In our last development update we announced the release of test-net0. The objectives of the roll-out for test-net0 was to identify edge cases, stabilize the existing code and establish its resilience with users across all platforms (Windows, macOS and Linux).

The focus was on the following:

We identified critical bottlenecks between user's wallets (sending and receiving) through the message pool which would have hindered further tests across the network (therefore the modular approach).

Importantly identified enhancements and optimization that would benefit users and developers alike medium to long-term.

Updates for the past two weeks:

I ran into a bug, how can I help?

We’re looking to improve the first test-net for future ones. If you identify any bugs or security issues, you are more than welcome to report these by opening a ticket here — Github. You can also discuss this further in any one of our channels. We do appreciate if you’re able to share your .log file along with steps to recreate the issue. These can be emailed through to dev@getsneak.org.

What’s next?

Currently we are implementing solutions to recovery over Tor which may hinder some users running Cypher. We hope to have these fixes finalized over the next couple of days.

Test-net0 has been a success in allowing the identification of edge cases and issues hindering the application and usage. There obviously can be accessibility enhancements and quality of life improvements, however we’re currently focusing on functional requirements. Resolving these before the release of test-net1 will make the process much smoother.

From next week, preparation will be begin on test-net1. We expect the release of test-net1 to be within the range of Q3 2019. Details will be provided closer to the time of release.

To experience the latest updates on Cypher, please do a git pull and publish(if you have installed before). Instructions can be found here:
