Application of the Week

You may have noticed that SDF recently took part in sponsoring its first collegiate hackathon! I was there, which is why there wasn’t a Dev Digest last week.

Releases and Updates

Attention validators: Please make sure to upgrade to the latest version of Stellar-core — version 12.4.0. This release makes critical improvements to the way nodes communicate in the peer-to-peer network, which should mitigate latency spikes.

  • CAP-0023: Two-Part Payments with PreparedTrustLineEntry and ClaimableBalanceEntry moved from Final Comment Period (FCP) to Draft
  • CAP-0027: First-class multiplexed accounts Draft > FCP
  • CAP-0028: Clear pre-auth transaction signer on failed transactions FCP > Accepted
