After all the refactoring, they’ve implemented the More Viable Plasma in-flight exit for ETH in their root chain contracts. This is a big step forward for, as it clears a major hurdle toward integration. With this out of the way, integration of the child chain and watcher with the updated contract can now move forward.
They’ve also finalized their updated child chain and watcher APIs so that they are both internally consistent and consistent with the eWallet. The team now has a consistent OmiseGO-styled API format across all services. This will make integration faster, easier, and generally more pleasant to work with.
The rebuild of the internal testnet is on track to be finished this week. The team now has the entire tool chain in place to easily deploy new iterations of the network, along with all the needed production support services such as metrics, telemetry, alerts, and logging. This testnet will be made available to early partners immediately. They will initially deploy Minimal Viable Plasma; this will be a relatively small window while they prove out all of tooling. Once all the feature development finishes for More Viable Plasma, they’ll quickly upgrade the testnet (still internal) to MoreVP — this is the version that, once they’re satisfied with it, goes on to become the public testnet.

State of the OMG Ecosystem. In this blog post, the team attempts to summarize the different elements of OmiseGO and the OMG ecosystem, captures key developments over the past months and provides some information on where they’re going . It might seem like a repeat of the Official Guide, but this is more succinct and offers updates. Additionally, they included an updated roadmap with key milestones. And they’ve been working with community members as well on the OMG project tracker to track progress on a smaller timescale.
