed incredibly fast, but the development for the Android wallet hasn’t stopped! My girlfriend was a little upset about me spending our anniversary on the wallet, but she is incredibly understanding. She knows the community needs the wallet! (just kidding, our anniversary weekend was really nice — I’m not a monster!)
Now, less blah, blah, blah and more wow, wow, wow!! Let’s go!
I’d like to start this section by mentioning Sevco , who has tirelessly worked by contributing and implementing the sorting features on transactions as you can see…
Whoops, we forgot last weeks development update… luckily no one reads these anyway, so this might be the last one! If this article gets over 2,000 claps we’ll keep them coming every two weeks. The final score needs to be over 2k on July 3rd, 2019 :D
Now on to the developments as of the last two weeks…
We’ve released an update on Tuesday 7th June 2019, to the initial v1.0.0 release including a Moon mode (dark theme), 13 languages, the new logo and some other minor tweaks. Of course v1.1.0 had a lovely bug in it making it hard…
It’s yet another codebase rewind of the last two weeks. Let’s see what happened this time to our codebase:
Enabling the view of the estimated hash power per algorithm and also all-in-one.
It just work like, rewinding the last 360 blocks to get an average hashpower by the required difficulty and time taken to mine the blocks. More info can be founds right here: commit-208d1bd
