Monthly Roundup for Holo & Holochain

Welcome to our monthly roundup! October was nothing short of exciting as we gear up for a public release of Elemental Chat and shared our new Holo roadmap to keep our community up to date on what the future holds.

Q4 2021: Update on Milestones and Progress

Earlier this month, we shared our latest Leadership & Org Update with you all. You may have noticed an uptick in stories, blogs, apps, news and announcements coming from Holo recently. In large part this is simply because there is much more that can be built on Holochain than ever before. The proof of this reality is that the wider community of projects and developers are beginning to move with haste in their respective projects. Simultaneously the Holo development team is now unblocked. Certain feature development had been on pause until Holochain had finished updating to a necessary level of features and stability. This is huge.

In order to make the sequencing of our interdependent work more visible to our community, we refreshed our roadmap for Holo and included some key Holochain releases.

3 More Holochain ReleasesI

In a Dev Pulse that was published last week, Paul talks through the latest 3 versions of Holochain that have been released. This Dev Pulse is packed full of information on not only the releases, but Dev Camp updates, networking fixes, and more information on Sweettest, a Rust-based Holochain testing framework. You won’t want to miss this update!

Read the full Dev Pulse.

Gosh, now that the dev team has moved to weekly releases, there’s a lot to catch up on when I skip a week! The most recent Holochain releases have a number of bug fixes that improve performance and reliability, along with a new feature (post_commit) and a few breaking changes.

RedGrid: Carbon Neutral By 2030

Holochain Dev Camp Continues

Holochain DevCamp #8 is continuing to go strong! Dev Camp participants and community devs are getting real-time support for their Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools from the Holochain dev team. These community-created tools make it much easier to build Holochain applications. Dev Campers have been building their own app using these RAD tools. These apps will then be easy for non-developers to install and use using the new Holochain launcher.

We will continue to post updates on the Holochain Twitter.
