LAST WEEK’S Top Commits

Nebulas Mainnet Development

Last week, we released mainnet v1.0.7 and testnet v1.1.0. The v1.0.7 is to optimize consistency of time out transactions among different nodes. Meanwhile our testnet v1.1.0 introduces the exciting new feature of inter-contract call, which can support at most 3 levels of invocation (A->B->C). You’re welcomed to use and make valuable suggestions. Also we restructured the random generation logic and removed some API to enhance security. Learn more of inter-contract call.
